In some really left field news this whole Conor McGregor vs Manny Pacquiao boxing match idea continues to grow legs.

Indeed, both McGregor himself is on record of saying he’d like the fight and one of his goals is to become a world champion in boxing.

With Pacquiao being a boxing world champion at this time it could make a lot of sense at some point.
