Despite the recent setback suffered by UFC superstar Conor McGregor inside the octagon against Dustin Poirier, the Irish remain confident that his fight against boxing living legend Manny Pacquiao will still happen.
This was after rumours circulated that their fight is now in vain after his first knockout loss.
“There are no damn leg kicks in boxing you know what I mean? I always did want to focus on my MMA career, but I’m also open,” said McGregor was hurt by Poirier’s leg kicks before eventually succumbing with his opponent’s boxing.
“Let us see what happens. I don’t know what will happen. That Manny [Pacquiao] fight was happening. It was as good as done.”
It was indeed as good as done as both camps expressed their interest in the fight. Pacquiao even signed under the same management handling McGregor, Paradigm Sports.
Now their fight is left on the hand of their management and the other opponents are already pushing themselves to catch the attention of the only eight-division world champion.
Meanwhile, Floyd Mayweather Jr. butt into the conversation with McGregor but in a different topic.
Mayweather expressed himself and talked trash regarding the love and hate between him and the UFC fighter.
“see this post and my take on it is that the world knows Con Artist McLoser can steal everything from me and be loved I’m hated. Let just lets you all know that racism still exists,” the unbeaten American wrote on Instagram.
“I know that bum will never be me or be on my level. I’m just built different, my mindset is on another planet, my skills are second to none, I’m a natural-born winner, yes I talk a lot of trash, but every time I back it up! This is what they hate.”
“It’s sad that you can be a poor black kid from the ghetto that has dealt with racism your whole life and work extremely hard to put yourself and your family in a better position, and most of the hate comes from my own people. Connor cannot even win in his own sport, but talking about coming back to boxing to fight Pacquiao. Nobody wants to see that it’s like my leftovers eating leftovers.”
