As the pair continue to be linked to a massive rematch, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao spent time together in Texas recently.

Mayweather and Pacquiao were pictured arm-in-arm at the AT & T Stadium, no doubt reliving some memories from their first fight in 2015.

It’s unprecedented how many times the ring legends have been snapped in the same vicinity of late. Evoking memories if immediately prior to their first battle.

Back in training, Mayweather has already promised Pacquiao a rematch. Whilst the Filipino now has something in his possession for Mayweather to aim for – a world title belt.

The current WBA welterweight champion, facing Pacquiao again would give Mayweather the chance to add yet another belt to his haul.

Since claiming his first in 1998, Mayweather is an eleven-time world champion. Those straps have come in an amazing five weight divisions.

At the age of 42, Mayweather contemplating a comeback is big news. The ‘Money’ man recently sparred for the first time in eighteen months, fueling further speculation.

Last entering a boxing ring professionally to face an MMA fighter in Conor McGregor, Mayweather has to get serious for Pacquiao.

Putting his body through it’s paces, it’s thought Mayweather will make a final decision on whether to sign for a Pacquiao return soon.

Heading to Dallas to watch Errol Spence dominate Mikey Garcia, Mayweather made sure he was in attendance.

Pacquiao confirmed his desire to be ringside as he could face the winner if Mayweather avoids a return.


SPENCE

After Spence won, the IBF ruler and the ‘Pacman’ both agreed the contest could be next.

“He’s broken records here before. He’s a legend in the sport and it’d be my honor to fight him next,” said Spence.

“Yes, why not? – We’ll give the fans a good fight,” added Pacquiao. “I’m so happy to be here at AT&T Stadium. I hope I will be back here soon.”

Making his presence felt, Mayweather sought out Pacquiao to ensure the pair were pictured together – keeping ‘MayPac 2’ firmly in the limelight.

Already scoring a victory over Adrien Broner in 2019, the clock is firmly ticking for Pacquiao, 40.

A decision will have to be made by Mayweather in the coming weeks. If not, Spence will then take over as the favorite to land a Pacquiao encounter.
