Another Mayweather And Pacquiao Match Coming Soon – Even If Both Claim They Are Retired



A rematch of the richest fight in boxing history – between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao – is under discussion even though both men claim they have retired.

Not only that but Amir Khan may get his dream fight with Pacquiao – over three rounds at the Rio Olympics.

Both those tantalising prospects have emerged in the last 24 hours.

Promoter Bob Arum has confirmed that there is a ‘better than 50-50 chance’ of Mayweather-Pacquiao II following the PacMan’s impressive victory in his third fight with Tim Bradley on Saturday night.


That followed talks between Mayweather and the boss of the US television cable network Showtime, Stephen Espinoza, who said: ‘If there is a demand for this fight I believe Floyd will give it strong consideration.

‘It is up to the fans and the media but if people are interested and make their voices heard we will start working on it.’

While Pacquiao maintained he would hang up his gloves after beating Bradley, the Filipino left the door ajar for a return stating: “I might enjoy retired life or I may come back.”


Mayweather meanwhile, has not been in the ring since his victory over Andre Berto in September.

The win continued the pound-for-pound king’s unbeaten record in 49 fights, although there are suggestions he will only truly bow out when he makes it 50.
