Amir Khan will fight Manny Pacquiao on April 23 in a "super fight", both fighters have announced on Twitter.

After the pair revealed earlier this week that negotiations were ongoing over a bout, a date has now been agreed, but no venue yet.

There were reports earlier this week that a verbal agreement was in place for Pacquiao-Khan to take place in either Bolton or Manchester. The United Arab Emirates has been suggested as the likeliest location, but there has been no confirmation.

Pacquiao continues to be trained by Freddie Roach but Khan left the American in September 2012 and is now under the tutelage of Virgil Hunter.
