During a visit to Tokyo, the undefeated boxing legend had a run in with Manny Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KOs) —coincidentally — this meeting occurred on the same day as the recent blockbuster rematch between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin.

According to Mayweather’s social media account, the two will meet in December in a rematch of their 2015 bout, a fight that earned $400 million in revenue and still holds the record for most PPV buys at 4.6 million. Mayweather won the first bout via unanimous decision (118-110, 116-112 x 2).
With the fight expected to take place inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this December, any Saturday aside from December 29th, that night is reserved for UFC 232 ‘Cyborg vs. Nunes’, is currently open for business.
