Khan told talkSPORT’s Dom McGuinness: “It’s signed off and done. To get Manny Pacquiao is amazing and to have him sign that dotted line I think is brilliant.

“Yeah, that’s what we’re looking at next, hopefully we can get that fight. Manny’s a great champion.

“No matter how he does in this fight against Keith Thurman, I still think it’s a big fight.

“It’s back in Saudi Arabia, in Riyadh, on November 8.”

However, when asked about the claim, Pacquiao’s camp were hesitant to commit to anything just yet.

MP Promotions representative Sean Gibbons exclusively told talkSPORT.com: “At this time Senator Pacquiao has one fight on his mind and that is Saturday July 20 vs Keith Thurman on FOX PPV!!

“After July 20, the Senator will look at all options for his next fight!! Viva Senator Pacquiao!!”
