Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather have already marked their names in the boxing history. All their professional matches earned the gross amount of hundred million dollars which only proved how enthusiasts are eager to watch them in their respective bouts. Of course, a lot of these boxing fans would hope to see them again on a rematch. Apparently, there is a negotiation for their second fight. Read on.
According to a report from AFP as cited by Yahoo!, Pacquiao himself confirmed there is an ongoing talk with Mayweather for the possible last match in the Filipino boxer’s career. He also dropped the name of Amir Khan as the other fighter whom he is negotiating with for this final bout.
If plans will push through, the boxing event will take place either in March or April. He is determined for this match.
“I will fight anybody, anywhere. I am going to fight probably before the election. The election is coming next year, May, and before that I will probably have one fight.” Pacquiao said.
He has expressed interest to run for a higher position in the 2016 Philippine national election. As of the present, he is a district congressman representative.
Mayweather-Pacquaio match is one of the biggest boxing events in the current decade. Are the promoters ready for this rematch?
However, even if the Filipino fighter revealed the negotiations, Bob Arum appears to have no clues about it at all. In an interview he did for Yahoo, he said, “I have no idea what he’s talking about. He said it, not me. But I have had no talks with anyone about that. None. Zero. Not one. Mayweather is retired and I take him at his word.”
For boxing fans out there, do you think the rematch must happen? Or Manny Pacquaio should just face another opponent for his one last fight?
