Dana White: 'I will be suing Manny Pacquiao and whoever's representing him'

UFC Interim Champ Tony Ferguson Calls Out Conor McGregor

It looks like Manny Pacquiao is setting his eyes on opponents outside the boxing ring.

"So, if he applied, I would see no reason why we wouldn't license him".

Ever since fellow UFC superstar Conor McGregor was granted a license to box, Diaz has been teasing a similar move to pursue some high profile opportunities.

There is also the issue that White and Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum have a very frosty relationship which has lasted for many years.

However, a boxing match with Pacquiao has the potential of generating millions of dollars in revenue for both fighters as Pacquiao is still one of the biggest boxing stars in the world.

When asked by AFP whether the talks with McGregor's representatives are true, Pacquiao said, "Initially, but we have not yet had any follow-up conversations".

It was expected that McGregor would head back into the Octagon after losing his boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather back in August. He is on a 10-fight win streak that also includes triumphs over former champion Rafael dos Anjos, Edson Barboza, Josh Thomson and Abel Trujillo.

"That would be weird because he's under contract with us", said White.

Certainly in boxing, you never say never. "If that's true, I will be suing Manny Pacquiao and whoever's representing him". But while McGregor has risen even further since then, Diaz's fighting future has remained unclear due to a likely contract dispute with the UFC, with the only news being occasional social media back-and-forth between the star and promotional President Dana White.

This isn't the first time McGregor is going to fight with a boxer inside the ring.

"UFC offered me title fight in any weight class", Diaz said in his Tweet.

The Boxing news and views website reported that Pacquiao's promoter confirmed that a member of his team had contacted McGregor a couple of months ago.
