Conor McGregor Teases Potential Fight With Manny Pacquiao On Twitter
By Mike Parrott
Conor McGregor may be entering the boxing ring once again after his memorable loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr with McGregor teasing a potential fight with Manny Pacquiao.
The 'Notorious' Conor McGregor looks like he will be stepping in the boxing ring once again soon.
After his memorable loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the boxing ring back in 2017, McGregor returned to the UFC and took part in two fights against Khabib Nurmagomedov and Donald Cerrone. McGregor split these fights after a humiliating loss to Nurmagomedov, but dominated Cerrone knocking him out within 40 seconds.
And even though McGregor has supposedly 'retired' from the UFC for the third time in four years, the Notorious still wants to fight, and he seems he has another boxing legend in his crosshairs.
This comes after he tweeted 'tinatanggap ko' which means 'I accept' in Filipino.

Manny Pacquiao, the boxing legend McGregor seems to be after, has reportedly broken down in talks with a potential Terrence Crawford fight. With arguably the second-biggest name in boxing this Millenium available for a fight, this fight could happen.
Especially due to Pacquiao signing with Paradigm Sports Management, the same promotion and management team that represents McGregor.
Even though this fight could end up the same way of McGregor-Mayweather in which Mayweather Jr. convincingly beat McGregor, the PPV money and hype this fight would create would be a win-win for both of these legendary fighters.

The reality for all fighters right now is reduced purses, but Pacquiao-McGregor could be the sort of pay-per-view draw, even without a live gate and all that comes with having fans in an arena, where the fighters get paid at least somewhat close to what they normally might.
