Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan in negotiations for Spring showdown

Weleterweight superstar Manny Pacquiao took to Twitter today to state that he was in negotiations to face British welterweight Amir Khan.

"My team and I are in negotiations with Amir Khan for our next fight. Further announcement coming soon."-Pacquiao tweeted.

Rumors have been aplenty with who Pacquiao planned in facing next. Last month reports stated that Pacquiao would face undefeated Australian Jeff Horn in Australia. Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum confirmed that the plan to face Jeff Horn was true. Pacquiao's advisor Michael Koncz seemed to be on a different page stating that Pacquiao had yet to make a decision to face Horn.

Two weeks ago, reports began to surface that Pacquiao would be fighting in the United Arab Emirates. Members of Pacquiao's camp confirmed this with us stating that a fight in Australia was not in the plan. While Arum and Koncz have been on different pages for weeks, Pacquiao himself has said that he will fight in the UAE next, and yesterday confirmed that Amir Khan was the planned opponent. Amir Khan also responded to the tweet confirming what Pacquiao said.

"#Pacquiaokhan
