Hall of Fame veteran Arum responded to those reports by saying: ‘This is absolute, total bulls*** being generated by Khan’s team in England.’

The only change to that discussion is a possible move of venue from Down Under to the Middle East.

Arum says: ‘Manny is being offered an insane amount of money to fight in Dubai or Abu Dhabi and is looking into that.’

Khan has been frustrated previously when super fights against both Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather appeared to be agreed but those plans were scrapped.

The former Olympic medalist and two-time world champion may have jumped the gun this time, but that would not necessarily exclude a fight against Pacquiao, if the 38-year-old continues to amalgamate boxing with his duties as a Philippines Senator, later in the year.

Khan has already been looking for a warm-up opponent for a fight in Britain in May.

The Bolton-born fighter is committed to training down to Pacquiao’s welterweight division.

In November last year, Pacquiao admitted he was willing to face Khan.

‘I’m willing to fight anybody,’ he said. ‘Amir Khan is my friend and it’s good to fight somebody that you know. That’s better.’
