Pacquiao dares Mayweather to re-match

MANNY Pacquiao is continuing to pursue a money-spinning rematch with old foe Floyd Mayweather, but the chances of a rerun of their 2015 dust-up look slim at present.

The two renewed their rivalry on social media this week, following Pacquiao’s dominant victory over the previously unbeaten Keith Thurman.

Mayweather, who comprehensively outpointed Pacquiao in their ‘Fight of the Century’ clash four years ago, was ringside in Las Vegas to watch the Filipino roll back the clock and pick up the WBA ‘Super’ welterweight world title.

With Pacquiao evidently proving he still possesses the speed, power and ability to mix it on the world scene, talk immediately turned to his next move.

Inevitably, Mayweather’s name was thrown in the hat after the American attempted to belittle Pacquaio’s achievements by claiming his ‘entire legacy and career’ was built off his name.

The 42-year-old wrote on Instagram: “I find it real ironic how every time Pacquiao’s name is brought up in the media, my name is always attached to it.

“For years, all you heard was that “Floyd is afraid of Manny Pacquiao,” but what’s funny is, when we finally fought, I won so easily that everyone had to eat their words!

“All of the so called boxing experts, critics and jealous American ‘fan base’ either went mute and ran for cover or made every excuse in the world as to why I should give Manny Pacquiao a rematch.” – MailOnline
