Mayweather Says He Will Fight Pacquiao Again



Mayweather Says He Will Fight Pacquiao Again

They retire, they unretire. The fight once, and if the fight drew money, they do it again.

These are boxing certainties…

You didn’t think he would stay retired, did you?

Floyd Mayweather (50-0; turns 42 in February) and Manny Pacquiao (60-7-2) are looking to do it again, present a sequel to their 2015 sub thriller, which saw Floyd own Pacman. NOW, let's make this clear. Floyd has said this…I have messages into various beings and entities, seeking confirmation. Michael Koncz of Team Pacquiao, when asked to confirm if we will see #MayPac2, answered, “Not right at this minute.”

The Filipino came in with a bad shoulder, he told us after, which should have cancelled the fight. But the promotion was too big to fail, so the show went on.  To the tune of doing 4.6 million buys, and amassing in excess of $400 million in revenue. Floyd was in Tokyo doing some business and Manny and him seemingly made the deal.

This show, which Floyd said would run in December, deets to come, could be a better fight, in theory. Mayweather is 41 and last fought in August 2017, against 0-0 Conor McGregor, the fast talking MMAer.

Manny is at the end of his line, at age 40 in December, but looked decent against Lucas Matthysse, who then retired after getting stopped by Pacman in July in Malaysia.

The two had talked terms of a rematch before…

My question is this—will you watch if it comes to fruition?
