Talks at the moment about a possible Conor McGregor vs Manny Pacquiao boxing match appear to be remaining consistent and certainly legit.
McGregor returns tonight in the UFC against Donald Cerrone but all week the Irish fight star has remained consistent in his wanting to return to the sport of boxing.
