Pacquiao’s Coach: Conor McGregor Doesn’t Deserve to Fight Manny

Conor McGregor is doing his best to stay relevant after suffering a broken leg and loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 on July 10. “The Notorious” has called out everyone and anyone including boxing legend Manny Pacquaio. In fact, McGregor has been angling for a fight with “Pacman” for a long time now.

But it doesn’t seem like it’s on Pacquaio’s radar. If you ask Pacquaio’s strength coach Justin Fortune he will tell you McGregor doesn’t deserve that fight.

“McGregor is not a boxer. It’s not his sport. Manny’s not an MMA guy, it’s not his sport. Put Manny against McGregor in MMA and McGregor destroys Manny. Manny against McGregor in boxing, Manny destroys him.

It’s unfair to match them like that. Conor’s record is 1-5 in his last six fights. Why fight McGregor, McGregor doesn’t deserve to fight Manny, why give McGregor the payday?

What gives him the right to fight Manny? McGregor has loss after loss after loss.

Fight Logan Paul for the money, big guy, deserves it. I like Logan Paul, he’s got some skills.

He’s not wrong here. McGregor’s star is fading and it’s fading rather quickly. Perhaps the best thing for McGregor to do is go fight one of the Paul brothers and take the money and run.
