Floyd Mayweather & Manny Pacquiao Announce Rematch at Ultra Japan

This has to be one of the strangest intersections of people and places we can imagine, but here it is. This weekend is Ultra Japan and on night one some VIPs made some big news. It turns out both Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao were in attendance. We thought that Floyd Mayweather had retired from boxing after his beat-down of Conor McGregor. Now the pair shocked the world by announcing a rematch as Galantis performed in the background at Ultra. Videos posted by each of them to social media acted as an announcement of sorts.

The two last faced off in 2015 in what was the most hyped boxing match of all time. In 2015 Mayweather prevailed, but Pacquiao has wanted a rematch ever since. In the video Mayweather is heard saying he is coming out of retirement in December and that he’s coming back to fight Pacquiao in 2018.
