While they are about five years too late, a rematch between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will take place sometime in 2024.

Pacquiao unveiled the fight plans live at RIZIN 45 on December 31, but Mayweather’s camp hasn’t confirmed anything from their side.

Even though this fight is long overdue and both fighters around the 45-years mark, it will still draw some attention and PPV purchases. Of course, not even close to the record numbers they did back in May 2015.

Pacquiao retired in 2021 with a 62-8-2 record while Mayweather remains undefeated.  Mayweather's fights in recent years have drawn record numbers of sports gamblers.

SportsBetting.ag set odds for the bout this week and they are much closer than in 2015. Then, Mayweather went off as a -225 favorite while Pacquiao came in as a +175 underdog.

As you can see, early action has already come in on Pacquiao, moving the odds in his favor. Since this is likely to be an exhibition match, perhaps the oddsmakers and bettors are viewing Pacquiao as the more motivated contender.
