Mayweather is set to return to the cage this weekend in an exhibition bout with Mikuru Asakura.
However, leading up to the bout, Mayweather encountered his former opponent, Pacquiao.
Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao’s ‘fight of the century’
The two boxing icons went head to head back in 2015. Many said that the fight took place later than expected. On that night, Mayweather ran out a convincing winner, defeating Pacquiao on points.
Following his last fight against Conor McGregor, Mayweather has fought a few exhibition bouts which has earned him several big pay days.
Ahead of the showdown with Asakura, Mayweather was joined in Tokyo by Pacquiao who stated that he was there to support Asakura. There have been a few whispers that both Floyd and Manny will go head to head once again.
Floyd warned Manny that he would not have success a second time around if the pair were to face inside the ring again.

“There’s no blueprint on how to beat Floyd Mayweather, he can tell you that himself,” Mayweather said.
“He’s a Hall of Famer, but no-one has the blueprint on how to beat Floyd Mayweather. Don’t let them trick you into getting your ass whooped again.”
In response, Pacquiao said: “He’s older than me, I’m still young so… what I have done and accomplished in boxing is one of a kind.
“To win [world titles in] eight different weight divisions is not easy, I’m not trying to to boast about what I’ve accomplished in life; I’m just saying this in case you forget that. The best fighter in the world has a humility.”

“I’m not here to talk about your personal life, when we talk about what’s going on in the squared circle, I’m the best.
“No matter how you rate it, no matter how you cut it, no matter how you slice it, if you go 100 years back, 300 years back, to now, there’s only one best, and that’s Floyd Mayweather,” Floyd responded.
Speaking about a potential fight, Pacquiao said: “Let’s go. [I]Would love to see it but Mayweather wants none of this smoke due to his ego.
Senator Pacquiao would love an exhibition [against Mayweather]. If he was to return it would be this year, but that is a big if.”
With that being said, Mayweather’s attention will turn to this weekend’s exhibition showdown against Asakura.
In recent times, Floyd has been rumoured to fight several opponents. Therefore, a possible showdown with Pacquiao could be possible.
