Further, the odds also increased after Pac Man signed up with Paradigm SM, the same management team that represents Notorious. Conor McGregor is a big name in the mixed martial arts (MMA) field but he only played one pro boxing game, where he lost to Floyd Mayweather via a 10th-round TKO in 2017.

Despite that, McGregor has many times challenged Manny Pacquiao and the Filipino legend has also responded well. Audie Attar, the manager of Conor McGregor has said that he could soon return to the boxing ring and fighting Manny Pacquiao will always be a possibility. The only reason why Manny Pacquiao vs Conor McGregor might not happen soon is that the Notorious is more focused on his MMA career.
Manny Pacquiao on Floyd Mayweather and his Retirement
Conor McGregor vs Manny Pacquiao match might happen at some point in the future, but it is not the priority for any of the boxers. The Filipino fighter is already 41 years old and he might be looking to fighting some boxing welterweight champions before he retires in a few years. Errol Spence Jr., Terence Crawford, Danny Garcia, and Mikey Garcia are some of the younger champs that have been challenging the Pac Man for a fight.
Floyd Mayweather has advised the young boxers to fight each other and not to chase the old man (Manny Pacquiao). It led to Pacquiao getting a bit angry and replying to Mayweather that the undefeated American boxer is just jealous of his popularity and envious that he has been training with no plans to retire.
