Despite the 'Pacman' saying after his last fight against Tim Bradley that it would be his last one, he's now confirmed the news that many thought and is returning to the ring in late 2016.

With Khan and Pacquiao being good friends and a potential fight so stylistically appetizing to boxing fans, don’t write this fight off just yet – for some time in 2016 perhaps.
With reports emerging today however that Khan has pulled out of negotiations for the fight completely, the Bolton man’s next fight in 2015 will most likely one would think, now not be against Manny Pacquiao.
Khan returns to training this week with Tim Bradley and past conqueror Danny Garcia being touted in some quarters as possible final foes for 2015.
