The pair met in the ring in 2015
The prospect of a rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather is a distinct possibility after recent events on social media and at ringside.
The pair met in the highly anticipated but ultimately underwhelming "Fight of the Century" in May 2015 and broke every record in the book.
An estimated PPV buy-rate of over 4.4 million has meant the event went down as the richest prize-fight in history and it will be a long time before that record is ever broken.
The fight disappointed after Pacquiao injured his shoulder in the fourth round and coupled with Mayweather's elusive style - the bout lacked the intensive action many were hoping for.
Mayweather has since retired after beating Andre Berto to tie the record of Heavyweight great Rocky Marciano of 49-0.
The Filipino rebounded from the loss with victories over Timothy Bradley and Jesse Vargas to reclaim the WBO welterweight title.
Oddly, Mayweather was ringside to watch his old foe make short work of Vargas fueling talk of a rematch in 2017. He had previouly dropped by Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach's gym twice earlier this year.
Mayweather recently posted a picture of the $100m he received from the Pacquiao fight and confirmed he is still retired.
Gotta love these backseat drivers so worried about another man's legacy instead of trying to write their own. Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh. This is just one of my many checks, a cool $100,000,000.00 that I still have every dime of. Y'all still have to work however, I'm happily retired. At the end of the day, it's them Benjamin Franklins that matter to me, so the jokes on you. I've made smart investments, sorry for those who thought that I couldn't read, write, or count. Y'all call them watches, I call them time pieces. Y'all call them boats, I call them yachts. Y'all call them houses, I call them mansions. Y'all charter jets and we own jets. #TMT

Pacquiao fired back on twitter arguing mayweather should help others with his vast wealth instead of hoarding it.
Luke 16:19-31 The Rich Man proclaimed his wealth to all the world. But Lazarus the Poor Man was the winner at the end. What does it profit a man to be very rich and never help the poor? Let this be a reminder to us all that God gives us our riches to help the poor.

Whether or not the pair ever square off again remains to be seen but they appear to be putting the pieces in place for a rematch.
