Report: Floyd Mayweather open to Manny Pacquiao rematch, but 'Pac Man' out until 2016 with rotator cuff surgery

Manny Pacquiao thinks he beat Floyd Mayweather when they battled for 12 rounds last Saturday night (May 2, 2015) in Las Vegas, Nevada (highlights here).

"Money" is willing to let him prove it.

Mayweather, despite a convincing unanimous decision win over "Pac Man" (according to the scorecards) following their historic pay-per-view (PPV) fight inside MGM Grand, has agreed to grant Pacquiao another chance to finish what he started in "Sin City."

There's just one problem.

Pacquiao is expected to have surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff, one he claims hampered his performance, and could be on the shelf until 2016. That's problematic when you consider that Mayweather wants just one more fight -- in September -- before calling it a career.

"After speaking with the doctor, it was determined that the best method and approach is for Manny to have surgery," Pacquiao adviser Michael Koncz told ESPN.com. "Manny is doing okay."

The Filipino pugilist is expected to go under the knife later this week in Los Angeles, Calif., and has a target return date of six months for training, and nine-to-twelve for competing. Is "Money" willing to wait that long? That depends on the income a second go-round with "Pac Man" would generate.

First one wasn't too shabby.
