Khan is a British boxer with a Pakistan decent. It makes perfect sense to make the fight happen in Dubai. It is the melting pot of businessmen and of diversified foreign workers. I can almost imagine that gambling for this fight will be as big as if the fight is in Macau or Vegas.

Dubai has never seen a fight of this magnitude and this event will be catapulted not just in the US but  also worldwide as one of the significant boxing events of our time not only because of the fighters but also the venue. 

Also, there are about 600,000 Filipinos living in the UAE and making the venue of the fight in Dubai have delighted many Filipinos living and working there. It is the only fight perhaps that's viable for Filipino boxing fans right now as a fight in the Philippines may not make sense financially.

Manny Pacquiao had mentioned in the past that he would stage a fight in the middle east and it looks like it's going to happen especially after Michael Konz and his promoter Bob Arum has confirmed the match.

The 30 year old Amir Khan is looking to bounce back from his last fight against Saul Alvarez in which he lost via knockout in round 6.  The bout was fought at a contracted catchweight of 155 and it is for the World Boxing Council World Middleweight title. Khan moved  up from his original welterweight class. His current record stands at 34 wins with 4 loss.

Manny Pacquiao, on the other hand, is enjoying a 2 fight winning streak. His last two against Jessie Vargas and Timothy Bradley Jr. Pacquiao who is still in great shape as boxer has never sold PPV the way he was selling when he was still in his prime, except when he fought Mayweather.

The fight against Amir Khan may boost his PPV numbers as it seems like boxing fans in the US and around the world want to see the fight happen. Pacquiao a few weeks ago created a poll asking his fans who he should fight next and Amir Khan was the runaway winner, while the Australian boxer Jeff Horn who was initially being considered as the opponent was dead last.

Pacquiao who is active as a Senator right now may have his hands full this time. Amir Khan is fast and being a sparring partner in the past gives Khan the leverage of knowing the quirk and style of Manny Pacquiao. The only thing that could let Khan down is his fragile chin in which Pacquiao can capitalize on and perhaps get a knockout win that has eluded him for a long time.

Who do you think will win the fight?
