so much Conor McGregor vs. Manny Pacquiao..
With McGregor stopped on strike vs. Dustin Poirier at UFC257, the very informative but competitive laughing idea of eight boxing champions and two UFC champions before taking over the sports icon is It seems dead and buried. Meanwhile, another completely unexpected possibility of Pacquiao returning to the ring surfaced.
Athletic Mike Copinger He reported late Saturday night that a battle between Pacquiao and WBC interim lightweight champion Ryan García was being explored. These are early discussions, nothing more, but still a complete surprise.
Source says @TheAthletic There is a discussion about a potential match between Ryan Garcia and Manny Pacquiao. Preliminary discussion at this stage. Pacquiao, 42, hasn’t played since winning Keith Thurman in July 2019. He remains the champion for £ 147. 135-year-old Garcia

Garcia (21-0, 18 KO) is one of the rising stars of the sport, only 22 years old and has gained considerable support. He defeated Olympic gold medalist and former title challenger Luke Campbell with a bodyshot KO and was the first to be decked in his career early in the match.
Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KO) hasn’t fought since winning the WBA welterweight title away from Keith Thurman in a thrilling split decision in July 2019. 41-year-old Pacquiao swept everything in 2020 during the pandemic, but he is fighting again and fishing to defend his title. Terence Crawford and Mikey Garcia are other names related to the fight against Pac-Man, but nothing has happened.
As Coppinger pointed out, this is strange in terms of weight mismatch, not to mention whether Ryan Garcia should actually fight Pacquiao. He competes in lightweight, which will probably be a two-part jump to challenge Pacquiao’s title. Or, if this develops into something serious, it’s a special catchweight attraction.
