Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao is a match that happened in May 2015 but continues to be talked about today! While it isn’t as big a deal as Ali vs Frazier, the two did manage to create a huge impact and the Pac Man was a legit threat to Mayweather’s undefeated streak. A rematch has been rumored for a long time – and in recent comments to TMZ, Mayweather Sr. (Floyd’s father) re-ignited these rumors.
Let us take a closer look at Mayweather vs Pacquiao II and see if it can really happen in 2019 or 2020.
So Weasel and I were rewatching the old Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight and Ol' Weaz' asked "How DO you beat Floyd Mayweather?" And I told him. "It's simple, you just tell him that he loses if he doesn't read the rule book."

Floyd Mayweather Sr. Wants Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao II
Mayweather Sr is a former boxer himself and a legendary trainer. Floyd Mayweather Jr, his son, holds a world record of 50-0. 50 wins and no losses in his professional boxing career. When Jr. retired after his last fight with Conor McGregor, many wondered if a Pacquiao rematch was on the cards. However, over the years he made it clear that this won’t happen.
Mayweather Sr., on the other hand, says that if a rematch does take place – his son is again going to win! Like all fathers, Sr. trusts ‘The Money’ to be the best boxer in the world and is confident of his son winning the match.
What’s Next for Mayweather and Pacquiao?
For Mayweather Jr. a return is out of the question. Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao is a rematch a lot of people want but no one will get! Pacquiao is looking for his next challenger – and will most likely retire in 2020.
