Manny Pacquiao wants a shot at Conor McGregor, too

  • Manny Pacquiao drops major hint over fight with Conor McGregor

Pacquiao (59-6-2) won both his fights in 2016 against Timothy Bradley (Apr. 9) and Jessie Vargas (Nov. 5), and many analysts felt that he had Horn defeated at the SunCorp Stadium in Brisbane. "Pacquiao did that just that, tweeting a picture of Conor McGregor telling him to "stay fit" before adding the hashtag "#realboxingmatch".

REUTERS/Steve MarcusUFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor of Ireland arrives for a post-fight news conference at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S. August 26, 2017.

It looks like all is not well between Conor McGregor and the UFC top brass...

...

And he has taken to Instagram in an effort to tease McGregor into fighting him.

Should McGregor and Pacquiao go ahead, it would be one of the most lucrative fights in boxing.

We'd actually love to see a fight between these two, it probably wouldn't earn quite as much as the McGregor/Mayweather fight but it's still be a pretty huge money maker for the two fighters.

Before the bout against Horn, Manny Pacquiao had assured a rematch clause for the WBO welterweight title. Having lost to Floyd Mayweather in his first professional boxing match this year, who will "The Notorious" face as he returns to the octagon to defend his championship belt?

Pacquiao also bowed down to Mayweather in 2015 suffering a unanimous decision setback in the fight dubbed as the "Fight of the Century".
