Manny Pacquiao: 'Four possible opponents for last fight'

Eight-weight world champion Manny Pacquiao reveals that a shortlist of four possible opponents has been drawn up ahead of his final professional bout.

Manny Pacquiao has suggested that four fighters are in the running to be his opponent for his final bout next year.

Pacquiao will end his glittering career in the spring before focusing on politics in the Philippines, and the eight-weight world champion has revealed that Great Britain's Amir Khan is one of a quartet of potential opponents that are under consideration.

The 36-year-old told Emirates 24/7: "We have Amir Khan, Danny Garcia, Terence Crawford or Timothy Bradley.

"But I don't know yet, a lot of names have been given to me by my promoter Bob Arum. We are yet to finalise anything."

Pacquiao has also ruled out a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr, despite speculation that a second clash might take place.
