VARIOUS OF MAYWEATHER AND PACQUIAO FACING OFF STORY: Former heavyweight champion Floyd Mayweather said on Saturday (September 15) he was coming out of retirement for a 2018 rematch with Manny Pacquiao.

"I'm coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year," Mayweather, 41, said on his Instagram account.

"Another 9 figure pay day on the way." An accompanying video showed the two fighters at a music festival in Tokyo but it was difficult to hear what they were saying.

In a later video obtained by ESPN, Mayweather says, "Tokyo Japan here we go.... I'm coming back in December." He added, "I'm going to take it (the belt) from him like I did before.

We gonna get the payday and I don't want no shoulder excuses." A rematch had been speculated for years after the two met in a ballyhooed 2015 fight.

Undefeated Mayweather scored a unanimous decision that earned him an estimated $220 million.

Pacquiao later said he was hampered by a right shoulder injury.

Mayweather was back in the ring in 2017, winning by a technical knockout over mixed martial arts world champion Conor McGregor to run his boxing record to 50-0.

He earned a reported $300 million and McGregor $100 million in one of the richest fights in history.

Pacquiao (60-7-2) last fought in July, knocking out Argentine Lucas Matthysse.

Afterward, when asked about a rematch with Mayweather, the Filipino boxer said: "I have the belt, so it's up to him.

If he wants to come back in boxing let's do a second one."
