Manny Pacquiao claims McGregor post was just a 'holiday greeting'
"Pagbati lang, kasi holiday season eh."
Manny Pacquiao has become quite the master of mystery, hasn't he?
Last week, the eight-division world champion sent out a post on social media, seemingly calling out UFC lightweight champion and Irish sensation Conor McGregor for a '#realboxingmatch'
Of course, the little Thanksgiving greeting sent the sports world into a bit of a frenzy, all speculating whether or not a Pacquiao-McGregor superfight was in the works.
Well, according to the man himself, the post was simply just that, a holiday greeting, or so he says.
After arriving in Manila, Pacquiao got to talk to ABS-CBN's Dyan Castillejo to clear things up, so to say.
"Pagbati lang, sa holiday season." Pacquiao said, with a devilish grin.
Pacquiao, who says he has never met McGregor before, insists that the post was just a greeting for the holidays.
What say you, Kapamilya?
Is Manny telling the truth, or is he up to something?
