“Good luck, Conor…Do all your best,” said Pacquiao in a video posted by his right-hand man Sean Gibbons.
McGregor is facing Donald Cerrone at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, his first foray into battle in 15 months.
There have been talks the past few days about a Pacquiao-McGregor showdown in a boxing ring the past few days with Gibbons teasing the public by coming up with a faux fight poster featuring the two supposed to be slugging it out at the soon-to-be-completed Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
Pacquiao hasn’t fought since dealing Keith Thurman his first loss in July last year.
In August 2017, McGregor lost on a stoppage to Floyd Mayweather. (Nick Giongco)
