A rematch between Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao and unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. isn’t likely to happen again,Pacquiao himself was quoted as saying on radio on Saturday, September 12.
Pacquiao’s statement was in response to queries as to whether the Filipino boxer and Mayweather would meet again after the American allegedly cheated in their bout in Las Vegas, Nevada last May 2 by injecting himself with drugs to avoid dehydration.
The Sarangani Representative said that a rematch had a low chance of happening due to Mayweather’s issue of violating the rules and regulations of World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
Pacquiao lost to Mayweather via unanimous decision.
Pacquiao said he would let the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) decide on the issue.
Pacquiao was reported to have said that he would hang up his boxing gloves in 2016 to run for a higher position in Philippine government.
Mayweather, on the other hand, will be facing Andre Berto at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas today, September 12 (local time), before he also hangs up his gloves.
If Mayweather wins, he will tie Rocky Marciano who has a milestone of 49-0 record.
Pacquiao will be focusing on the construction of his third mansion in Mateo Road, General Santos City, report said.
