Boxing promoter Bob Arum said WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao will fight again in the spring and adds the chances of a rematch with Floyd Mayweather are at "75 percent."
As Manny Pacquiao prepares to battle Adrien Broner this weekend, many speculate Floyd Mayweather is in line as his next opponent. Pacquiao joined SI Now to share his thoughts on the potential superfight.
Floyd Mayweather took the first shot, saying his name is always attached whenever the media mentions Manny Pacquiao’s name. Manny responded back and hash-tagged #MayPac2. SI Now hosts Robin Lundberg and Ryan Asselta look in the crystal ball and predict if this social beef is the first step toward a rematch.
Manny Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, still laments that Pacquiao was injured in his first fight with Floyd Mayweather and wants a rematch. Manny wishes Floyd goodwill in retirement, but says he'd be open to a rematch if Mayweather was willing to come back to boxing.
Manny Pacquiao will come out of retirement to fight in Las Vegas on Nov. 5, according to promoter Bob Arum.
