Pacquiao lost on points to Mayweather in an extremely lucrative bout billed as the 'Fight of the Century' back in May 2015, and a second meeting has been mooted ever since their Las Vegas showdown.

And it appears discussions are underway to make Mayweather vs. Pacquiao II.

The Filipino legend has confirmed that his team are in negotiations with Team Mayweather over a rematch - but nothing has been finalised yet.

"My people are talking to his people, they're talking to each other," he said.

Pacquiao also remains interested in facing Amir Khan should they fail to agree terms with Mayweather.

"I'm planning for next year, trying to make it for next year with a possible opponent," he added.

"Especially Amir Khan wants to fight me. We will talk again. It would be a good fight.

"We can discuss that, a fight between us. I have a commitment for my next fight - one fight only. But after that we can talk. No problem."

Pacquiao last fought in July this year when he captured the WBA (super) welterweight title against Keith Thurman.

He's on a three-fight winning streak since his shock defeat to Jeff Horn, which includes victories over Lucas Matthysse, Adrien Broner and the aforementioned Thurman.

Mayweather, on the other hand, called time on his illustrious career in 2017 after recording his 50th professional victory over Conor McGregor.

The American, though, has fought since his retirement in the form of an exhibition bout against Tenshin Nasukawa.
