It looks like Manny Pacquiao will now be managed by the same people that manage MMA superstar Conor McGregor. 

Pacquiao, the eight-division world champion and boxing legend from the Philippines, has signed with Paradigm Sports Management. 

The 41-year old Pacquiao is the current reigning WBA (Super) Welterweight World Champion and is coming off a big win over the previously-undefeated Keith Thurman back in 2019. 

Founded by Audie Attar, Paradigm Sports is an up-and-coming sports management firm that handles a number of American Football players as well as high-profile mixed martial artists. Their list of clientele include two-division MMA champion Conor McGregor, multiple-promotion world champion Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino, reigning UFC Middleweight World Champion Israel Adesanya, former UFC Middleweight World Champion Michael Bisping, Bellator contender Michael Page, and UFC contender Stephen Thompson just to name a few. 

Of course, one of the very first to welcome Pacquiao to the Paradigm family was none other than McGregor himself, who has publicly stated that he has been seriously considering a boxing bout with Pacquiao. McGregor is coming off a triumphant return to MMA with a 40-second demolition of top contender Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 back in January.
