Conor McGregor's manager Audie Attar has teased a boxing match between his two clients, McGregor and legendary boxer Manny Pacquiao in 2021 — this and much more on Tuesday's social media roundup.
Conor McGregor vs Manny Pacquiao "inevitable for 2021."
For a while now since Conor McGregor made his boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather, there has been a lot of talk around a potential fight between McGregor and legendary boxer Manny Pacquiao. Well, there is more talk of a potential fight between the two now the fighters' manager came out and said that a fight between McGregor and Pacquiao is "inevitable for 2021." Audie Attar, who manages both McGregor and Pacquiao has fueled more rumors that a fight could happen in 2021.
"Both fighters want it, that’s the key," Attar told themaclife.com. "You can’t make something happen or orchestrate it or choreograph it – which is the buzzword of this interview – you can’t fake that. If one side wants it and the other doesn’t, it’s not going to happen. But when both fighters want that fight to happen, why wouldn’t it happen? If the fans want to see it – that almost guarantees that it’s going to happen, right? As there’s enough interest to develop something there."
Pacquiao then fueled more rumors by coming out and saying to ibtimes.com that he wants "to experience fighting an MMA fighter".
Could McGregor and Pacquiao really fight in 2021 or do you believe it is all just hype?
