The fight is said to have been agreed on all levels except the
location and venue. Khan has been saying for weeks that he is keen to
challenge for the title in Dubai but if that is not possible then the
fight will take place on New York.
Amir Khan is keen to fight in Dubai as he has built up a huge following of
Muslim fans over the years and the added financial incentive will have a
bearing but Alexander is said to be less keen.
However, the fight looks like being made officially announced within
the next fews days, that actual location may take a while longer.
