  • Dana White shoots dead Manny Pacquiao's claims he has held talks with Conor McGregor

However, those talks appeared to break down when it emerged that Diaz was looking to leverage the record-breaking pay-per-view numbers his two fights with Conor McGregor generated a year ago by demanding a $15 million payout for his next fight.

Instead, it sounds as if Diaz wants to follow UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor into the world of boxing, as he indicated with his "on to the next sport for now" comment with a pair of boxing gloves behind it.

"It is OK with both of us", Pacquiao said when asked about reports he was seeking a match with McGregor who lost a megabucks boxing match in August against the unbeaten Floyd Mayweather. Stay fit my friend.

After all, the money he received after suffering a defeat against Floyd Mayweather Jr in his debut boxing bout is a huge motivation anyday to live life on a completely different level! McGregor was clearly out of his element but hung on for 10 rounds before they stopped it.

The fight is likely to take place in April, when the Philippine is due to take a break from his legislative duties after being elected into the Philippine Senate in 2016.

However, he also stressed that McGregor is only one of a few possible opponents when he ends his ring absence next year.
