MANNY PACQUIAO reckons rival Floyd Mayweather is "scared to death" to fight him for a second time.
The American won their first bout on points at the MGM Grand back in 2015, inflicting only the sixth defeat of Pacquiao's career.
Pacquiao is back in the ring on Sunday when he fights Youtuber DK Yoo in what should be a straightforward affair.
It'll be the first time the 41-year-old has fought since losing to Yordenis Ugas in August 2021.
Ahead of the fight, the Filipino has been talking about the prospect of a rematch with Mayweather, with fans desperate for the iconic duo to do it all over again.
But Pacquiao believes the American is scared of him and reckons he would win "easily".

He told: "FightHype. "I don’t think he will do a rematch with me, Floyd. I don’t think so.
"What I thought is [that] he’s scared to death to fight again. And that’s my analysis and thought pretty much with him.
"Well, I can beat him easily. I don’t want an exhibition fight with him. I want a real fight – a 12-round fight with him.
"Currently we have an obligation to fight DK Yoo in an exhibition match, I am focused also for that but I hope the fans will watch it to see my style. But we will see after that."
