Following a meeting in Japan over the weekend, Floyd Mayweather‏ and Manny Pacquiao have both indicated a rematch between the two fighters could be on the way later this year.

Mayweather, who made about $220 million from his May 2015 fight with Pacquiao, posted a video of the two together on social media.

He captioned the video: “I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year another 9 figure pay day on the way.”

When Pacquiao was asked about the possibility of Mayweather again, he told reporters that nothing is set in stone but he might be willing to put his WBA championship belt on the line against his old foe.

“I’ll negotiate more. When he returns, then we can fight. We’re still talking,” he said. “There is a big possibility [the fight happens]. He wants to come back, he wants to get my belt. We’re going to finalize my next fight this week, either Mayweather or somebody else, where and when, what date.”

Mayweather didn’t say anything else about the fight, but he did post some other interesting things on Instagram from his trip to Japan.
