Manny Pacquiao has left it to his fans to decide his next opponent –a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jnr.

Eight-weight world champion Pacquiao has repeatedly called for another meeting with Mayweather – who secured a unanimous points victory over ‘Pac-Man’ when the two originally met in 2016 in one of the richest fights in boxing history.

After a comprehensive victory over Adrien Broner in January, the Filipino fighter is hoping for another big fight at welterweight, conducting a poll on Twitter asking his legion of followers to choose between four opponents in Mayweather, WBA champion Keith Thurman, Shawn Porter and Danny Garcia.

Former unified champion Mayweather has been the overwhelming winner, securing 73 percent of the vote with over 80,000 fight fans voting.

Mayweather returned to the ring to beat UFC superstar Conor McGregor in the summer of 2017 before earning a big pay day in Japan on New Year’s Eve after dismantling kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition bout.

The 42-year-old however has indicated he has no intention of coming out of retirement again. “It's not always about the money, believe it or not. What more can the man do?” CEO of Mayweather Promotions Leonard Ellerbe said earlier this year.

"He doesn't have the motivation, the desire. He's living the best life, travelling, running his multiple businesses, spending his well-hard earnings that he spent blood and tears on for years.

"He'll be 42 come February 24 and enough is enough.”

There is no shortage of fighters wanting to share the ring with Pacquiao however with IBF champion Errol Spence challenging the veteran following his sublime victory over Mikey Garcia.
