Mayweather announces battle with Pacquiao: “Another 9 figure pay day”
Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Junior plans to enter the ring again. The 41-year-old American used Instagram to announce his possible return. “I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year. Another 9 figure pay day on the way”, says Mayweather in the video.
In December 2017, Mayweather returned to the ring after his retirement after having been challenged by the Irish cage fighter Conor McGregor. According to reports, he received about 275 million dollars for that party he won.
The Filipino Manny Pacquiao (39) made his comeback in July with a victory over knockout against reigning world champion in the WBA, the Argentinian Lucas Matthysse. Pacquiao is the only boxer to win world titles in eight different weight classes. In 2015 he and Mayweather stood together. The American then won the fight that went ahead for the game of the century.
