McGregor and Pacquiao have the same management since the latter signed with the former’s Paradigm Sports Management.
Pacquiao, 41, has not fought in over a year. He beat Keith Thurman last July 20, 2019 via a split decision.
McGregor, meanwhile, last fought in UFC 246 where he beat Donald Cerrone in the 1st round.
Boxing-wise, McGregor’s only pro bout remains a TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Pacquiao is the only 8-division world boxing champion and is regarded as one of the greatest fighters ever.
McGregor is a two-division UFC champion.
