It looks like the “fight of the century” between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao may have a sequel.
According to ESPN, “Money” Mayweather told Stephen A. Smith in a text message that he would give “Pacman” a rematch.
The news comes as a surprise, as the undefeated boxer looked to be retiring after fulfilling his fight contract with Showtime. He has one fight left, and it would take place in September. If he decides to do Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Part 2, it would be once his contract is up.
Pacman’s shoulder injury is pretty serious and will keep him out of the ring for at least nine months.
SB Nation reported: “Pacquiao’s injury requires surgery that will keep him out of the ring for nine months to a year. Previously, it was believed Mayweather would retire after one last fight in September, the final bout on his enormous contract with Showtime.
“If Mayweather and Pacquiao were to fight again, it would mean Floyd would have to fight again after that contract. That would open the possibility for Mayweather to finish his career 50-0, surpassing the 49-0 mark set by Rocky Marciano.”
The big pay day and the chance of surpassing Rocky Marciano are definitely motivation for Floyd, but is it all really worth it?
“Money” has more money than he could ever need and going down undefeated will help his future standings in the greatest ever conversation.
The first fight lacked “punch,” with a Mayweather doing his thing and moving around, and a Pacquiao that was easily a step behind.
Aside from that, the casual boxing fan was largely disappointed with the outcome of the fight. Will they be willing to spend another 100 dollars to watch another snoozefest?
