On a night when the combat sports world is focused on Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarez, Floyd Mayweather has created headlines.
Mayweather, using social media, put out a video in which he claims to be setting up a rematch between himself and Manny Pacquiao this year.
“I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year,” Mayweather wrote. “Another 9 figure pay day on the way.”
This comes as others are reporting a possible rematch between the retired former champion and UFC fighter Conor McGregor.
Mayweather returned last year, scoring his 50th career win in 50 fights vs. McGregor.
