Let the Hype Begin: Manny Pacquiao vs Conor McGregor
Manny Pacquiao is busy being a senator in the Philippines and boxing has been moved to the side lately, however, rumor has been swirling around the internet about a potential fight with MMA superstar Conor McGregor.
When Manny Pacquiao posted a photo of ConorMcGregor greeting the Irishman on Thanksgiving with a hashtag #realboxingmatch #2018, naturally people are going to wonder what that is all about.
Conor McGregor last fought inside the boxing ring against Floyd Mayweather and it looks like he is going back inside the square ring for more money and Manny Pacquiao may be the best option for him in terms of revenue.
Pacquiao who had been looking for an opponent on the other side may have finally found an interesting match that could generate the revenue that he is also looking for.
There is a 9-year age gap between the two fighters as Manny Pacquiao is already 38 years old compared with Conor who is just at 29. But it ain't really a concern. What many boxing pundits will criticize about this fight is the boxing record and ranking of the two fighters. Manny who currently holds 59 wins, 7 losses and 2 draws is a much more experienced boxer while Conor McGregor's record stands at 0 win and 1 loss courtesy of Floyd Mayweather Jr.
We know that there will be a lot of criticsm for this but it won't really stop the potential fantasy fight from happening after all boxing is also a business and a fight between Pacquiao and McGregor could make a lot more money than a fight against someone else.
Anyway, one source told us that Conor McGregor might be coming to the Philippines to challenge Pacquiao. We do not think it would be true but if it does happen then, we know it's on!
