Following Manny Pacquiao asking his fans on twitter who they would like to see him fight next in the UAE, Terence Crawford has emerged as the odds-on favourite to face the Filipino boxing legend.

The super-lightweight king is followed by Amir Khan at 10/3 and Australian Jeff Horn at 7/2.

Next Manny Pacquiao opponent odds:

Terence Crawford – 10/11
Amir Khan – 10/3
Jeff Horn – 7/2
Kell Brook – 5/1
Floyd Mayweather 13/2

“There’s been a lot of speculation over who Manny Pacquiao will face next in the ring and whilst the Filipino fighter has included Kell Brook and Amir Khan in a poll on his Twitter account, there’s one clear favourite to face Pac-man in the UAE.

“The American Terence Crawford, a two-weight world champion at lightweight and light welterweight, is the current odds-on favourite at 10/11 to face Pacquiao whilst Amir Khan, despite winning the Twitter poll with 47% of more than 10,000 votes, is second favourite at 10/3,” said Ian Marmion, Director of Trading at BetStars.

”Khan’s rival Kell Brook is 5/1, but with the two British fighters seemingly destined to face each-other in the ring this year, Crawford is without doubt the leading candidate. Australian Jeff Horn, whose representatives were rumoured to be in talks with Pacquiao’s over a fight down under, currently sits third in the betting at 7/2.”
