Promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed that in fact Amir Khan is not the only one of his fighters he is looking with matching against Manny Pacquiao.
Eddie Hearn and DAZN are leading contenders at the moment to secure the services of Manny Pacquiao.
Up until now most of the talk surrounded a possible Khan vs Pacquiao fight but that’s not necessarily the case as it turns out.
Speaking to Kugan Cassius of IFL TV, Eddie Hearn said:
“Actually both guys (Khan and Brook) have the Pacquiao fight to look at. His guys flew over to Boston to meet me. Good meeting.”
“Brook could fight Pacquiao. Khan could fight Pacquiao. If Khan wants too much money for Pacquiao maybe Brook jumps in to fight Pacquiao.”
He went on to mention that Brook vs Khan is priority next up but that:
“We could do the Pacquiao fight in November or December ourselves and then do the winner of Brook vs Khan to fight Pacquiao in the summer.”
Pacquiao has mentioned he would like to fight next on December 2nd.
Khan returns to action in a couple of weeks time against Samuel Vargas.
