Pacquiao Signs with Paradigm Sports; McGregor Clash a Step Closer?

Filipino icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao announced to his millions of loyal fans that he has officially signed an agreement with sports management agency Paradigm Sports, which is based in Irvine, California.

MMA stars Conor McGregor and Cris Cyborg are among the athletes represented by Paradigm Sports.

The announcement could be a convenient fact that might facilitate a possible blockbuster battle between Pacquiao and McGregor, two of the planet’s most popular names in combat sports.

McGregor, 32, recently announced on social media that he intends to fight the charismatic eight division world champion in a boxing contest somewhere in the Middle East. 

Pacquiao's team confirmed the discussions, but cautioned that a fight with McGregor was far from a done deal.

McGregor made his pro boxing debut in August of 2017, when he was stopped in ten rounds by Floyd Mayweather. After the loss, McGregor returned to the UFC.

Earlier this year, McGregor announced his retirement from MMA and expressed his desire to return to boxing.

Pacquiao, who holds the WBA's welterweight title, has been out of the ring since July of 2019 - with the inactivity mainly due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Grateful for the support of my family, team, and fans as I continue my professional boxing journey,” shared Pacquiao, as he announced the deal with Paradigm Sports.

“Big things coming! Stay tuned.”

Since its for charity partially. Would he take it easy on Connor like Floyd or just blast him out of there in 2 rounds?

[QUOTE=TMLT87;20811369]Harsh truth of that is, nobody will care outside of the boxing bubble anyway. You need established names like Pac, Floyd and Canelo to get you that initial widespread exposure and make you a star. Look how long Floyd and…
