Just when you were thinking Floyd Mayweather had sailed into retirement after defeating Conor McGregor in boxing's biggest ever fight, he springs back to life and sparks more rumours.

'Money' loves the spotlight, and unsurprisingly, he loves money, so it should come as no surprise that he's sparked fresh rumours about a rematch with one of his previous rivals.

However, it's not McGregor he's eyeing up - it's Manny Pacquiao.

The two shared the ring for the first time three years ago, and it was the American who left victorious, extending his unbeaten streak at the time to 48-0.

As we all know, he's since extended that to 50-0, and although most would be happy finishing their career at that landmark, it appears that that isn't enough for a certain Mayweather.

Despite the fight itself being a bit of a disappointment, Mayweather vs Pacquiao is still one of the biggest fights of all time, and it should come as no surprise that a rematch is a possibility.

Pacquiao is still very much active, fighting earlier this year and defeating Argentine Lucas Matthysse in the seventh round.

Although Mayweather is technically not an active boxer anymore, he's not afraid to come out of retirement for a big-time fight, as he's already proven when fighting UFC star McGregor.

But where has this Mayweather/Pacquiao rematch talk all of a sudden come from?

Well, the two were spotted together at a recent event, and it was all caught on camera.

The two were both in Japan when they crossed paths, and after having a brief chat, Mayweather turned away to announce that a rematch was happening in December of this year.

Just hours after the video was posted online, Mayweather himself posted a similar clip to his Instagram account, confirming the rematch.

Now, we know what everyone will be thinking, this is Floyd Mayweather, he just loves the attention.

And because of that, it's important not to take this saga too seriously, however, it certainly has raised a few eyebrows.
