Apparently, the two boxers had a quick encounter at a concert in Tokyo, which lead to the idea of having a rematch.
Unfortunately, after a rather uneventful 2015 match between the two boxers, which many expected to be the fight of the century, many people said they aren’t excited with the rematch. They expressed this via posts on social media.
Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao have decided to dust off their retirement gloves and head back to the ring for yet another one of those boring, yet overrated, bouts. We are not respected on this earth yazi…
