He also posted a picture of himself with Pacquiao at an event in Japan.

The pair first fought in a much-hyped match three years ago, when the unbeaten Mayweather came out on top. The Philippines' Pacquiao has been chasing a new fight ever since.

One of the wealthiest sportsmen ever, Mayweather, 41, retired from the ring after his victory over Conor McGregor a year ago.

In the Instagram video, Mayweather said: "I'm coming back in December."
