It looks like Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. Part 2 is happening after all.
At least that's what "Money" is saying.
On his Instagram account, Mayweather posted a video, Saturday evening, with the caption "I'm coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year another 9 figure payday on the way".
The video shows Mayweather interacting with the recently-crowned WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Champion Pacquiao in Japan.
Mayweather, 41, is a five-division boxing world champion with a perfect 50-0 professional boxing record, but has been mainly retired since September of 2015. Mayweather returned to the ring in 2017 for a big-money superfight against UFC star Conor McGregor, winning via tenth-round TKO.
Pacquiao, 39, is boxing's only eight-division world champion and is the reigning WBA welterweight titleholder.
