Manny Pacquiao signs with firm handling Conor McGregor

Boxing legend and Senator Manny Pacquiao has signed with Paradigm Sports Management, the same firm handling MMA star Conor McGregor.

Paradigm announced the news on Twitter Wednesday (PHL time).

"We're very excited to announce that Manny Pacquiao has signed with PSM for full service representation!" Paradigm said. "Manny is one of the greatest boxers of all time and we look forward to working with Arnold, Ping and the rest of the team back in Manila to maximize his historic career."

In 2019, the 41-year-old Pacquiao, the current WBA Welterweight Super Champion, had a stellar performance, defeating Adrien Broner and Keith Thurman.

With the exciting news, McGregor himself welcomed Pacquiao in a tweet earlier.

"Welcome to the team Emmanuel," he said, retweeting Paradigm's announcement.

Recently, McGregor revealed that he went "close" to inking a fight with Pacman. The Irish mixed martial artist previously stepped on the boxing ring to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. —Ma. Angelica Garcia/MGP, GMA News
