Manny Pacquiao Calls Out Floyd Mayweather For Rematch

He fought across five weight classes and his box office drawing power dwarfs all other boxers in any division.

Fresh off the win against Lucas Matthysse this past weekend in Kuala Lumpur, Manny Pacquiao told reporters he would again square off against Floyd Mayweather, if the latter "wants to come back in boxing".

Mayweather is presumed to be retired after he clashed with UFC's Conor McGregor and put his record at 50-0. "I have the belt, so it's up to him". The Pac Man is leaving the door open for a possible rematch against Floyd Mayweather, whom he lost to due to a unanimous decision three years ago in Las Vegas, according to ESPN 5.

But what about now with a 39-year-old Pacquiao and 41-year-old Mayweather?

Sadly for Pacquiao, though, the American has appeared to rule out making another return by finally responding to claims they could renew their rivalry in the ring.

"I warned, he had excuses, but congrats on the victory Manny Pacquiao, keep up the good work".

While Pacquiao has been linked with fights against Terence Crawford and Vasyl Lomachenko, when comparing their overall star and fame compared to Amir Khan, the Khan fight would make more financial sense for Pacquiao as a bigger fight worldwide. "You gotta realize this, I made smart investments". "Like I said, short-term sacrifices, long-term rewards".

The Briton returned to the ring in April after a two-year absence and stopped Phil Lo Greco in 39 seconds, while Lomachenko won by technical KO against Jorge Linares in May to secure the WBA Super Lightweight title.
