Manny Pacquiao vs Conor Mcgregor

Manny Pacquiao names Conor Mcgregor as his next target!   

For his upcoming return to the ring this year, Pacquiao aims to get the biggest name in MMA for a fight: Conor McGregor. Until now, the Notorious’s confirmed schedule for 2021 is the upcoming UFC 257 event. This time, the Irish MMA fighter will be meeting Dustin Poirier. As his focus is now on this long-awaiting rematch, we should see what he has in stores after this January. The event will take place on January 23rd.

McGregor also recently shared more details on his upcoming match. He is now in the best shape of his life. Furthermore, his condition is even better than his past self, where he knocked out Donald Cerrone and Eddie Alvarez. However, this doesn’t mean he could overlook his opponent. The former interim lightweight champion is a different case from when he was. Additionally, the Irish fighter also expressed that he has been looking forward to fighting Poirier.

One of the reasons is that Dustin Poirier is South-Paw, similar to Pacquiao’s stance. As a result, McGregor could prepare himself better if they got booked for the boxing match. We have previously reported that both teams have been negotiating to make this clash happen. It would be easy to see why Pacman is trying to pursue this match-up as it promises a guaranteed huge payday. Furthermore, the boxer also intends to donate a big chunk to his countrymen. If he chooses to fight other current champions like Crawford or Spence, the revenue won’t be that high for sure. 

Past experience 

We need to mention that Conor Mcgregor also fought in the boxing ring once before. At that time, the former champ went against Floyd Mayweather. It was one of the second-biggest fights of all time, placing after the legendary Mayweather vs. Pacquiao match.
