Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced that he plans to fight Manny Pacquiao again via Instagram on Saturday. The fight will supposedly take place by the end of the year. 

The first fight happened in May 2015. Mayweather won the massively hyped fight by unanimous decision. Mayweather earned $220 million from that fight. It was the largest pay-per-view event in history but many fans felt cheated by the fight.
