Ahead of his second pro boxing bout, McGregor, 32, shared pictures of what appears to be a sparring as well as a strength and conditioning session.

He captioned the post: “A good days work today on the program.”

McGregor made his boxing debut in 2017, losing to Floyd Mayweather, 43, in the second richest fight of all time.

And his return to the ring is targeted for December or January.

Pacquiao’s long-time trainer Freddie Roach reacted to the news by insisting the Filipino icon would beat McGregor easier than he did against Ricky Hatton.

Hatton was brutally knocked out by PacMan in round two of their 2008 world title fight.

McGregor responded to Roach’s comments in an Instagram post, where he revealed regret for not breaking the rules against Mayweather by using an MMA strike on the American legend.
