Conor McGregor is in talks to fight Manny Pacquiao in a fight that would take him back to boxing.

The Notorious is already considering his next move just days away from his UFC return against Donald Cerrone.

Should he succeed against ‘Cowboy’ at UFC 246, then the Irishman would like to try his hand once more at the sweet science, having been comprehensively beaten by Floyd Mayweather on debut in 2017.

“The Manny Pacquiao talks have been ongoing,” McGregor said.

“An aspiration of mine now is to win a boxing world title. I think that would be a phenomenal feather in the cap and something I look to achieve in the future. And something I will achieve.”

The 31-year-old would also like another shot at Mayweather, who has been in retirement since their money-spinning bout in 2017.

“I would love that Floyd (Mayweather) rematch,” McGregor added.

“I thought I did, for what was in front of me, very well.

“I thought with some slight adjustments I would have done even better. So I feel now I could take that victory.”
