Pacquiao-Khan dili mahinayon
Emmanuel B. Villaruel (Banat) - March 9, 2017 - 12:00am

CEBU, Philippines - Walay mahitabo nga “superfight” tali nilang Manny Pacquiao ug Amir Khan.

Si Top Rank chairman Bob Arum mibutyag ngadto sa Los Angeles Times nga dili mahinayon ang away sa rason nga ang gitanyag nga $38 million ngadtong Pacquiao aron adto moaway sa United Arab Emirates karong Abril hanap pa sa diyes panas ug dili katuohan segun sa nahauna niyang panahom.

“Michael (Koncz) is on his way back to meet with Manny but it’s kaddish for the UAE deal. It’s dead,” matud pa ni Arum. “I’m talking to him about another proposal for another fight, not Khan. Khan won't be Manny’s next opponent.”

“When they contacted me, I told them it was pie in the sky, that this is crazy, it’s not going to happen,” dugang pa ni Arum.

Nagkanayon hinuon si Arum nga duna pa’y posibilidad nga mag-abot silang Pacquiao ug Khan karong tuiga, apan dili sa labing sayo nga panahon segun sa inisyal nga nasabotan.

Sa pagka karon, lagmit nga si welterweight champion Pacquiao mobalik sa orihinal niyang plano nga moaway sunod didto sa Australia batok ni Jeff Horn sa wala pa hisayring binyu.

Sa pagsulat ning balita, nagdumili pa paghatag og komento ang kampo ni Pacquiao kabahin sa kanselasyon sa nauyonan nilang sangka ni Khan.

“We have no comment at this time,” mensahe pa sa Canadian adviser ni Pacquiao nga si Michael Koncz ngadto sa Philstar.com.

“Manny and I spoke and decided we will make no comments one way or the other at this time.”

Mipahibawo si Koncz nga naabot siya sa Pilipinas kagahapon lamang sa buntag gikan sa biyahe  sa Amerika diin siya nakig-estorya ni Arum.

Kahinumduman, nga si Koncz maoy mipasiugda sa negosasyon didto sa UAE, apan ang iyang pasiatab nga 100 porsiyento siyang segurado nga adto didto mokatkat og balik ibabaw sa ring si Pacquiao daw sa naigo og kilat human mideklara si Arum nga “patay” na ang maong away. (BANAT NEWS)
