Mayweather says he and Pacquiao will fight in December
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.
