Extensive talks had taken place last year and earlier this year regarding a possible Manny Pacquiao vs Conor McGregor boxing match taking place.

For now it is on hold.

McGregor lost in the first round tonight in the UFC and suffered defeat in a rematch.

Also suffering a brutal injury to his ankle that will likely sideline him for some time.

Pacquiao reacted to what he saw by saying:

Pacquiao is currently training for a huge fight next month with Errol Spence in Las Vegas.

Win, lose or draw it is still very possible down the line him and McGregor could have that boxing match.

First thing is first though for Pacquiao, Errol Spence.

One of the best pound for pound fighters on Earth today.

He has his hands full and a lot on his plate with that for now.

The McGregor fight would just represent a big pay day opportunity.

Like it would for many boxers in fairness, given the star power of McGregor.
