No story of Manny Pacquiao is ever complete without speculation of a fight with Floyd Mayweather.
With Mayweather sitting at ringside in Las Vegas, Pacquiao defeated Jesse Vargas by unanimous decision Saturday night for the WBO Welterweight title.
Immediately speculation turned to whether a rematch with Mayweather is imminent.
Mayweather is officially retired, but so was Pacquiao prior to his fight with Vargas.
Pacquiao said it was he who invited Mayweather to the match. Pac Man’s no dummy. He’s a showman at heart and he knows the mere presence of Mayweather will resurrect talk about a rematch.
Of course, the two will remain coy while the promoters work behind the scenes to make it happen.
Their last match which Mayweather won left many underwhelmed. The feeling is a rematch can’t be any worse and there are hordes of boxing fans willing to take the chance and commit big bucks to see it on pay for view.
Would you pay to see a rematch?
In the other big match on the card, Nonito Donaire lost his super bantamweight title to Jesse Magdaleno in a 12 round unanimous decision. It was a dream of the Filipino Fash to play on the same card with Pacquaiao. Unfortunately it didn’t end the way he had envisioned.
