Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao's search for his next opponent continues and he has asked his fans to select his next foe.

Speculation had been rife for a number of weeks now that he was due to face-off against the unknown Jeff Horn at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane but the Filipino star didn't exactly warm to the idea.

He instead confirmed on his Twitter account that he will be fighting in the United Arab Emirates next against an opponent yet to be decided.

He took to social media yesterday to get his fans to select between either Amir Khan, Jeff Horn, Terence Crawford or Kell Brook.

Khan, Brook and Crawford would all be reasonable tests for boxing's only eight weight world champion as his career draws to a close.

He is on a two fight win streak having beaten Timothy Bradly in their rubber match and comfortably out-pointed Jessie Vargas to become WBO welterweight champion.  

Pacquiao currently has a record of 59-6-2 and has fought the biggest names available throughout his career which included bouts with Marco Antonio Barrera, Juan Manuel Marquez, Erik Morales, Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather.
