MANNY PACQUIAO has sent a video message to UFC legend Conor McGregor and told him: Let's get it on.
Irishman McGregor is set to fight Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in Las Vegas tonight.
'Notorious' waded into the world of boxing when he fought Floyd 'Money' Mayweather in 2017, suffering a tenth-round KO.
And Filipino former world champion Pacman wants a crack at the UFC star.
He wished McGregor good luck ahead of the bout with Cerrone.
He said: "To Conor, good luck in your fight on Saturday night. Do all your best."
Pacquiao's representative Sean Gibbons stood next to him during this exchange on the World Boxing News website draped in an Irish flag.
Gibbons then told McGregor after Pacquiao's words: "And after that if you want to get a proper fight it will be good to see you."
McGregor revealed his camp were in talks with Pacquiao's team about a match-up.
Pacquaio became the first fighter to win major world titles at four different weights: flyweight, featherweight, lightweight and welterweight.
He was named Fighter of the Decade in the 2000s by the Boxing Writers Association of America.
The Filipino fought Mayweather in 2015, losing in a bitterly disappointing fight which broke pay-per-view records.
But the 41-year-old could once again break those pay-per-view records if he gets his wish of a bout with McGregor, 31.
The Irishman's earnings to date are said to be around $115million dollars (£88m).
He made $50m from his clash with Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018.
But his clumsy attempts at pugilism and lack of boxing skills were clear to see from the Mayweather bout.
However, McGregor clearly knows how to attract media attention and a clash with Pacquaio is sure to get plenty of pay-per-view hits.
