Paradigm Sports negotiating fights for Pacquiao—business manager

Paradigm Sports Management is now exploring fight opportunities for eight-division champion Manny Pacquiao.

The boxing legend recently signed with the firm, which also handles mixed martial artist star Conor McGregor.

"Manny is now represented by Paradigm Sports Management, who are actively negotiating his future fight options," Pacman's business manager Arnold Vegafria said.

A Pacquiao and McGregor fight is a possibility as the Irish MMA star said his camp went close to inking a deal with Pacman a few weeks before the announcement of his partnership with Paradigm Sports. 

"I would be open to other boxing bouts. You know, Manny... We're actually close to signing Manny," McGregor said in an interview on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show.

"Me and Manny. There's been talks about the Manny fight," he said. "There was an offer made on that, yeah. Just not yet, not yet."

McGregor stepped on the ring to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2017 and lost via technical knockout in the 10th round. —MGP, GMA News
