Despite the timeline of his return still unknown, Conor McGregor has another fighter he wants to challenge: the legendary boxer Manny Pacquiao.

“The Notorious” made an appearance at the Day of Reckoning event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and revived his plan years ago to fight “PacMan.” During an interview at the event, the MMA fighter made sure to provide a compelling callout to the veteran boxer.

“Tell Manny to grow a set of balls and fight me at a higher weight class,” McGregor said. “Why not? It’s his sport. If he wants me to come down to a smaller weight, I should be able to use more of my weapons. I should be able to kick. I should be able to grapple. Shouldn’t that be fair? … Say it to him. Is he a man or a mouse? Is Manny a man or a mouse?”

The match between the two has been around for years now, with both expressing interest in it. The fighters were once held by the same management, Paradigm Sports, for a short time. This, however, didn’t help in making the fight possible, with Pacquiao making an ugly exit from the company due to a lawsuit that Paradigm won.

“Manny already owes me $8 million via court of law because he signed with my management company and then did not honor his deal,” McGregor said, pertaining to the lawsuit Pacquaio had with Paradigm Sports. “He was brought under the court of law… and he owes me $8 million, yeah? So fight at my weight, and I’ll square that bill away.”

Pacquiao adds to the list of names McGregor is eyeing for his future bouts. However, the official return of the Irish is still unknown. According to recent reports, the fighter will be welcomed by Michael Chandler. This, nonetheless, didn’t stop the MMA superstar from making recent faceoffs with other fighters like Mike Perry and Petr Yan, which Chandler lambasted, saying it is an attempt by The Notorious to remain relevant.
