On Friday, Khan stopped Billy Dib in the fourth round of their main-event bout in Saudi Arabia.
And following his 32nd professional victory, he addressed his desire to fight Pacquiao but insists he'll not wait around.
"I made that mistake in the past when I was waiting for Floyd and he never fought me so it was a waste of time," he said.
"Pacquiao is who I want but I'm not going to wait like I did with Mayweather for years and years.

"Now I just think if it comes to me, it comes to me. If it doesn't happen we will move onto something else.
"I still can't believe I've had 39 fights now, even though I've had two years of waiting around.
"Maybe it was like a blessing because my body needed a break and now I've got more time ahead of me."
Pacquiao, meanwhile, will face WBA (super) welterweight world champion Keith Thurman on July 27 and Khan believes his former stable mate will come out victorious in Las Vegas.
"So the Pacquiao-Thurman fight, I think I favour more towards Pacquiao," he said when asked for his prediction.
"Because Pacquiao has fought better opposition, he's got the speed and the movement."
