Interim WBA champ Jamal James eyeing Manny Pacquiao

The list of names looking to challenge Filipino eight-division boxing world champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao seems to be getting longer, and the latest addition to that list is American welterweight Jamal James.  The 32-year old Minneapolis native owns an impressive 27-1 pro record with 12 of those wins coming via KO.  Last August 8th, James earned his first taste of world championship gold by defeating Thomas Dulorme by unanimous decision to become the interim WBA Welterweight World Champion.  Now, James is looking to drop the 'interim' tag by going after the big names, and right now, the biggest name with a WBA world title is none other than Pacquiao.  "Obviously, I would like to get a shot at Manny Pacquiao, he's got the WBA super title," James told BoxingScene.com.  The 41-year old Pinoy boxing icon captured the WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Championship back in 2018 and then defeated the previously-undefeated Keith Thurman to become the WBA (Super) Welterweight World Champion in 2019.  Right now however, it looks like Pacquiao is eyeing big name fights, and James isn't exactly at that level yet.  James himself understands this, but being the interim champion means he's next in line, so he'll take whoever he can get. "But I know he's such a big name, so it really doesn't matter. I want any of the big name welterweights, we can really put on a good show," James said.  Both James and Pacquiao fight under the Premier Boxing Champions promotion.  Over the last few months, Pacquiao has been discussed a lot by a number of big name welterweights including Terence Crawford, Errol Spence Jr., Mikey Garcia, Thurman, and even junior welterweight Josh Taylor. Most recently, he's been linked to a possible superfight with MMA star Conor McGregor.  For now however, it's unclear when Pacquiao makes his return to the ring, although a 2020 fight isn't out of the realm of possibility. .....»»

Conor McGregor announces engagement to long-time partner Dee Devlin

Irish mixed martial arts superstar "The Notorious" Conor McGregor is in the news once again after revealing his engagement to long-time partner Dee Devlin.          View this post on Instagram                   What a birthday, my future wife !

UFC President Dana White on Manny Pacquiao vs. Conor McGregor rumours: “I don’t care about any of that s**t”

Back in 2017, Irish MMA star Conor McGregor faced undefeated American boxing star Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a big-money superfight, arguably the biggest combat sports event of that year.  McGregor was, at the time, at an all-time high in his UFC career and was coming off a demolition of Eddie Alvarez to become the UFC’s first simultaneous two-division UFC champion.  Looking for even bigger paydays and an even bigger spot in the limelight, McGregor set his sights on Mayweather Jr, and the two ultimately agreed to a 12-round boxing bout.  During the lead-up to the bout, one of the people actively promoting the event was none other than UFC president Dana White. McGregor was the UFC’s biggest star at the time, and his superfight with Mayweather Jr. definitely helped draw eyes onto the world’s largest MMA promotion.  Three years later, McGregor is once again the topic of conversation after some mysterious tweets.  The Irish superstar tweeted the Filipino phrase “Tinatanggap ko”, which means “I accept” in english. Many believe that it’s a not-so-subtle dig at Filipino boxing star and eight-division boxing world champion Manny Pacquiao.  This comes after McGregor and Pacquiao already had an interesting exchange on Twitter a few weeks back.  It looks like “The Notorious” is once again angling for a big-money boxing bout against one of the world’s best. The difference now however, is that he’s retired from the UFC.  Which is why when White was asked about the McGregor-Pacquiao rumours, he had a simple answer: “I don’t care about any of that s**t.”  White’s response is understandable, given that McGregor, who last fought in the UFC in January, defeating Donald Cerrone in just 40 seconds, is supposedly no longer connected to the North American mixed martial arts giant.  Should the Pacquiao-McGregor fight actually come to fruition however, would White remain as unconcerned as he is now? .....»»
