Eight-division world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao has hinted at a bout with MMA fighter Conor McGregor in 2018.

After the “money” bout earlier this year, when McGregor took on and lost to Floyd Mayweather, Pacquiao posted a message on social media suggesting the Irishman “stay fit” for a potential match-up in the new year.

As yet McGregor has yet to reply to Pacquiao’s offer but the possibility of another attempt to stake his case in the ring may appeal to the reigning UFC lightweight champion.
