MANNY PACQUIAO hasn’t given up on snaring a rematch with Floyd Mayweather.

“I don’t know know yet who’s my opponent next,” Pacquiao said. “We’re still negotiating right now about the rematch with Floyd Mayweather. So I’m hoping for that.”

Mayweather and Pacquiao staged their long awaited showdown in May of this year. It had been a tortuous negotiating process to seal the deal but the fight itself did not contain as much intrigue with Mayweather ultimately a clear winner on points. While complaints and excuses don’t sit well with boxing fans, immediately after the fight Pacquiao brought up a shoulder injury and it emerged that the state athletic commission had blocked him from taking a pain killing injection.
