We all know that Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather’s match in 2015 was one of the highest-grossing boxing matches of the century. However, the public did not find it entertaining; many were left unimpressed.
For years, boxing fans have called for a rematch, but none of the world champions budged until Pacquiao announced.
Pacquiao made an appearance at the Rizin 45 in Japan. The chief executive of Rizin Nobuyuki Sakakibara asked the boxer, “Can you please fight Floyd Mayweather next year,” the boxer answered, “I’m ready.”
“Thank you so much for inviting me here again. I’m sorry for the last time that we promised we were going to fight this year, but like Sakakibara explained, this year I will see you here in Japan again with a big fight against…”
Pacquiao stopped mid-sentence, and Sakakibara completed it and said, “Floyd Mayweather.”
Pacquiao confirmed that it was Floyd Mayweather and that he was excited about the fight.
Could this be the much-awaited fight of 2024?
