As it stated in “Michael is on his way back to meet with Manny but it’s kaddish for the UAE deal.
Bob Arum says a promised $38 million for a Pacquaio-Khan fight never materialized and the bout won’t be taking place.
Khan won’t be Manny’s next opponent.”
Arum said he expects Pacquiao to fight elsewhere in June or July, depending on the schedule of the senate in the Philippines, where Pacquiao serves.
Instead, Pacquiao went chasing after a supposed $38 million pot being dangled by an unnamed investment group that wanted to bring him to the United Arab Emirates to fight former unified junior welterweight titlist Amir Khan in late April.

Manny Pacquiao will not fight in the United Arab Emirates as he’d hoped on April 22, and Amir Khan is now seen as an opponent who’ll have to wait until the second half of 2017.
If he doesn’t, there’s nothing we can do.”Caption Dodgers FanFest: Take me out to the ball game Sights and sounds from Saturday’s Dodgers FanFest at Dodger Stadium.

Arum said Pacquiao’s interest in pursuing talk of a $38-million offer to fight England’s former junior-welterweight champion Khan proved to be a quixotic chase.
as informed in Some boxing fans think that Arum never wanted Pacquiao to fight Khan in the first place.
Arum had been trying to put together a fight between Pacquiao and little known but highly ranked #2 WBO contender Jeff Horn before an offer from the UAE for the Pacquiao vs. Khan fight popped up.
With Arum putting Oscar Valdez vs. Miguel Marriaga on PPV, it would make sense for him to match Pacquiao vs. Khan on PPV as well.
Pacquiao vs. Khan would likely bring in my PPV buys on HBO, but it doesn’t look like Arum is interested in making that one.
By Chris Williams: Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is saying that his fighter Manny Pacquiao WON’T be fighting Amir Khan next in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for hi next fight.
