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. 


Pacquiao says his post greeting MMA Superstar Conor Mcgregor was just that a Thanksgiving greeting .
