MANNY Pacquiao and Amir Khan announced on their social media accounts they have agreed to a fight on April 23.

Pacquiao said both camps agreed to the bout in response to the clamor of fans.

"Negotiations between team Pacquiao and team Khan have come to terms for the April 23 bout as this is what the fans wanted. #PacquiaoKhan," Pacquiao wrote on his Twitter account.

For his part, Khan wrote: "My team and I have agreed terms with Manny Pacquiao and his team for a super fight #pacquiaokhan #April23rd."

There was no mention on both tweets, however, on where the fight will be held although it has been reported that Pacquiao’s next bout could be held in the United Arab Emirates.
