The boxer Floyd Mayweather said Saturday a rematch of his famed 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao will take place this year.

Mayweather posted a message on Instagram on Saturday saying, “I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year. Another 9 figure pay day on the way.”

He also posted a picture of himself in a nightclub in Japan with Pacquiao.

The pair first fought in a much-hyped match three years ago as the unbeaten Mayweather came out on top with the Philippines’ Pacquiao chasing a new fight ever since.

One of the wealthiest sportsmen ever, Mayweather retired from the ring after his victory over Conor McGregor a year ago.

In the Instagram video, Mayweather, one of the richest men in sport, said: “I’m coming back in December.”
