Floyd Mayweather offered a Manny Pacquiao rematch
Floyd Mayweather has been offered a blockbuster rematch with Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather, 43, got the better of Pacquiao in their 2015 showdown, which was dubbed the ‘The Fight of the
Century’, defeating him via unanimous decision. The former pound for pound king was due to face a YouTuber
opponent on February 20 but had to postpone.
Reports of low sales for the fight and the potential to wait for a crowd, alongside a clash with Top Rank’s world
title card on the same night has all made headway.
Mayweather is yet to confirm anything regarding the event. His team had not visibly begun to push the
promotion of the Pay Per View either.
Pacquiao has been hellbent on exacting revenge on the Moneyman ever since that fateful night at
Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena.
And the Filipino’s manager, Sean Gibbons, has challenged Mayweather to meet him inside the ring again.
Alongside a poster of the rivals, Gibbons tweeted: “Floyd, you can come and get some! Senator Pacquiao
will send you into double retirement.”
Mayweather, who announced his third retirement from boxing in August 2017, is currently gearing up for an
exhibition bout with YouTube star Logan Paul.
But SunSport recently revealed the former four-weight world champion is in talks with UFC superstar Conor
McGregor over a multi-million-pound rematch.
That rematch, however, is in major doubt following McGregor’s UFC 257 defeat to Dustin Poirier.
Mayweather’s clash with Paul is set to take place a fortnight on Saturday, although a venue for the fight has
not yet been announced.
It’s been reported the bout has been postponed to a later date, although neither man has confirmed that’s
Former eight-weight world champion Pacquiao, meanwhile, is also said to be gearing up for an exhibition
of his own. Last week, it was reported the WBA welterweight champion is in talks to face WBC interim
lightweight titleholder, Ryan Garcia.
But Golden Boy Promotions have denied suggestions of Garcia, 22, locking horns with the 42-year-old Pacquiao.
