Conor McGregor 'boxing Manny Pacquiao next in Middle East' as UFC legend sensationally claims he is back from retirement

CONOR McGREGOR has sensationally claimed he is going to fight Manny Pacquiao in a boxing match in the Middle East.

The UFC legend – who lost to 50-0 king Floyd Mayweather in August 2017 – released a flurry of tweets on Friday night.

In them, he showed private Instagram messages to UFC boss Dana White.

McGregor was trying to arrange a return fight in MMA following his retirement announcement in June – his third in four years.

But the talks apparently fizzled out and McGregor – recently urged to return to the octagon by rival Justin Gaethje – later tweeted: "Anyway all water under the bridge who gives a fook. I’m boxing Manny Pacquiao next in the Middle East."
