Mayweather, who retired in 2017 after beating Conor McGregor, came out over the weekend stating he was working on a blockbuster rematch with Pacquiao.

But the Filipino boxing legend has no interest in an exhibition bout: "Why an exhibition? Make it a real fight," he said.

Mayweather took to social media to make an incredible claim.

"Money May, Money May, Money May all day. Betrnk.com. That's my team in Tokyo, Japan. TMT Tokyo. And of course, I'm Floyd 'Money' Mayweather. What I'm working on right now is the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao exhibition right here in Tokyo, Japan. Stay tuned," he said in a video.

Of course, Mayweather and Pacquiao fought back in 2015 in a fight billed as the 'Fight of the Century'.

The American won the mega money Las Vegas showdown on points.

Rumours of a rematch continue to circulate on social media with Mayweather addressing Saudi Arabia business partners in another video back in August.

He claimed a rematch in Saudi Arabia was in the works, but he shot down those plans.

"The video that y'all been seeing is false because I went to Saudi Arabia. I went there a long time ago," Mayweather said in response to the video.

"I talked to them about me fighting there, just different fights, but they wanted me to specifically say Manny Pacquiao.

"Basically, that's an old video. At the end of the day, there's no talks about me and Manny Pacquiao fighting a rematch.

"Even if we did fight, all they're going to do is have an excuse, just like the first time.

"But as far as me and Manny Pacquiao, as of right now, it will never be a rematch."

Pacquiao, meanwhile, has since become the oldest welterweight champion in boxing history after beating Keith Thurman to win the WBA (Super) title at the age of 40.
