Manny Pacquiao quietly revealed last week while in attendance for Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou that he’s going to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. next month, if all goes well, of course. The would-be rematch is going to be an exhibition, but nothing is official as of now.
Pacquiao, 44, told Fight Hub TV he is still training and eager to get back inside the ring. The fight against Mayweather would happen in Japan with Japanese fight promotion RIZIN.
“I’m still active, I’m an active guy, I’m actively training. I have an exhibition match this coming December in Japan,” Pacquiao revealed. “We’re working on it, the opponent. We’re working with Mayweather. Yes [a Mayweather fight].”
If Mayweather does not agree to fight Pacquiao, who would even unretire in hopes of marring Money’s undefeated record, the Philipino fighter is likely going to have a backup opponent.
Manny Pacquiao calls out Gervonta Davis
Pacquiao is also working on representing The Philippines at the 2024 Olympics if the committee removes the age limit.
He also called out Gervonta Davis. Pacquiao would fight “Tank” if it happens at welterweight.
“Davis is a good fighter, a good fighter,” Pacquiao said. “If he wants [to] and comes up to 147, then we can fight. 145, maybe. It’s not a problem for me, I’m an experienced fighter.”
