Mayweather last fought on Aug. 26, 2017, against Conor McGregor in the Money Fight. Mayweather defeated McGregor with a 10th round TKO to move to 50-0 in professional boxing matches, surpassing Hall of Famer Rocky Marciano who previously held the record at 49–0.
Mayweather posted a video on social media with the caption: “I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year. Another 9 figure payday on the way.”
