He also told AFP he would like to be the country’s president if it is “God’s will”.
Pacquiao confirmed he is in negotiations with Mayweather and Khan but said he had no preference about who is opponent will be.

“I will fight anybody, anywhere,” he said. “I am going to fight probably before the election.
“The election is coming next year, May, and before that I will probably have one fight.”
He added: “We are going to finalise by November or December.”

he fight would take place in March or early April next year, he said. Pacquiao also told Qatari broadcaster Al Jazeera that any fight could take place in the Gulf.

The Filipino is in Qatar at the invitation of AIBA’s president, Ching-Kuo Wu, a personal friend.
He arrived on Thursday and is expected to leave on Friday morning.

Pacquaio, who lost to Mayweather in his last fight, said he was free from a shoulder injury and ready to fight.
Earlier on Thursday, Taz Khan, the uncle and manager of British boxer Amir Khan told AFP talks had begun with the Filipino’s management team, but “at the moment that’s all there is”.
Amir Khan was keen for the fight to happen, said Taz.

“He’s always up for any fight if it’s on the table, he”l take it.”
The British boxer is expected to visit the championships at the weekend.
Pacquaio also confirmed his political ambitions.

Despite some criticism from inside the Philippines about his political record so far — he was elected to the country’s House of Representatives in 2010 — the boxer, an eight-division world champion, said he was aiming for the top office.

Asked if he wanted to be president, he replied: “Of course, why not? If that’s my destiny. if that’s God’s plan. Before I started boxing I never thought I could conquer seven, eight weight divisions, who knows?”
The AIBA World Championships continue until October 15.
