Floyd Mayweather says he will fight Manny Pacquiao again and no-one on the planet is surprised

A rematch. Who would have thought it?

So Manny Pacquiao went along the lines of claiming that he thought he had won the fight first. When that was too unbelievable, he pulled out the ol' shoulder injury classic.

And it looks to be working.

The money generated from The Fight of the Century - and not just from the Burger King king - was absolutely stupendous. But imagine you could double it...

When the fun stops, the gambling should stop and all that. But what if you were guaranteed crazy figures every time you stepped in the ring? It's not gambling and it's always fun.

And, despite saying that he was going to retire - again - Mayweather has apparently said he would be open to a rematch with Manny Pacquiao. Even after his planned 49th fight in September.

In a text to an ESPN reporter, Mayweather is supposed to have said, "I will fight him in a year after his surgery."

Pac Man is scheduled for surgery later this week, the MGM has plans to open a new MGM Grand Arena in April 2016... You do the maths.

That opening coincides with boxing legend's Rocky Marciano's retirement.

Marciano won 49 fights in an undefeated career.

By April next year, Mayweather should have done so, too.

He will then have the chance to better him with 50, on his own retirement day, in another Fight of the Century.

The stars are aligning. The cheque books are aflicking.
