KHAN AND PACQUIAO STORY: Amir Khan said on Tuesday (July 16) he had agreed a deal to fight Manny Pacquiao in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia later this year.

Britain's Khan stopped Australia's Billy Dib in the fourth round in Jeddah on July 13 to win the WBC international welterweight title.

Filipino Pacquiao, 40, is scheduled to fight American Keith Thurman in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Khan told British media his fight against Pacquiao was scheduled for Nov.

8 and would happen even if the Filipino were to lose to Thurman.

Khan was due to fight eight-division world champion Pacquiao in 2017 in the United Arab Emirates but the deal fell through.

Pacquiao has a record of 61 wins, seven defeats and two draws in a 24-year professional career while Khan has 34 wins and five defeats.
