Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao and Britain’s Amir Khan have finalised the terms of their fight that is due to take place in the UAE.

In a tweet this morning, Pacquaio, a six-weight world champion, announced the bout date will be April 23.

“Negotiations between team Pacquiao and team Khan have come to terms for the April 23 bout as this is what the fans wanted,” the boxer said.

Khan also tweeted on Sunday saying: “My team an[d] I have agreed terms with Manny Pacquiao and his team for a super fight.”

Pacquiao's Twitter followers recently voted Khan as the opponent they would like to see him fight next.

Two weeks ago, Pacquiao announced that his next will be in the UAE, with Abu Dhabi believe to be the venue, but media reports have mentioned Dubai as the location for the highly anticipated bout.

Both boxers with arguably their best days behind them. I bet the payday is huge with Manny getting the lion's share of the purse.
