Manny Pacquiao may become MMA fighter
Boxing icon Manny Pacquiao has hinted at a plan for this year, which could include box office fights with Conor McGregor, Errol Spence Jr and Terence Crawford.
The veteran Filipino fighter has not stepped into the ring since capturing the WBA title with a split-decision win over Keith Thurman in Las Vegas in July 2019.
With crowds being kept away, or severely limited, and Pacquiao currently busy with his work as a Senator in the Philippines, his focus is already on return in the coming months.
And the 42-year-old has once again stated that a fight with someone like McGregor is certainly on his agenda for this year.
When asked about the possibility of fighting McGregor, Spence Jr and Crawford, Pacquiao outlined his options and how it would help in fellow countrymen in the process.
“They’re my options, but right now I want to experience fighting an MMA (mixed martial artist),’ Pacquiao told Filipino news outlet BusinessMirror, referring to McGregor. ‘I will also donate a big portion of my income to Filipino COVID-19 victims.’
It’s no secret that Pacquiao wants to face the Irishman, having revealed his desire to face him last September.
