One of Floyd Mayweather’s best friends and an almost constant by his side in his professional boxing career has warned his friend ahead of an expected Mayweather vs Pacquiao 2 event.

Nate Jones is known for having been an assistant trainer to Mayweather for large periods of his pro career.

Largely due to wearing the body belt in the gym that he allowed Mayweather to pound away on to perfect his body shots.

Something Jones has mentioned in the past did make him urinate blood from time to time.

Outside of his coaching capacity with Floyd he’s also one of his close friends.

So when he says a rematch with Pacquiao will probably happen next year – expect it to.

Speaking to Fight Hype Jones said:

“I do believe its going to happen (Mayweather vs Pacquiao 2). I think he’s still got it. He’s still got one or two more in him. After this it should be it. He shouldn’t fight past 2019.”

He added:

“It’s going to be more action (in the rematch). There’s a possibility that someone can get knocked out in this fight. Floyd is going to have to be careful because Pacquiao has been around. Pacquiao is seasoned. He’s been in the ring before so now he knows some of the tricks Floyd has. The second time he (Manny) will be more prepared. A little more dangerous.”

He went on to reaffirm:

“Yes. I think (Mayweather vs Pacquiao 2) it is going to happen.”

There you have it.
