MMA coach Manny Pacquiao: ‘Why should you lower your own prices and enrich a nonsense guy like Conor?’
Despite the fact that both of this MMA players belong to the same management company, it seems that Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao are very difficult to have a match because of a perspective which the legendary Filipino legend is placing on Conor.
In early 2020, Manny Pacquiao signed a contract with Paradigm Sports Management – the management company Conor McGregor. Immediately, people thought that the UFC superstar and the Philippine boxing legend could discuss a match.
In early June, Conor announced to say goodbye to MMA. Although he was not officially excluded from the UFC game, the temporary departure from the octagonal boxing arena has made the rumors of Conor returning to the Boxing floor even more intense.
But that is just one-sided news from MMA circles or Conor fans. On the contrary, Manny Pacquiao, typically boss Bob Arum, denied this possibility. Recently, Manny’s physical coach, Justin Fortune, once again protested to let the match happen.
“Why should we help this guy get richer?” – Coach Fortune replies to MMAJunkie. “And of course this battle is not helping Pacquiao especially his legacy. Here is my opinion: Manny was the greatest martial artist in history when he retired, because no one has done the same feat as he did on the boxing floor. “
“Then why should it be so damaging to one’s heritage just for a nonsense guy like Conor?” – Coach Jusstin Fortune emphasized.
On August 26, 2017, three years ago, Conor entered the match “MMA vs.” Boxing ”historic with Floyd Mayweather Jr. With the huge amount of money earned after the match, the audience continuously imagined about the rematch scenarios of Floyd, on Pacquiao station, hoping to witness another blockbuster “money fight”.
