Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao went head to head in May 2015 in a match known as ‘Battle of the Century’. While Mayweather won the match, fans were left wanting for more. A second round has been rumoured for a very long time now. However, it appears to be closer to happening now more than ever before.
Reportedly, Mayweather has denied Pacquiao this rematch more than once. However, given the right contract, we might see Floyd “the money” Mayweather back in action against his greatest foe for Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao II.
Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao: Will it Really Happen?
As of this writing, nothing can be said about Mayweather vs Pacquiao II actually happening. The word is that Pacquiao is in for this, however, Mayweather hasn’t shown much interest in this match.
While Mayweather has been irregular but still active, even taking on UFC Champion Connor McGregor in a boxing match last year, Pacquiao has since been a Senator in The Philippines, also boxing sporadically. Given that both the men are now over 40, if this match is going to happen, an announcement should be made sometime this year.
