Manny Pacquiao is coming off of a loss to Jeff Horn that he suffered back in July, but the Filipino politician and 8-division World Champion boxer may already have another opponent in mind for a fight in 2018…UFC Lightweight Champion “The Notorious” Conor McGregor.
Just hours ago, Pacquiao posted a picture of McGregor on Facebook. Below the picture he wished the Irishman a Happy Thanksgiving and advised him to “stay fit.” He then followed up with the hashtags “#realboxingmatch” and “#2018.”
Stranger things have certainly happened in the world of combat sports. Earlier this year, McGregor, who had no previous professional boxing experience, fought undefeated, multiple-time boxing champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Floyd won via 10th round TKO.
Could Conor McGregor versus Manny Pacquiao be the next inter-combat sport super fight?
Fans will have to wait and see.
