A sensational video has surfaced online where Floyd Mayweather met Manny Pacquiao in person at a concert in Japan.
Mayweather in the video can be heard saying he is returning this coming December for a nine figure pay-day and that he will rematch Manny Pacquiao.
The video has already sparked huge debate in the boxing world.
Pacquiao at the moment is looking for a new promoter and TV deal and with Mayweather owning his own promotional company, it would appear the chance meeting with Pacquiao wasn’t so random.
Both men could be seen laughing in front of a group of friends.
If you were a betting man, you’d have to say the fight looks like it will probably happen.
Here’s what boxing fans are saying about a possible rematch between the two:
Cue panic in the Khan household as he has to look for another excuse to dodge Brook now 😀

Why would we want a rematch of the most boring fight we’ve ever seen?

Floyd trolling Khan

Most in the know about boxing will shudder and think no thanks, let’s move on from this. For that reason alone it’ll probably happen as all the casuals still think this is the fight to make and line both their pockets.

No interest in this fight personally, it will still do good numbers tho but not as much as there first fight

Although many appear to be criticizing the fight the reality is that it will still sell a huge number of pay per views.
Certainly not the same amount as before, but definitely enough to make plenty of money for both guys and probably do in the regions of two million US pay per view buys.
Their first fight did 4.6 million pay per view buys in the US.
