MANNY PACQUIAO has told Floyd Mayweather he is open to a rematch if the American is prepared to come out of retirement to challenge him.

Pacquiao, 40, retained his WBA ‘regular’ world welterweight title with a unanimous points victory over American Adrien Broner in Las Vegas and while he was non-committal over what may lie ahead, he insisted he is open to the possibility of gaining revenge over 41-year-old Mayweather for his 2015 defeat.

Asked repeatedly about a rematch at his post-fight press conference, he said: “My message is I’m still active and if he goes back to the ring and wants to challenge me, I’m a champion. Get back to the ring and we will fight again if he wants.
