Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch possible this year (Videos)


PhilBoxing.com




The long-awaited rematch between the eight-division world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao and the world?s highest-paid athlete Floyd Mayweather could happen within this year.
This possibility surfaced when Mayweather posted a video and message on his Instagram page saying: ?I?m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year. Another 9 figure pay day on the way.?

The message came after Mayweather and Pacquiao reportedly bumped at each other in a concert in Japan earlier.
The Philippine fighting senator has announced earlier that his next fight is tentatively set for Dec. 2, 2018. He is yet to name his next foe.?

At least three major international promoters are presently chasing Pacquiao following his earlier announcement that he is now a free agent.?

Pacquiao has fought under Arum?s Top Rank Promotions for over a decade and his last contract has reportedly expired after his controversial fight against Jeff Horn of Australia.?



Some of the promoters that have shown interest in promoting Pacquiao?s next fight include Bob Arum?s Top Rank, Inc., Eddie Hearn?s Matchroom Boxing and Floyd Mayweather?s Mayweather Promotions.?

Arum wants Pacquiao to face either Vasyl Lomachengko or Terence Crawford for his next fight. Both fighters are under contract with Top Rank.?

Hearn is reported to have offered Amir Khan as Pacquiao?s next foe in a possible blockbuster fight that could happen at the huge Wembley Stadium in England. Hearn is also trying to entice Pacquiao to join Matchroom for his DZAN platform that is slowly gaining ground in the US.?

For his part, Mayweather has offered Pacquiao ?some good competition? with his fighters and mentioned Mikey Garcia as a possible foe.?





Mayweather has been active as lead promoter of his own Mayweather Promotions and having Pacquiao under his wing would certainly boost his image as promoter.?Read More http://philboxing.com/news/story-138522.html

Mayweather is now positioning himself as fighter and promoter at the same time. The news about Mayweather coming out of retirement to face Pacquiao in a rematch comes after the fighting senator severed ties with Arum after over a decade of partnership.

While it is possible to hold the fight before the end of the year as Mayweather said on Instagram, both parties need to agree on the terms and condition of the fight including purse sharing and venue before the end of this month to give both them enough time to train and promote the fight.
