UFC President Dana White took to social media to insist that his prize fighter and current lightweight champion Conor McGregor won't be boxing anyone.

Speculation has increased on whether McGregor would return to the ring to box since he was defeated by Floyd Mayweather in a megafight that pulled in 4.3 million pay-per-view purchases in the US alone.

After Manny Pacquiao stated last week that he had reached out to Conor McGregor about an April boxing match, White responded by stating that he would sue the boxing legend if he had opened talks with the Irish fighter, who is under contract with the UFC.

White once again quashed speculation that McGregor would opt to switch to boxing, this time taking to social media to respond to fans, stating: "He's not Boxing anyone so calm down cry babies".
