Manny Pacquiao has spoken to many members of the press at the airport a short time ago and has given an update on Mayweather vs Pacquiao 2 among other things.
Both Mayweather and Pacquiao announced on social media at the weekend that they will rematch with Mayweather saying he is coming back for a nine figure pay-day this year against Pacquiao.
With December mentioned as the main date likely.
Speaking to the press a short time ago, Pacquiao said on the fight:
“It is an ongoing negotiation.”
“Within this week we will finalize the fight with Mayweather or someone else.”
On who will be training him, it will be Buboy Fernandez and not Freddie Roach:
If the Mayweather fight is not confirmed this week he said the other two fights he’s looking at are:
“Amir Khan, Broner.”
He emphasized either way he will have a fight confirmed:
Within the week.
By all accounts that fight will be against Floyd Mayweather with Mayweather’s friend and CEO of his promotional company Leonard Ellerbe also saying at the weekend that Mayweather will fight Pacquiao next.
This has all come about rather quickly but both Mayweather and Pacquiao appear to be intent on moving fast in making this rematch.
Unlike the first fight which literally took years to make.
