May­weather says he and Pacquiao will fight in De­cem­ber

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Floyd May­weather Jr. says he’s com­ing out of re­tire­ment again to fight Manny Pacquiao for a sec­ond time in De­cem­ber.

May­weather posted a video on In­sta­gram early Satur­day that showed him and Pacquiao to­gether, re­port­edly in Ja­pan, jaw­ing at each other over a pos­si­ble sec­ond fight.

“I’m com­ing back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year,” May­weather said. “An­other nine-fig­ure pay day on the way.”

Whether the fight ac­tu­ally hap­pens re­mains to be seen. There are no pro­mo­tional bar­ri­ers be­tween the two men, be­cause May­weather pro­motes him­self and Pacquiao is a box­ing free agent.

Odd­s­mak­ers at the West­gate Las Ve­gas Su­per­book im­me­di­ately made May­weather a 2-1 fa­vorite.
