Two weeks back Manny Pacquiao convincingly beat Adrien Broner in a 12-round fight via unanimous decision at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Before the fight, there were talks about a potential rematch between Pacquiao and Mayweather. But after the Filipino sensation beat Broner and called out Mayweather, the American star was unmoved.
But a few days later, the pair met at an NBA game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to watch Lakers vs. Warriors. They greet each other, but according to Pacquiao, they are yet to talk about the rematch.

As Pacquiao landed in his home country of the Philippines, he told reporters: “I just said hello there, we did not talk about it [the rematch].
“Maybe in one to two weeks we’ll know if there’s a development with Mayweather.”
Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather went toe-to-toe with each other back in 2015, when the American convincingly beat Pacquiao in a 12-round affair. That fight still remains the biggest fight in the history of the sport to this day.
When Pacquiao was asked the reason behind the rematch talks, Pacquiao replied that people are still interested in watching the fight and countries are bidding for it.
“Many people like this fight. Many countries are bidding.
“There is China, Dubai [UAE], in case the rematch will happen.”
