  • Manny Pacquiao drops major hint over fight with Conor McGregor

On the other hand, McGregor's career has also been in limbo since he was stopped in the 10th round by Floyd Mayweather in a crossover boxing match last August 27.

Could Manny Pacquiao vs Conor McGregor happen?

While some were also a little confused by the date and holiday on which Pacquiao had chose to call out McGregor.

So, which fighter will get the next opportunity to square off against McGregor?

He posted a picture of the UFC lightweight champion and the caption read: "Happy Thanksgiving!". The reason for this is that McGregor's current priority is to defend his lightweight title, otherwise the UFC will take the belt away from him.

Trump's Thanksgiving activities could include family time, along with golf, at either his Jupiter or West Palm Beach clubs. He says everyone has been talking about the progress that has been made in Afghanistan in recent months.

A bout between the two fight stars, if ever, should be good news for both.

Last month, Dana White spoke with increasing certainty regarding a UFC 219 main event that would feature Conor McGregor and Tony Ferguson.

Irishman McGregor put up a fearless fight, but he couldn't prevent Mayweather from securing a record-breaking 50th career win.

The footage showed McGregor's infamous "knockdown" of Malignaggi in the ring.

Australian promoter Dean Lonergan recently teased the idea of drawing Conor McGregor to Australia. Despite his recent success, Pacquiao hasn't secured a knockout win since 2009, which adds intrigue to his potential bout against McGregor.
