Rumor: Conor McGregor is Coming to the Philippines to Challenge Manny Pacquiao

Let the Hype Begin: Manny Pacquiao vs Conor McGregor

Manny Pacquiao is busy being a senator in the Philippines and boxing has been moved to the side lately, however, rumor has been swirling around the internet about a potential fight with MMA superstar Conor McGregor.
When Manny Pacquiao posted a photo of ConorMcGregor greeting the Irishman on Thanksgiving with a hashtag #realboxingmatch #2018, naturally people are going to wonder what that is all about.
Conor McGregor last fought inside the boxing ring against Floyd Mayweather and it looks like he is going back inside the square ring for more money and Manny Pacquiao may be the best option for him in terms of revenue.
Pacquiao who had been looking for an opponent on the other side may have finally found an interesting match that could generate the revenue that he is also looking for.

There is a 9-year age gap between the two fighters as Manny Pacquiao is already 38 years old compared with Conor who is just at 29. But it ain’t really a concern. What many boxing pundits will criticize about this fight is the boxing record and ranking of the two fighters.  Manny who currently holds 59 wins, 7 losses and 2 draws is a much more experienced boxer while Conor McGregor’s record stands at 0 win and 1 loss courtesy of Floyd Mayweather Jr.
We know that there will be a lot of criticsm for this but it won’t really stop the potential fantasy fight from happening after all boxing is also a business and a fight between Pacquiao and McGregor could make a lot more money than a fight against someone else.
Anyway, one source told us that Conor McGregor might be coming to the Philippines to challenge Pacquiao. We do not think it would be true but if it does happen then, we know it’s on!

Boxing World Triggered by Manny Pacquiao’s Cryptic Instagram Post Directed to Conor McGregor

Is Pacquiao fighting Connor McGregor in 2018?

Pacquiao’s Instagram Post: Happy Thanksgiving! Stay fit my friend. #realboxingmatch #2018
Why would Pacquiao greet Conor McGregor Happy Thanksgiving with a hashtag #realboxingmatch?
There’s definitely something in the air and Pacquiao may be cooking something for next year.
Pacquiao who had been mum about his next boxing move just gave a hint of what could be in store for us next year.

Conor McGregor recently fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. and lost the fight in the process however he won his biggest paycheck ever. This probably explains why we have not seen him inside the cage lately.
Pacquiao, on the other hand, is busy with his governmental responsibilities and had not fought since he lost his WBO Welterweight title to Jeff Horn in Australia.

What if Pacquiao vs McGregor happens? #PacMac

Surely, this will be a big hit for sports fans in general but it will also attract a lot of criticisms in boxing and maybe in the MMA world. While this ain’t really the kind of boxing match that we want to see we are intrigued by the concept of seeing two of the best in their own sport go at it inside the ring.

We already had a taste of it when Mayweather fought McGregor and surely in this day and age, people are always looking for fantasy matches like this and if you ask me, this may not be far from reality.
One of those fights that you probably think is stupid but you will watch anyway because it will be the talk of the town and is certainly a money maker

Conor McGregor Wants a Rematch Against Floyd, Will it Happen?

I’ll beat Mayweather in the rematch- McGregor

August 26, 2017, one of the most controversial yet successful professional boxing event was held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Two athletes from different backgrounds met inside the cage that ultimately ended as expected with the fighter holding 49 wins with no loss in his professional boxing record  and who stopped a fighter with a zero boxing record. 
How did this happen?
Money Talks. And we are not talking about Floyd although we also know that he runs his mouth as fast as his hands go. That faithful night, Floyd Mayweather resembled a different but still a good fighter as he easily defeated an MMA fighter and took home one of his easiest and biggest payday courtesy of the popular MMA fighter.
Today, Connor McGregor has not fought anyone, both in boxing or in MMA and we can all speculate about the reasons but one of the obvious ones is because he doesn’t need to work yet, especially after all the money he earned fighting Floyd.
Recently, Floyd is rumored to be fighting back in the UFC against Nate Diaz but nothing is final until we get that announcement straight from UFC. Conor also got some challenge from professional boxers like Paulie Malignaggi, but it looks like he wants more.
“If I got another go I would beat him,” said McGregor to Sky Sports News. “It’s a style of fighting that caught me off guard because he never fights like that. I did not prepare or anticipate it. Ultimately it got him the win. Much respect to him but it is what it is.”
This was the exact words of the fighting Irishman as he looks to be angling another rematch with Floyd again in a hope to get another big payday. Although the rematch would be very unlikely because Floyd has officially announced his retirement and had promised not to return back, we all know the power of money and I won’t keep the door closed for the possibility.
My guess, however, is that he will be back in the UFC anytime soon.

Looking for Money: Without Pacquiao, Jeff Horn Targets Conor McGregor

Jeff Horn Holding Lots of Money
After gaining international recognition defeating Manny Pacquiao in their last match, Jeff Horn looks at getting more money fights.
We know that Manny Pacquiao rejected the proposed rematch between the two pugilists and while Manny isn’t in a hurry going back to the ring, Jeff Horn however is motivated to show the boxing fans that he is not just a one hit star. 
Scheduled to fight Gary Corcoran on December 13, 2017, Australias WBO Welterwight champion will defend the title against Englands Gary Corcoran. Gary is not a bad match up for Jeff, however, the two boxers isn’t really a fight that could generate ticket sales and revenue. 
As early as now, if Manny Pacquiao continues to ignore them, the Australian camp is rumored to be negotiating a fight with Conor McGregor in Boxing. 
Conor McGregor on the other hand had not set any schedule both in MMA and Boxing as of yet. McGregor recently fought against Boxings number one money maker in Floyd Mayweather Jr. The widely advertised event earned McGregor not just his first experience in boxing but also his highest pay day to date. 
Jeff Horn’s camp certainly knows how to make some noise these days, and while we can almost say that this is a PR stunt, the fight which features McGregor will almost always interest the most casual of fans and could generate the kind of money that Jeff Horn is looking for.

LeBron James Showed Support to Conor McGregor After the Fight

LeBron James Shows Respect to Conor McGregor

After being beaten by one of the best boxers in the world, Conor McGregor still got a lot of respect and admiration from a lot of people and other athletes including the best basketball player in the world today, LeBron James.
LeBron James together with her wife was in attendance at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas during the Money Fight of Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather and was first-hand witness to how Conor McGregor, a newbie boxer was able to stand up and showed some fight in him against an opponent that has never lost a fight in boxing.
Mayweather won via TKO in round 10 but Conor McGregor still have won the hearts of many by giving a good fight but let’s not forget that he is also earning around 30 million dollars.

Highlights: Floyd Mayweather Jr Wins via 10th Rd TKO but Conor McGregor Impresses

Floyd delivered as promised and got rid of Conor McGregor via TKO

Although this was one of the most anticipated fight in combat sports history, there were a lot of hesitations and questions from the fans if this would ever live up to the expectations and the hype.
Floyd Mayweather Jr was coming into the fight as the heavy favorite with 49 wins and no defeats under his belt, and while that looks impressive, the fight fans were wary that the fight would be boring as his last mega fights, especially the fight against Manny Pacquiao.
But we were proved wrong as Floyd were true to his promise that he will be more aggressive and will come out forward in the fight.
Conor McGregor, a newbie in boxing but a veteran in fighting was impressive. The two division champ from UFC started the fight fast and furious as he smothered Floyd Mayweather with rapid punches that almost had the boxing fans think that this could be a real fight.
The furious run however faded in the latter rounds as the real boxer took over and dominated each and every succeeding round up until the 10th and final round when Mayweather almost dropped McGregor but was stopped instead by the referee to declare the fight over via TKO in the 10th.

McGregor impressed the boxing Community 

McGregor showed some boxing brilliance early on but was obviously not prepared to go the distance as he was visibly tired and was gassing out against his 40 year old opponent. McGregor showed improved boxing abilities as he threw good combinations and jabs that he doesn’t usually do in MMA. Still had a few MMA moments in the fight like when he was throwing hammer punches and when he was going behind the back of Floyd. It was a good think that he never threw a kick. Generally, Conor has impressed and surprised a lot of people in both the boxing and MMA community as he was able to last and trade punches against Floyd.

Still TBE

In the end, The Best Ever won and proved that he is the better fighter and no outsider can beat him in his own game. The win gives Mayweather his 50th win overcoming Rocky Marciano’s 49 wins with 0 loss.
After the fight, Floyd Mayweather told reporters that this will be his last fight but we all know that money talks and if something viable comes in, we could see Floyd back once again, after all, he is not called Money for nothing.

When asked about his return to the UFC and his purse, he responded that he will talk to his corner about his boxing career but will obviously return to the UFC to fight again.

WBC unveils the “Money Belt” , It’s All About the Money

WBC unveils the “Money Belt”  for Mayweather vs McGregor Match

WBC Mauricio Sulaiman presented the new WBC “Money Belt,” which will be presented the winner of Saturday night’s fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. The Money Belt contains 1.5 kilograms of 24 kt gold, 3360 diamonds, 600 sapphires, 160 emeralds, crocodile leather.
Oh yes! WBC is all in on the fun and could not resist creating a special belt for the momentous occasion that everyone would hate not to love. Of course you as a boxing fan and as an MMA fan would not miss this fight. The best of both worlds will collide this weekend and regardless of what happens, this event has already turned heads and created a lot of money in the process so it would be stupid for WBC not to cash in on this opportunity as well.
WBC had created a number of special belts in the past for major fights like this, so it is not new that WBC is the kind of sanctioning body that innovates and adapts to the trend. You may call them nuts but with millions of people watching this event, it is but wise to add more flavor to it.
