Manny Pacquiao responds to Floyd Mayweather Jr: 50-1

Retired boxing great Floyd "Money" Mayweather created tons of buzz Saturday evening Manila time after posting a video on Instagram showing himself interacting with eight-division boxing world champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao in Japan.
On the video's caption, Mayweather Jr. announced that he'll be coming out of retirment for a rematch with Pacquiao.
Adding even more fuel to the fire of the rematch talks, Pacquiao posted a video on Instagram as well, showing what appears to be a different angle of the interaction.
Then on the caption, Pacquiao simply wrote "50-1 #NoExcuses".
50-1 is a reference to Mayweather's perfect 50-0 record, while #NoExcuses could be a reference to the rumours that Pacquiao's shoulder was hurt back when he and Mayweather first shared the ring in 2015.
The video also shows Mayweather repeatedly yelling out "December" which could mean the target date for the rematch.
If it does push through, the rematch could be for the WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Championship, which is currently held by Pacquiao after defeating Lucas Matthysse back in July.
