Since being easily TKO’d by Floyd Mayweather in August, everyone wants to know what’s next for Conor McGregor.
While the obvious choice would be for him to return to the UFC, he’s left the door open for a potential return to boxing. He’s even said he would definitely defeat Mayweather… if the two had a rematch.
Former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi recently said talks for a fight between them is being discussed. And now, Manny Pacquiao is trolling about a potential fight in 2018.
Pac-Man — who is widely considered to be past his prime — took to social media on Thanksgiving Day to throw his hat into the arena. “#Realboxingmatch” in “#2018″,” he wrote.
“I have many options in MMA. I’m sure there’s options that will present themselves in the boxing game. Right now, I’m a free agent. My name is on the ring,” McGregor said shortly after his fight with Mayweather.
“I’ll see what’s next, but I’m open. I love a good fight, and tonight was a damn good fight. I can’t tell you exactly what’s next, but something will be next.”
While we’d like to see McGregor back in the Octagon, doing what he does best, we’d like to know what you think. Let us know in the comments below.
