Mayweather And Pacquiao Already In Talks For A Rematch In 2016

Were you one of the millions of people who claim they were disappointed by the May 2nd showdown between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather? Well, rumor has it that the two are planning to do it all again, for the money fans. Reports are coming in that once Manny has time to repair his bum arm, Floyd will be more than happy to meet him in the ring again, if the cash is looking right.

Via Page Six:

The rematch is on. Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao made so much money on their recent bout, they want to do it again.

The May 2 fight attracted celeb fans from Beyoncé to Drew Barrymore, Michael Jordan to Justin Bieber. Although the fight was a snooze, and Pacquiao is recovering from shoulder surgery, sources say Showtime, HBO, Bob Arum and all the other parties to the record-breaking $600 million event are ready for more.

“It’s already being negotiated,” a source told me. Pacquiao needs four months of rehab post-surgery, and three months to train. “The fight will be the first event at the under-construction MGM–AEG Arena set to open next year.”

All the parties involved deny talks are under way, but I’m told Pacquiao wants redemption. “He feels he fought with only one arm,” said one insider. Mayweather will do it for the money.

It’s like Hollywood. When a movie makes that much profit, there has to be a sequel. While the first fight took more than five years to come together, all the pieces already are in place for the do-over.

Welp! Looks like it’s time to get those hotels and flights booked (or set up your GoFundMe pages) for “Fight of the Century” part 2. Maybe these two can make it more exciting next time…
