Quote: Floyd Mayweather “Deadly Serious About” Manny Pacquiao Rematch

Showtime Sports President has made these claims.

Floyd Mayweather deadly serious about doing a rematch against Manny Pacquiao is something that has been claimed by Stephen Espinoza. The president of programming for Showtime Sports made these comments during a recent interview with TMZ Sports where he was asked about the proposed rematch.

Talks Going Again

If you recall, Mayweather got these talks going just last month when he told TMZ Sports that the two fighters have agreed to a rematch that will produce a 9-figure payday.

The first fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao went down on May 2, 2015, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada that saw Mayweather win the contest by unanimous decision.

Floyd Mayweather “Deadly Serious About It”

Espinoza stated in this interview that he thinks the fight will likely go down in 2019.

“Having spoken to Floyd, I know he’s deadly serious about it. He’s very, very serious about wanting the fight. 2019 sounds perfect. After I get a little bit of sleep after this event, we’ll go at Mayweather/Pacquiao 2, I think.”

Their Records

Pacquiao has gone 6-2 in his last eight fights that include dropping decisions to Mayweather in May 2015 and Jeff Horn in July of 2017. He is fresh off a fight against Lucas Matthysse for the World Boxing Association welterweight title on July 15th, 2018 (July 14th in the United States) at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia that saw him win by TKO.

On the flip side, Mayweather was last seen when he beat former UFC lightweight and featherweight champ Conor McGregor once he defeated him by TKO last year.
“Having spoken to Floyd, I know he’s deadly serious about it. He’s very, very serious about wanting the fight.”

Floyd Mayweather Wants To Fight In Tokyo Before Pacquiao Rematch

Mayweather has some big plans for his return to boxing.

The post Floyd Mayweather Wants To Fight In Tokyo Before Pacquiao Rematch appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

The talk of a rematch between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao has been dominating the boxing world.

Back in May of 2015, Mayweather defeated Pacquiao after 12 rounds of fighting, via unanimous decision. For years talk of a rematch has loomed, and it looks like now it might actually happen. Mayweather threw out the challenge last weekend when he called “The Pac-Man” out.

Mayweather would like to fight Pacquiao in December of this year. Before he gets back into the ring against Pacquiao, however, it looks like “Money” wants a tune-up fight or two. TMZ Sports reports that Mayweather will take a fight in Tokyo first to warm up.

In fact, it looks like Mayweather is looking at opponents beyond the world of boxing. He hasn’t made a decision yet, but he is looking at kickboxers and MMA fighters as well. Interestingly enough, Conor McGregor’s name has reportedly not been mentioned.

Mayweather’s plans are much bigger than boxing. His plan is to put on a big show for fans in Tokyo to open up the Asian market. This will lead to other business interests such as clothing and endorsements.

A date for a potential Tokyo fight has yet to be set in stone, but it’s said that Mayweather is eying a New Year’s Eve date if he can land a big enough venue. If all goes according to plan, fans could see Mayweather vs. Pacquiao II in 2019.

Floyd Mayweather Claims He’s Fighting Manny Pacquiao This Year

Floyd Mayweather is claiming that a rematch is in the works.

The post Floyd Mayweather Claims He’s Fighting Manny Pacquiao This Year appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are apparently fighting each other later this year if the claims come true from the boxing legend. Mayweather told TMZ Sports that the two fighters have agreed to a rematch that will produce a 9-figure payday.

“I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year another 9 figure pay day on the way.”

Pacquiao challenged Matthysse for the World Boxing Association welterweight title on July 15th, 2018 (July 14th in the United States) at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia that saw him win by TKO.

The career of Pacquiao has been on a roller coaster of a ride since suffering a devastating loss knockout loss to great rival Juan Manuel Marquez in 2012. Thus, he has gone 6-2 in his last eight fights that include dropping decisions to Floyd Mayweather, Jr in May 2015 and Jeff Horn in July of 2017.

Mayweather has been teasing for months now that he will make the transition from the world of boxing to the land of MMA. With the idea of Mayweather teasing a jump to MMA from the boxing world, there were many who believe that the opponent for Mayweather would be his former rival Conor McGregor. However, that is not the case now.

It’s an interesting fight as Mayweather doesn’t need money considering that he made around $220 million from his 2015 fight against Pacquiao then took in another $275 million against McGregor once he beat him by TKO last year.

The first fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao went down on May 2, 2015, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada that saw Mayweather win the contest by unanimous decision. No word yet on exactly when this fight will happen or if it’s just a case of Mayweather trying to get headlines again.
