Manny Pacquiao is reportedly flying to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to make a deal for a fight in that country on April 23 against an opponent still to be determined. Pacquiao was supposed to be fighting unbeaten Jeff Horn in Brisbane, Australia, but that fight may not happen.
It will be up to Pacquiao. His promoter Bob Arum is taking a low profile right now, so it’s unclear whether he’s still looking to make the fight against Horn or not. Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz revealed the news a week ago the possibility of his next fight taking place in the UAE rather than in Brisbane.
