The Irishman was one of the first personalities to recognize Pacquiao's new contract after tweeting, "Welcome to the team Emmanuel".

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.

Manny Pacquiao signs with same agency that represents Conor McGregor

Prior to signing with his new management team, Pacquiao had been teasing a possible crossover fight with McGregor after he previously faced Floyd Mayweather in a huge boxing match that netted both fighters nine-figure paydays. Although Pacquiao is now under the Paradigm banner, his personal team is supposed to stay generally in tact.

Paradigm Sports Management announced on Tuesday that Pacquiao has signed with them to solidify the final years of his boxing career.

"I'm honored to have the opportunity not only to maximize Manny's boxing career but to help him continue to leave a legacy he is proud of through the lens of business and sport", Attar said in a statement. Never think negatively; that is the beginning of your downfall.

The clash went down as one of the most lucrative in boxing history, and now Pacquiao is said to be keen for a slice of the action. Because of this, the possibility of the Irish star meeting the eight-division world champion is now gaining momentum.

We still await what fight a Hall of Famer to be, Manny Pacquiao, will have next? McGregor's only fight with the 10-ounce gloves was in August 2017, when he lost by stoppage to Floyd Mayweather Jr. The Filipino icon has found himself in the midst of a career resurgence since besting Adrien Broner and Keith Thurman past year.

"Incredibly proud to announce that @ParadigmSM is officially representing Manny Pacquiao".

Whilst the 31-year-old has claimed he plans to fight in UFC three times in 2020 he hasn't been able to get away from rumours of a rematch with Mayweather. That does not, however, mean that either man won't end up facing an opponent from his respective sport.
