Crawford became the undisputed lightweight champion in 2017 before moving up to claim the WBO welterweight strap a year later.

And now Crawford’s promoter Bob Arum has confirmed he hopes to get the blockbuster fight signed and sealed for November.

Speaking to Boxing News the 88-year-old said: “The Pacquiao fight, obviously we’d like to do it. Whether we can do it, how we can do it, that’s what we’re figuring out now.

“Obviously, if it can happen it’ll happen, and if it can’t happen, it won’t happen. But nothing is concrete on that.

“We hope we can do it. We’re trying, but this is not a usual situation.”

“We told Terence that he’s scheduled to fight in November.

“If it can’t be Pacquiao for various reasons, then we’ll match him with somebody else.

“But we told Terence to prepare for mid-November, whether it’s the 14th or the 21st.”
