Floyd Mayweather Sr. claimed that he is pretty sure that his son will be down for a rematch against Manny Pacquiao, and that Floyd Jr. will beat him again.
There are still some boxing fans who want to see if Floyd Mayweather Jr. will at some point, consider facing Manny Pacquiao in a rematch. Mayweather Jr. is enjoying retirement and has devoted his time to various business undertakings.
The last time Mayweather Jr. took the ring was last New Year’s Eve, where he made short work of Japanese kick-boxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a boxing match.
It wasn’t much of a fight with the 42-year-old future Hall of Famer hardly working up a sweat. But most know that Mayweather Jr. agreed to the fight mainly because he would be earning a big payday.
It appears that money could sway Mayweather Jr. into facing Pacquiao once again as he has been known to be unpredictable, meaning he could change his mind in a snap about the fight.
Pacquiao wants a rematch and his camp made this clear after the Filipino boxing icon beat Keith Thurman recently.
Mayweather Jr. was on hand to witness that fight and his presence raised speculation. But when the smoke cleared, Mayweather Jr. and company reiterated that it will not happen.
Mayweather Jr. even posted on his Instagram account that the fight will never happen.

Pacquiao’s camp has its eyes on Mayweather Jr. despite the odds. A rematch with Thurman is off the shelf, and there are other names that the Filipino boxing icon could face next.
