Think Conor McGregor being sparred into a TKO in front of millions of viewers wasn’t damaging enough to stop him entering the squared circle ever again? Wrong.
If another boxer gets his wishes, the Irishman might be returning to the boxing world before the year’s out.
Yep, Aussie fighter Jeff Horn and his camp are looking to take on McGregor in November after Manny Pacquiao dropped out of the two’s proposed rematch.
Horn dethroned Pacquiao back in July in his native Australia for the WBO welterweight world title.
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told Bloody Elbow:
Frankly, I think he’s [Pacquiao] a bit too scared to come and face Jeff Horn.
For Manny not to reappear, really says to me that he knows Jeff is the world champion.
If we could get McGregor, that would be great.

I suppose it would, if he were to pursue a total crossover to boxing from MMA, but if he’s dabbling, it’s gonna be useless every trying to top the hype of his showdown against Floyd Mayweather on August 26.
What do you think?
