As reported prior by boxen247.com, Manny Pacquiao is close to announcing his fight with MMA star Conor McGregor, likely to be headed to early 2021.
So it’s been announced that Pacquiao has now signed with Paradigm Sports (based in Irvine, California), the same management as McGregor. This move will now make Pacquiao vs McGregor easier to make and now is more than likely to happen as this move seems more than coincidental.
“Grateful for the support of my family, team, and fans as I continue my professional boxing journey,” said Pacquiao, as he announced the deal with Paradigm Sports.
“Big things coming! Stay tuned.”
McGregor, with a professional boxing record of 0-1 and against another all time great (the first being Floyd Mayweather) will cause worldwide interest and ultimately, money. This is what it will be about.
Yes, another guilty pleasure of sorts I would pay to see even if it is little more than a circus event with a little bit of intrigue thrown in (it will be a PPV event). At what point though can McGregor carry on with these high profile boxing matches, especially if he becomes 0-2 (if Pacquiao wins)? I am sure Paulie Malignaggi would be called out.
But what if, and this is a big if, McGregor gets lucky against Pacquiao who turns 42 in December. Even legends can’t go on forever.
