Another day, another boxer calling out UFC champ Conor McGregor


Dann StuppIt seems a notable boxer is stumping for a fight with Conor McGregor nearly everyday – even the holidays.

The latest? Manny Pacquiao today posted a not-so-cryptic Instagram post directed at the UFC lightweight champion.

Granted, neither fighter is American, so U.S. Thanksgiving may not mean a whole lot to either one of them. Still, it didn’t stop Pacquiao (59-7-2), a 38-year-old former eight-division boxing champion and current Filipono politician, from wishing McGregor a happy holiday.

However, the post also included “#realboxingmatch #2018” and the suggestion to “Stay fit my friend” (via Instagram):

Happy Thanksgiving! Stay fit my friend. #realboxingmatch #2018 @thenotoriousmma

Pacquiao announced a short-lived retirement in 2016 but returned in July for a decision loss to Jeff Horn.

McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC, 0-1 boxing) is coming off his boxing pro debut in August, when he suffered a 10th-round TKO defeat to Floyd Mayweather. However, McGregor, who hasn’t been booked for a return to the UFC octagon, likely made a nine-figure payday for the PPV blockbuster.

It’s led to callouts from fighters in all corners of the combat-sports world, including a recent one from Oscar De La Hoya (39-6), an Olympic gold medalist who later became one of boxing’s big stars before his 2008 retirement.
