Manny Pacquiao Responds To 2018 McGregor Boxing Match Idea

UFC Interim Champ Tony Ferguson Calls Out Conor McGregor

Pacquiao said he might return to the ring in April.

"So, if he applied, I would see no reason why we wouldn't license him".

Since initially sending Conor McGregor a tweet in recent times mentioning to him to keep fit for 2018, a number of reports have emerged that suggest Pacquiao could in fact take on McGregor under boxing rules next year. "It is OK with both of us", Pacquiao said last week.

UFC president Dana White did not take too kindly to rumours of legendary boxer Manny Pacquiao being in talks with MMA fighter Conor McGregor for another potential one-off mega bout.

This past summer, McGregor fought Floyd Mayweather in a highly-anticipated boxing match. McGregor (21-3), who hasn't fought in the UFC since he won the lightweight championship in November 2016, posted a photo inspired by the video game "Grand Theft Auto", with the simple caption "Tony".

Still, Pacquiao stressed that whether or not McGregor agrees with the negotiations, he is just one of the opponents being considered by the boxer.




"No, that would be weird cause he's under contract with us", he said.

White also responded to Arum's criticism saying that UFC was "cratering" and White "needed boxing to save himself". The UFC needs it's biggest star competing in the Octagon.

Speculation has built over recent months regarding another "superfight" this time between McGregor and another legendary fighter in Manny Pacquiao. But, if they have, the UFC President says he'll be suing the boxing star's camp.

"If that's true, I will be suing Manny Pacquaio and whoever's representing him".

Pacquiao's latest fight was with Australian Jeff Horn back in July in Brisbane, Australia, when he was stripped of his title via a controversial unanimous decision by the judges.

The UFC has been in talks with McGregor about a new deal.
