LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Floyd “Money”Mayweather says a rematch with Manny Pacquiao will take place this year — in a post on Instagram Saturday, with the caption, “I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year another 9 figure pay day on the way.”
Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) made about $220 million from his May 2015 fight with Pacquiao — and earned a unanimous decision in the win.
The 41-year-old Mayweather has two wins since facing Pacquiao: against Andre Berto in 2015 and his August 2017 knockout of Conor McGregor in the UFC star’s boxing debut.
Pacquiao (60-7-2), 39, last fought in July, defeating Lucas Matthysse to win a secondary welterweight title. The Filipino fighter called out Mayweather after the win.
