— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) September 25, 2020
The McGregor-Pacquiao boxing match will allegedly take place in December or January, said McGregor’s manager, Audie Attar, who represents both fighters. The Middle East is one of a few locations being discussed to host the fight, he added.
Attar said that the specific weight for this proposed bout hasn’t been determined yet. He is confident though that the fight will happen in the coming months.
After the Pacquiao fight, Attar said McGregor is set to return to the UFC in 2021.
