Conor McGregor hints at Manny Pacquiao fight with cryptic tweet and claims 'I accept' post was NOT for UFC rival Chimaev

CONOR McGREGOR has hinted at a mouthwatering boxing clash against the legendary Manny Pacquiao.

The retired UFC star made an unsuccessful venture into boxing when he was KO'd by the great Floyd Mayweather back in 2017.

But he has regularly teased a return to the noble art – and his latest crytpic tweet adds to that.

The 32-year-old posted on Twitter: "Tinatanggap ko."

The word ‘tinatanggap’ is written in Tagalog, which is the language of the Philippines where Pacquiao is from.

The word translates to "accepted."

It could also suggest that his previous tweet of "I accept" was NOT in fact a response to unbeaten UFC star Khamzat Chimaev calling him out.

According to ESPN, McGregor insisted it had nothing to do with Chimaev but "declined to further elaborate what it was actually referring to."

McGregor announced his retirement in June claiming that he is bored of the combat sport business.

McGregor said in June: “The game just does not excite me, and that's that. All this waiting around. There's nothing happening.

"I'm going through opponent options, and there's nothing really there at the minute. There's nothing that's exciting me.

"I'm a bit bored of the game. I'm just not excited about the game. I don't know if it's no crowd. I don't know what it is. There's just no buzz for me."

However, McGregor hasn’t stopped training hard and has been seen working out at his home in Dublin recently.
