Floyd Mayweather claims he is travelling to Saudi Arabia to discuss Manny Pacquiao rematch

Floyd Mayweather beat Manny Pacquiao in 2015

It's been just under four and a half years since Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao fought in Las Vegas.

The fight, which was billed as the 'fight of the century', proved to be a largely unentertaining affair.

Maywather eventually won the fight by unanimous decision to take his record to 48-0.

The American boxer has since retired from boxing twice and last fought against Conor McGregor in August 2017, where he took his record to 50-0.

But talk of a rematch between Mayweather and Pacquiao cropped up last year and has started to escalate in recent weeks.

And now a video has circulated on social media of Mayweather claiming he is travelling to Saudi Arabia to discuss a potential rematch.

Appearing to address potential Saudi business partners, Mayweather says: “I wanna say thank you.

“It’s an honour to come to Saudi Arabia to sit down with you guys to talk about the Mayweather vs Pacquiao rematch.

“Saudi Arabia. Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather. I’m on my way.”

Watch the video below:

It seems the rematch could be on. If it does happen, let's just hope it turns out to be a more entertaining affair than their first bout...

While Mayweather has been inactive in recent years, Pacquiao remains one of the best fighters in the welterweight division.

The 40-year-old recently defeated Keith Thurman to become the oldest welterweight world champion in boxing history.

Boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard recently expressed his excitement about the prospect of a rematch.

"It'd be a great fight. Put it this way, it should be done," Leonard told TMZ Sports, per the Mirror.

"In a crazy way, it would (help boxing). People would watch it.

"It's two guys in their 40s. When I was 40, I came back, I don't know who it was against, but you had a different stage in your life, spiritually, physically, mentally.

"He (Pacquiao) looked phenomenal (in his last fight)."
