- Plans to fight Pacquiao in December
Floyd Mayweather claims he will come out of retirement to fight Manny Pacquiao in December.
The undefeated American, who last fought just over 12 months ago when he stopped UFC poster boy Conor McGregor, uploaded a video on his Instagram of the pair coming face-to-face, with Mayweather heard shouting: ‘I’m coming back in December’.
And the American added the caption: ‘I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year another 9 figure pay day on the way.’
In the clip, Pacquiao provokes his long-time foe and reminds him he holds the belt, to which Mayweather replies: ‘I will take them from you like I did last time.’
The two modern day greats belatedly fought each other back in May 2015 with Mayweather securing his 48th consecutive win following a unanimous points decision.
Asked recently about a potential rematch, Pacquiao, who has been touted as a potential next opponent for Amir Khan said:
‘If he decides to go back to boxing then that is the time we are going to call the shots. ‘I have the belt, so it’s up to him.
If he wants to come back in boxing, let’s do a second one.
