Pacquiao earlier said he has opened talks to fight McGregor when he takes a break from his legislative duties in April. "A real fight", McGregor said while signing autographs.

But nearly immediately after that, UFC President Dana White would threaten to sue Pacquiao's camp.

Despite many labelling the fight a mis-match, however, the fighters had hoped the bout would become the richest in the sport's history. Only one other fight - Mayweather's 2015 bout with Pacquiao - has ever drawn more, racking up 4.6 million buys.

Showtime added that global revenues, including ticket sales, sponsorship and worldwide distribution, exceeded $600m (£450.42m).

As WBC minimumweight champion Wanheng Menayothin (49-0) closes on his flawless 50-0 record, Mayweather may well get itchy knuckles to fight again, although the only way to stave off the Thai scrapper would be to once again trade blows in a boxing ring. Then there were McGregor-Pacquiao murmurs.

"I'd like to see him come over to our side and have a knock. Style over to my side and earn our respect now".
