Renowned Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao has announced that he has signed a formal agreement with the sports management agency Paradigm Sports, representing, in particular, the interests of Conor McGregor. And this situation can become decisive when organizing a duel between the two most popular fighters on the planet.
Apparently, negotiations about the fight are underway, as McGregor recently “let slip” on social networks that he was going to box with the world champion in eight weight classes, “somewhere in the Middle East.”
This information was also confirmed by Pacquiao, however, warning that “the case is far from over.”
McGregor made his professional boxing debut in 2017 and retired to the UFC after being defeated by Floyd Mayweather. And this year he announced a return comeback to boxing.
WBA welterweight champion Pacquiao last entered the ring in July 2019 and his continued absence is largely attributed to a pandemic.
Pacquiao ended his post on the Paradigm Sports deal with the words:
“Thanks to my family and fans. Big things are coming! Be in touch!”
