FREDDIE Roach sees a rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather happening in the future.

In an interview with Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times, Roach said a Pacquiao-Mayweather II will just be too good to pass up, more so if Pacquiao wins in his next fight tentatively set on April 9.

“If Manny fights a good fighter, looks good, has no shoulder injury, I think Floyd Mayweather and him will go one more time,” said Roach. “Too much money,” Pacquiao’s trainer added.

Top Rank Promotions chief Bob Arum is looking at Terence Crawford, Timothy Bradley, and Amir Khan as possible opponents for Pacquiao next year, supposedly his final one as he is set to run for Senator in the 2016 elections.

But Roach said he doesn’t believe Pacquiao’s next bout is his last.

“They're not going to let that go (Pacquiao-Mayweather 2), I feel,” Roach said.
