Most recently, Alan Alger was quoted as having said, “Nothing is set in stone, but at 4/11 the odds suggest that Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan will tie up a deal to fight in 2017. Abu Dhabi or Dubai are rumoured to be ready to stump up the $30m+ to stage the fight and we go 2/5 that the UAE hosts Khan-Pacquiao. Las Vegas is unsurprisingly a popular destination with the punters at 3/1”.
With the fighters so evenly matched, we go 10/11 that the destination of the IBF Welterweight belt will come down to a judges' decision.

"According to reports, Mayweather-McGregor is happening. I can't remember anything like this ever before, but pricing the fight hasn't been difficult and we make Floyd Mayweather Jr long odds-on at 1/12. Conor McGregor will have his supporters and t[...]
"Kell Brook has got to make a call on whether he stays at 147lbs or steps up to light-middleweight. At the moment, the odds strongly suggest he'll be defending his IBF welterweight belt against Errol Spence Jr". "Mandatory challenger Spence is 2/5 t[...]
It seems a step up to 154lbs is still a fight or two away, with the likes of Miguel Cotto and Erislandy Lara distant 16/1 shots to face Brook next.
"Manny Pacquiao v Jeff Horn is 1/2 to take place Down Under, as the Aussie's promoters press hard to make Brisbane the confirmed venue". "Nothing is set in stone, though, and the traders have priced up the US at 5/1 to host the welterweight title fi[...]
"Looking past the Molina fight, punters have been happy to take the 1/5 that Klitschko is Joshua's first opponent in the new year". "David Haye needs a belt before AJ's sucked into that fight, while Joshua is 9/2 to be lured into a bout with Price b[...]
Brook-Khan would be a lively contest and the betting suggests the possibility of that fight hangs in the balance. We go 4/7 it goes ahead in 2017 and 5/4 it doesn't.
"Eddie Hearn has mentioned a possible matchup with Kubrat Pulev for some time but he's weak in the market to be Anthony Joshua's next opponent at 11/4.
The betting suggests both Joseph Parker and Bermane Stiverne are more likely propositions, with the latter favourite to secure the bout at evens. Stiverne packs plenty of power and would be a good test for young Joshua's chin. Similarly the 37-year-[...]
"Anthony Joshua is a star in the making, and it's more a question of when, rather than if, he'll win on Saturday. While he might not beat his personal best of an 83-second victory, we still think AJ will make short work of Dillian Whyte. Fans of the[...]
12/1 to beat Fury, Klitschko and Deontay Wilder in the next two and a half years will probably be looked back upon as mightily generous odds.
"Tyson Fury and [Vitali] Klitschko had both failed to stop Kevin Johnson, which makes Anthony Joshua's pummelling of the American within two rounds all the more special". "Although he'll probably fight Dillian Whyte first, a mouth-watering bout agai[...]
"Anthony Joshua is as impressive a heavyweight as we've seen in a long time, and he'll want to show that he's fully recovered from a back injury by dispatching Gavern in short order on Saturday."
