A Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao rematch is set to go down this year. Mayweather revealed the news via social media earlier today, and the news has since been confirmed by multiple outlets.

“I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year. Another 9 figure pay day on the way,” Mayweather writes on Instagram. “We gonna take the belt. We gonna get the payday.” In the aforementioned Instagram clip, Mayweather and Pacquiao can be seen talking together at an unrelated event in Tokyo.

According to ESPN‘s sources, Mayweather is eyeing a December date for the anticipated rematch. The two previously encountered each other in the ring back in 2015, with Mayweather standing victorious at the end of the night. Floyd Mayweather made around $220 million USD from his first match with Pacquiao.

We’ll keep you posted as more details emerge. Manny Pacquiao’s last fight was back in July, and the 39-year-old challenged Mayweather to a rematch following its conclusion.

A couple weeks ago, Mayweather made headlines for inviting Conor McGregor to train at Mayweather Boxing Club gym.
