Conor McGregor says he is coming out of retirement for a boxing fight with Manny Pacquiao in the Middle East.
The former two-weight UFC champion, 32, retired from fighting in June – for the third time in four years.
He returned to face Floyd Mayweather in his first professional boxing match in 2017 and now says he will meet eight-weight world champion Pacquiao, 41.
“It will be a true honour to have faced two of the greatest boxers of the modern era,” the Irishman tweeted.
Earlier on Thursday, McGregor posted a video on Instagram of himself shadow boxing in a ring.
McGregor’s last fight was a win over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 in January, which gave him a 22-4 record in mixed martial arts. (BBC)
