Floyd Mayweather Wants Manny Pacquiao on His Undercard, Bob Arum Talks Rematch

Floyd Mayweather Jr. believes Manny Pacquiao “needs to go back to the drawing board” and suggests it would be profitable for both fighters if the Filipino appears on the undercard of his future headline event.

Mayweather defeated Pacquiao via unanimous-decision win on May 2. He dominated the bout from start to finish and rarely appeared likely to be caught by Pacquiao’s hardest shots.

In a video for FightHype.com (h/t GMA News), Mayweather suggests both fighters could profit from appearing on the same card in two individual battles:

JST of GMA News transcribed Mayweather’s comments:

I look forward to, actually, since September’s my last fight, I look forward to Pacquiao fighting on the undercard.

[...] We could fight on pay-per-view on a doubleheader. I think we both can make some good money. He can fight somebody solid, I can fight somebody solid. 

[...] Together, we can have some good numbers.

Bob Arum, CEO of the Top Rank promotions team that looks after Pacquiao, suggested the Filipino is open to stepping into the ring with Floyd again. Arum complained about the difficulties of working with Mayweather’s camp during the buildup to the last fight, per The Washington Post (h/t Chris Williams of BoxingNews24.com), but he suggests everyone is better experienced to make a second encounter happen.

Arum spoke to ESPN (h/t Alex Richards of the Mirror):

I think we now know what the pitfalls were. And, ultimately, with all the aggravation and trouble, look at the pot of gold that we both produced. I think there will probably be less aggravation in a rematch. We understand each other better now. There’s a real possibility it could work even better.

At this point, it seems Floyd will hold the power to decide exactly who he wants to fight. Pacquiao was forced to have shoulder surgery in the aftermath of the recent fight, as reported by BBC Sport, and it’s uncertain as to whether he would be able to recover in time for September.

The 36-year-old lacked fluidity against Mayweather and failed to unleash the flurry of shots that have seen him overcome so many fighters over the years. Floyd’s victory was so one-sided that, potential earnings aside, there’s nothing left to be settled between the two.

Considering a card with both men on it could excite many fans. Mayweather could face Amir Khan, as reported by Gareth A. Davies of The Telegraph, while talk of Pacquiao’s next encounter is yet to look beyond a rematch with Pretty Boy. Perhaps he would be tempted to avenge his knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez.

Right now, it’s interesting to see Mayweather suggesting alternatives to a rematch. He doesn’t need to beat Pacquiao again to cement his legacy. There’s no guarantee Pacquiao will be even fitter second time round—especially considering his injury—so it may be best for both if they work together on a joint promotion.

As harsh as it sounds, this is most likely the only way we’ll see Pacquiao’s hand raised on the same card as Mayweather.

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Are Selling Their New Orleans Mansion! Find Out How Much They’re Trying To Unload It For HERE!

Anyone have about $7 million to spare?

If so, you can totally buy Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s New Orleans home!

That’s right! This 7,645-square-foot abode could be yours for the low, low price of $6.5 million bucks!

Guess that’s just the price you pay for a home Brangelina has lived in for eight years!

After all, the lovebirds made the purchase in 2007, not long after they decided to rebuild the community after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city.

But their NoLa residence has also been super convenient for them, since they’ve shot plenty of movies in the area!

We can’t imagine it was an easy decision for them to want to let it go.

And while you may be curious of catching a glimpse of the couple’s lived-in mansion, the couple has been super secretive, even leaving off interior photos of their online listing.

Though what they do want us to know is that their 5-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom residence comes with Venetian plastered walls, marble fireplaces, and even a stunning spiral staircase!

Wowza!

Could they be looking for a bigger place to expand their family?

One thing’s for sure: they’re looking at making a pretty penny from this sale, considering they only dropped $3.5 mil when they originally bought it eight years ago!

Do you think The Price Is Right? SOUND OFF in the comments!
