Prior to his UFC return earlier this year, Conor McGregor revealed that he is interested in taking up a fight against multiple-weight class boxing world champion Manny Pacquiao. It seems that the cross-promotion fight is going to fall in place since Manny Pacquiao has already signed a contract with Conor McGregor’s management firm. Though the details of the contract are yet to be disclosed, Conor McGregor proudly announced Manny Pacquiao’s entry into his firm. The combat sports community has been buzzing with excitement since then.
We’re very excited to announce that Manny Pacquiao has signed with PSM for full service representation! Manny is one of the greatest boxers of all time & we look forward to working with Arnold, Ping and the rest of the team back in Manila to maximize his historic career. 🇵🇭 #GP pic.twitter.com/lrdDCNcGrf— Paradigm Sports Management (@ParadigmSM) February 11, 2020

The Senator of Philippines is equally thrilled about his new contract with Conor McGregor’s management firm. He went on to state in the press release, “I (Manny Pacquiao) am proud to partner with Paradigm Sports Management and am excited for the opportunities that Audie Attar and PSM have to offer. One thing I want everyone to remember is to always think positively. Never think negatively; that is the beginning of your downfall. Everything is possible.”
