The 41-year-old boxer shocked the world when he announced that he will come out of his retirement for the second time just to fight Pacquiao during their encounter at a concert in Japan, the same time.
“I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year another 9 figure pay day on the way,” said Mayweather on Instagram.
Their last match, which was dubbed “The Fight of the Century”, was almost five years in the making until May 2015.
Mayweather walked away with a victory against Pacquiao in his “retirement match”, but came back to the boxing ring where he notched his 50th win against UFC star Connor McGregor.
