Former four-weight champion Mikey Garcia has said that MMA superstar Conor McGregor will not be Manny Pacquiao’s next opponent as he has already taken the spot.
“The fight has not yet been scheduled. I do not have information about the date of the fight yet. But I think it will be already in 2021,” Garcia said in an interview with YouTube channel FightHype. “I saw McGregor’s tweets, but I haven’t read anything from Pacquiao about that. Did he have any response at all at this point? I haven’t seen anything like that.”
I just read what McGregor tweeted, they say, his next fight with Manny Pacquiao in Saudi Arabia or in the Middle East, or somewhere there. Well, I think he might be right. I’m sure his next fight is against Manny Pacquiao. But Manny Pacquiao’s next fight won’t be with Conor McGregor.
In the next fight, Manny Pacquiao will fight me. So McGregor should take a number and get in line. Manny Pacquiao may be McGregor’s next opponent, but first Pacquiao has to fight me, and I’m 100% sure of that. “
We will remind, at the end of last week, Conor McGregor announced via Twitter that he will fight Pacquiao in the Middle East. A little later, the Filipino boxer team confirmed that they are in talks with McGregor about a boxing match that will take place next year. However, since then, no clarifying information has been reported.
