MANNY PACQUIAO has challenged Floyd Mayweather to risk his record in a rematch plus revealed plans to fight in the UK.
The Filipino icon was beaten by 50-0 Mayweather in 2015, which ended five long years of waiting.
But despite around £500MILLION made, a rematch failed to materialise with both boxing legends now retired from the sport.
Mayweather, 45, has competed in four exhibition bouts since hanging up his gloves after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor, 34, in 2017.
Meanwhile Pacquiao, 43, returns on December 10 against Korean YouTuber DK Yoo, 42.
The eight-division champion still holds out hope of a rematch with his great rival, but doubts it will be a sanctioned bout.

Pacquiao told the Daily Mail: "The Floyd fight, I am not sure a real fight is going to happen anymore. He doesn't want to.
"He would maybe do an exhibition. There is a chance for an exhibition fight to take place. That is possible. But, a real fight, I don't think will happen."
Pacquiao retired last August after losing to Cuban Yordenis Ugas, 36, and focussed his efforts on a presidential campaign in the Philippians.
But following defeat in the polls, PacMan is considering a comeback and would even be willing to fight in the UK.

He said: "I am hoping before my boxing career ends, I will have an exhibition or professional fight in the UK. I hope that a fight will happen."
Pacquiao revealed he is training as hard as ever and will use his exhibition return to decide whether he will fight again for real.
He said: "I will fight anybody for an exhibition or a professional fight.
"This December 11 fight is going to be a mixture of seeing if I want to return to my boxing career or continue doing exhibition matches.
Pacquiao added: "My training for this charity exhibition is the same as I have done in the past.
"You saw what we were doing in the past and that's what we are going to do during this training camp.
"I will head back to the Philippines and start serious training."
