Johannesburg [South Africa], Sept.9 (ANI): Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao has welcomed the opportunity of a rematch with American rival Floyd Mayweather, while suspecting that only money could tempt the latter out of retirement.

Speaking during the launch of his comeback fight against Jessie Vargas in Las Vegas on November 5, Pacquiao said he would be open to fight against Mayweather if there was a demand for it from the fans.

Pacquiao also took a swipe at the American boxer, saying the American doesn't have any concern for the fans and his only concern was to make money, Sport24 reported.

Pacquiao, who boasted an enviable record of 58 wins in his 66 professional fights, called curtains on his illustrious career after beating Timothy Bradley by unanimous decision in April before being elected to the Philippines senate a month later.

The 37-year-old boxer-turned-politician suffered his last defeat against Mayweather during a heavily anticipated ' Fight of the Century', the highest-grossing bout in history which grossed more than 500 million dollars. (ANI)
