Manny Pacquiao Is Still Demanding A Rematch With Floyd Mayweather
Manny Pacquiao wants a second crack at Floyd Mayweather before finally retiring to run for president in the Philippines.
The 41-year-old boxing legend has his sights set on a highly-anticipated rematch with Money Mayweather, five years after their first fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in 2015.
The first bout, which Pacquiao lost on points, was the most lucrative combat sports event of all time with both fighters taking home hundreds of millions of dollars.
But Pacquiao wants more - and it's not the pocket full of cash feeling that he's chasing.
The Filipino great wants to avenge his loss to Mayweather, whose 50-0 record still stands following his win over UFC showman Conor McGregor in 2017 - their blockbuster bout surpassing Mayweather vs Pacquiao as the highest Pay Per View fight in boxing history.
Pacquiao is the only eight-division world champion in the history of boxing and feels as though he deserves his shot at redemption.

His legendary trainer Freddie Roach told BoxingScene: "What he would like best is Mayweather one more time.
"He would like to get that one back one more time. He would. Watching the fight with no commentary it was a pretty close fight.
"He fought well but he can fight much better and with much more activity. I think the activity would be too much for Mayweather.
"Then again, Mayweather might not come back."
While it's abundantly apparent that both boxers are well past their prime, die-hards fight fanatics would be stupid to pass up the chance of seeing two legends go at it one last time.
And besides, even if it is an extortionate pay day that Pacquiao is chasing (we know that will be Mayweather's driving force) us sports tragics won't care either way.
