With an interesting announcement, Manny Pacquiao has signed with Paradigm Sports Management, and they will continue their legendary boxing career with him. This news is interesting in many ways, as many experts immediately concluded that this meant that a Pacquiao – McGregor boxing fight could indeed take place.
PSM announced in a Twitter post that Pacquiao had contracted with them, which McGregor shared and greeted Pac Man on the team. PSM represents several MMA fighters, including Israel’s Adesanya, Cris Cyborg or Conor McGregor. However, Pacquiao is the first professional boxer, so they may not have that much experience on the line, but the Filipino legend still chose them, even if he could choose lots of the promotional companies.

PSM CEO Audie Attar played a big role in the Mayweather – McGregor boxing fight of 2017, maybe next time he will organize a Pacquiao – McGregor boxing fight. PSM has big plans, and they wants big fights in the last few years of Pacquiao’s professional career.
Just a few weeks ago, McGregor said he try again himself in a professional boxing fight. He wants a rematch against Mayweather, but a fight against Manny Pacquiao would be happy. He wants a boxing world title and PacMan just has one, he is the WBA Super champ in welterweight. Although the weight can be a bit problematic, as the Irish are at present much more weight than 147 pounds. But financially, it would obviously be a lucrative business, if not so much as the Mayweather – McGregor match, but it could be a big deal.
