Manny Pacquiao’s bid to rematch Floyd Mayweather took a big step yesterday with the news that he had signed with manager Al Haymon.
Haymon is the founder of Premier Boxing Champions and more importantly is the long-time advisor to Mayweather, becoming crucial to get any hope of a rematch over the line.
Pacquiao, 40 cut ties with longtime promoter Top Rank after handing defeat to former world champion Lucas Matthysse.
Reports of a rematch between ‘Money’ and ‘Pac Man’ intensified when Mayweather flew to Tokyo on September 15th to meet Pacquiao during a music festival.
Since then cryptic messages have been shared by the two on social media.
The new move from Pacquiao, Mayweather aside could also potentially open a few other avenues with Al Haymon managing the likes of Errol Spence Jr, Shawn Porter, Keith Thurman, Danny Garcia and Adrien Broner amongst many others.
It’s a bold move from the legendary figure, who has severed ties with trainer Freddy Roach and possibly even his business manager Michael koncz if reports are to be believed.
