MANNY PACQUIAO has set his sights on a rematch with Floyd Mayweather – a month after the seventh anniversary of their ‘Fight of the Century’.

Pacquiao, 43, desperately chased a shot at redemption against Money after losing their showdown but missed out when his rival retired from professional boxing in the summer of 2017.

Former five-weight world champion Mayweather, 45, has taken part in three exhibition bouts since retiring after his 2017 stoppage victory over Conor McGregor.

Pretty Boy was last in action in May against former sparring partner Don Moore, who he dominated in their Abu Dhabi dust-up.

And the multi-millionaire plans to have another desert showdown later this year.

He said: “I would like to thank everybody in the UAE, the media, and everybody who covered this fight.

“This is one of the best countries in the world. Don Moore is still undefeated, we are both still undefeated.

“I will bring another fight back to the UAE this year. It’s a secret.

“I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag right now.

“But we have an opponent, and I choose the UAE. It’s been a little rollercoaster ride for all of the fighters.

” I want to commend the fighters on just being patient.”
