Are we inching closer to a rematch of the most lucrative fight in boxing history?

After Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao took jabs at each other late Tuesday evening, the verbal sparring between the two biggest boxing attractions of this generation continued Wednesday morning.

Mayweather once again took to his Instagram account with two additional photos saying he is the “BOSS” of Pacquiao and makes more money. Mayweather also said he attended Pacquiao’s split decision victory over Keith Thurman on Saturday only because the Senator of the Philippines is his employee, and that he made just as much for a possible nine minutes of work in an exhibition fight with Tenshin Nasukawa (which he won in the first round by knockout).



Pacquiao fired back at his rival, saying Mayweather’s name wasn’t on either of his fight contracts — against Adrien Broner and Thurman — with Premier Boxing Champions. Boxing’s only eight-division world champion threw down the gauntlet and laid down a proverbial challenge.

Excuse me Floyd, your name has not been on any of my PBC contracts. But if you would like to be on the next one, I will have one drawn up and sent to you. #CounterfeitMoney pic.twitter.com/SwFGcpT048
