If you thought Manny Pacquiao's recent teaser about the possibility of fighting Conor McGregor was nothing, well, it looks like that might not be the case.
While the UFC lightweight division remains in limbo, champion Conor McGregor has been fielding multiple challenges from the boxing world. The Filipino icon, who is now a senator in his home country, confirmed his team "initially" reached out to McGregor but "have not yet had any follow-up conversations".
The Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor boxing match in August was ... fine. And when asked his he had already approached McGregor's people for the fight, he said: "Initially, but we have not yet had any follow-up conversations".
"In the Philippines we don't have a problem (producing good boxers)", said Pacquiao, a hero in his home country and also a senator.
Pacquiao, 38, also has a history with Mayweather, having fought him in a hugely hyped, dreadfully boring 2015 bout that reportedly drew a then-record 4.6 million pay-per-view purchases.
According to Jim White of Sky Sports, Pacquiao has confirmed that his camp has opened negotiations with the UFC star about a potential boxing match in April 2018. He lost in 10 rounds.
The fight is likely to take place in April, when the Philippine is due to take a break from his legislative duties after being elected into the Philippine Senate in 2016.
Pacquiao most recently lost his WBO welterweight title to the relatively unheralded Jeff Horn in Brisbane but was set for a rematch with the former schoolteacher, only to pull out due to political commitments.
