Laban ni Pacquiao kay Khan posibleng gawin sa Nobyembre
(Pilipino Star Ngayon) - March 17, 2017 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines -  Kung mangyari man ang laban ni Manny Pacquiao kay dating world welterweight king Amir Khan, ito ay maaaring itakda sa Nobyembre.

Ito ang sinabi ni Bob Arum ng Top Rank Promotions matapos mabasura ang bakbakan sana nina Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KOs) at Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) sa Abril dahil sa kabiguan ng isang investment group sa United Arab Emirates na maipakita ang ipina­ngakong premyong $38 milyon kay 'Pacman'.

“The Khan fight can’t happen in April because the people who were putting on the money were not able to,” wika ni Arum sa panayam ng CBS Sports. “Hopefully, that fight can happen in November.”

Bago pa matanso si Pac­quiao at ang Canadian business adviser nitong si Michael Koncz sa pangako ng naturang UAE group ay inihayag na ni Arum ang pagharap ng Filipino world eight-division champion kay Australian challenger Jeff Horn (16-0-1, 11 KOs).

Nagduda si Arum nang mangako ang UAE na bi­bigyan ang 38-anyos na si Pacquiao ng premyong $38 milyon para labanan ang 30-anyos na si Khan sa Dubai.

Si Koncz ang siyang nag­pursigeng kumbinsihin si Pacquiao na tanggapin ang naturang alok.

Ngunit sa huli ay kapwa sila nagsisi.

Inaasahang kasama sa bagong panukalang ibinigay ni Arum kay Pacquiao ay ang pangalan ni Horn.

“I don’t know yet where Pacquiao’s return will be,” sabi ni Arum.

“We are discussing various places, but obviously the fight finances is always there as part of making the fight, so that’s not a problem,” dagdag pa nito.

Nanggaling si Pacquiao sa isang unanimous decision win laban kay Jessie Var­gas noong Nobyembre.
