And a prospective “Battle of Britain” fight against Sheffield hitter Kell Brook has been talked up for years, but has never materialised.
But now Khan, who hasn’t fought since a brutal knockout defeat to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, is confident he can get one of the two by the end of 2017.
He said: “I will announce a fight within the next month. I am in talks with a few people, Manny Pacquiao is one name, Kell Brook is another.”
Khan said how he wants to put rival Brook “in his place”.
He added: “The reason the fight hasn’t happened till now is because he is fighting in [in two weeks]. That is a mandatory fight.
“Then after that maybe we fight. I am one fighter who has never turned anyone down. I fight anybody put in front of me. So let’s see.
“It’s time now that I put him in his place.”
Kell Brook is next in action on May 27, when he fights undefeated Errol Spence at Bramall Lane, the home of Sheffield United Football Club.
