UFC fighter Dustin Poirier believes that Conor McGregor will use their rematch fight as preparation to face South Paws Manny Pacquiao.McGregor last month announced he would be boxing Pacquiao, only to then accept UFC offer to fight Poirier.The UFC wants the Irishman to return to the octagon on January 23, but Notorious is adamant he will fight before the year’s end.That leaves his proposed mega-fight with Filipino Pacquiao, 41, up in the air.But left-hander Poirier, 31, reckons McGregor wants to fight another southpaw before starting the year with a boxing match against PacMan.He told THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas: “He’s angling to fight Pacquiao right? That was in the news.“I don’t know if the UFC wants him to fight one more time before they allow him to fight Pacquiao or if he just wants to get one more in this year before starting next year with the Pacquiao fight.“But what better way to do it against another southpaw.“I think that might be part of his mindset, maybe he wants to fight a southpaw before he fights another southpaw.“I don’t know what’s going on but I just feel like that’s what the alignment is.”McGregor last fought in January, knocking out 37-year-old Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds.But his plan for a three-fight ‘season’ was dashed due to the coronavirus pandemic.The lack of activity led to McGregor announcing his retirement and later spending the summer holidaying in France and Italy, where he continued to train.He does now appear close to confirming his return with the possibility of securing a second fight this year.And Pacquiao has kept his hopes of facing the former UFC champion alive after agreeing a new deal with management company Paradigm, who also work with McGregor.Manchester United Shola answer to missing out on SanchoPosted on13/10/2020bySports BlogManchester United Shola answer to missing out on SanchoManchester United are hedging their bets that they’ve unearthed the next big thing an exciting forward Shola ShoretireShoretire, turned 16 in February and has already signed a pre-contract to turn professional with the club.He has since rised up the youth ranks and has been named as the answer to missing out on Sancho.Best punters compare the skillful attacker’s game to Nigeria’s legend Jay-Jay Okocha.
