Just when you thought the saga was done...
Eight-division world champion and newly-unified WBA world champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao recently fired back at long-time rival Floyd "Money" Mayweather on Instagram for 'using his name to get attention'.
Over the weekend, Floyd was seen on a video talking about going to Saudi Arabia to talk about a potential Pacquiao-Mayweather rematch.
On his personal Instagram account, Pacquiao reposted the video with the caption: "Looks like @FloydMayweather is using my name again to get himself some attention. #FunnyMoney"
Quite a bit of turnabout for Mayweather, given that he went on a lengthy tirade on social media because he felt that his name was always being brought up for a rematch with Pacquiao after the Filipino boxing icon's latest win over Keith Thurman.
Now, it looks like 'Money' Mayweather is jumpstarting the talks of a Pacquiao rematch again.
This time around however, it looks like Pacquiao - who has openly said that he is open to a rematch - isn't fully buying it.
Will it finally lead to deals being made and contracts being signed? Again, only time will tell.
