McGregor is yet to reveal his plans regarding his next fight, though a friendly Instagram post from Manny Pacquiao appears to have left the door open for a sooner-than-expected return to the boxing ring.
Note the hashtag he used.
McGregor infamously took on the undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr.in his professional boxing debut and has yet to step back into the UFC cage ever since entering the boxing ring. Both fighters have had storied careers in their own rights, but have also lost to the same opponent, which would add a certain layer of competitiveness between them.
Manny has previously said that he'd be interested in taking on McGregor too, just not in the Octagon.
Even though Mayweather finished McGregor by technical knockout in the tenth round, the Irishman solidified his reputation as a massive money draw, and re-affirmed that anyone in the world would be able to turn a profit by scheduling a fight with him.
Perhaps such a fight would get Floyd "Money" Mayweather to tune in. Only time will tell.
