We are still less than a week away from the boxing match that was waited for by everyone in the world as Floyd Mayweather took on Manny Pacquiao.

The two gave a match that everyone had been wanting to see for many years and despite the match itself not living up to the hype, everyone is still talking about it.

Mayweather won on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada by a unanimous decision despite Pacquiao and his family claiming that they thought he had won.

In the aftermath of the fight, everyone has had different questions and there have been different things revealed.

Pacquiao revealed a shoulder injury, everyone asked about a rematch and the stars in attendance wondered what after party to go to.

However we got our answer to one question on Tuesday as the pound-for-pound king Mayweather revealed that he would be willing to put off his retirement in September to have a rematch.

Mayweather had previously said that he would be open to giving Pacquiao a rematch but it now appears that that is no longer possible.

"Did I text Stephen A. Smith and say I will fight him again? Yeah, but I change my mind. At this particular time, no, because he's a sore loser and he's a coward,"  - Mayweather on a rematch with Pacquiao

There are very few men on the planet who would be brave enough to call Pacquiao a coward but Mayweather has sent a big message in doing so.

Mayweather has clearly declined the world the chance of seeing a rematch and it all remains to be seen what lies in his future?

What next for Mayweather?

It would appear that there are several paths that Mayweather could take now with his career and each would offer something different.

Rumours are rife that British boxer Amir Khan is eager for a match with Mayweather come September in what could be an interesting bout.

However the other option is that Mayweather would continue his plan of retiring in September and if he does, the question becomes, how will the boxing world recover?
