If a match does indeed happen, don’t expect it to take place anytime in 2019. There are many other star-studded fights already scheduled for the year, most notable of them expected to be the Joshua vs Ruiz Jr. rematch! There are also rumors of a Pacquiao vs Mayweather rematch – but that is very unlikely given Mayweather’s age and his time away from the ring.
