42-year-old Floyd Mayweather is currently in the Philippines and is understood to be taking in a vacation but also there to talk directly to Manny Pacquiao about a possible rematch in the boxing ring later this year.
Mayweather had appeared on camera with Pacquiao in Japan last year at a concert in Tokyo where he intimated he wanted to make the rematch, as did Pacquiao, and the pair between them had everyone thinking that they really were interested in erasing their embarrassment of a fight back in 2015 with one final fight to set the record straight and leave no excuses on the table.
In the end however it didn’t happen and Floyd fought a three round (non professional) exhibition bout against a Japanese kickboxing world champion by the name of Tenshin Nasukawa instead.
The bout took place on New Year’s Eve just gone in Tokyo and Mayweather won easily in the very first round.
Floyd has now taken to his Instagram account to post close-up, ringside footage of the short but brutal exhibition:
Mayweather has also posted a number of videos showing him working out in the boxing gym once again over the last 24 hours.
This has lead to many thinking that in fact he will come back for one final nine-figure pay day in the professional boxing ring.
Most likely against old foe Manny Pacquiao:
Aside from boxing though, he’s also being concentrating on more serious endeavours (joke).
Namely, playing the popular game ‘Wack A Mole’:
Time will tell how serious this latest trip and meeting with Pacquiao is but both guys know that one another represents their last big pay day in the sport before they do finally decide to officially retire and call it quits.
Expect some developments later today or this evening.
