The fight between Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor has moved a little closer to reality as Pacquaio officially signed a contract with Paradigm Sports.
The said management is also the one handling the UFC superstar McGregor.
Pacquiao posted on Instagram the paper he signed with Paradigm.
“Excited to have officially partnered with Paradigm Sports.”
“Grateful for the support of my family, team, and fans as I continue my professional boxing journey. Big things are coming! Stay tuned!” He wrote.
Will the talks come in fruition?
Furthermore, is Pacquiao willing to sacrifice his welterweight belt just to fight McGregor?
If the fight with McGregor becomes a reality it will be a non-bearing bout, however, money-wise Pacquiao will earn more for sure. He already said that he will fight McGregor and the earnings will be for helping his fellow Filipinos suffering in the coronavirus pandemic.
Their fight is likely to take place in Dubai in early 2021.
Pocket will surely be filled as they are planning to hold the fight with fans in the venue.
But does the fighting senator have enough time to prepare?
McGregor, meanwhile, showcased that he is already preparing for the match.
With both of them under the same management, negotiation will be much easier.
