Amir Khan looks set to get his wish and face Manny Pacquiao in a mega-money bout later this year.

The Bolton star says he and the Filipino great have signed to fight in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on November 8.

The 32-year-old defeated the overmatched Billy Dib in the Gulf state on Friday night, netting a reported £7 million, and has long held the ambition to take on the multi-weight world champion.

Pacquiao, 40, first takes on Keith Thurman for the WBA World welterweight title in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Victory for the ring legend could see that belt on the line in the Middle East in November, Khan having come up short in a challenge for the WBO title against Terence Crawford in April.
