Exactly three years ago, Conor McGregor stepped inside the boxing ring to take on the former five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The fight lasted longer than many would have anticipated as Floyd Mayweather ultimately defeated him via TKO in the tenth round.

Despite McGregor losing via TKO, he was praised by fans for lasting ten-rounds with the all-time great in Floyd Mayweather. Over the years, Conor has expressed interest in fighting inside the ring again on several occasions and even numerous boxers have expressed interest in fighting Conor.


One such boxer that has previously called out Conor McGregor and vice versa is Manny Pacquiao.

However, if Pacquiao’s coach Justin Fortune had his way, he would never let Manny Pacquaio fight Conor.

I mean, my God, this is boxing, we are boxers. McGregor is an MMA guy and we can’t do MMA, and he can’t box that’s very simple,” he continued.

Pacquiao and McGregor are signed to the same management agency

Earlier this year Manny Pacquiao signed with Paradigm sports management company and it’s the same management company that also has global MMA star Conor under its wings.

I am proud to partner with Paradigm Sports Management and am excited for the opportunities that [Paradigm president and CEO] Audie Attar and PSM have to offer,” Pacquiao said in a statement earlier this year. “One thing I want everyone to remember is to always think positively. Never think negatively; that is the beginning of your downfall. Everything is possible.” (H/T-

While Manny Pacquiao is 40-years old, he is still fighting top-level opponents and last year he defeated Keith Thurman via unanimous decision.

Do you guys think Conor and Manny Pacquiao will ever cross paths inside the ring?
