Mayweather Says Pacquiao Rematch Will Happen This Year, Rodgers Still Questionable

Jonathan Grant | September 15th, 2018

One of the biggest and most financially rewarding fights of all time looks like it could be set for a second occurrence. Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, according to the former, will meet sometime this year. The first meeting between the two boxers came in 2015, and it was considered a few years too late by many experts. Nonetheless, it happened, and Mayweather won it in the end, as he always does. Mayweather took him $100 million from the fight, so it’s no wonder he would be open to a rematch. We’ve seen him coming out of retirement before, so you’d have to say he’s a big favorite to win if and when this rematch takes place.

Aaron Rodgers practiced for the first time since injuring his knee last Sunday on Saturday, but the Green Bay Packers remain coy on his status. The Packers are still calling him questionable, but if all of us can be honest for a second, he’s going to play. They were saying earlier in the week that he didn’t need to practice to play. If that is the case, then if he is practicing he will almost certainly play. It’d be a big surprise to see him not out there. Now, he may have to change his game up a little by being less mobile, but we should see him give it a go tomorrow.

And last but not least, we arrive at Noah Syndegaard again. The New York Mets pitcher might just be the best in the league, and his performance on Friday night at Fenway Park will have done little to prove otherwise. He was simply impervious, pitching seven shutout innings in a 8-0 win over MLB’s best Boston Red Sox. Syndegaard very much enjoyed his first start at the hallowed old ground, all with the exception of a rat that disappointed him. He joked after the game about how the rats in New York were bigger. Let’s just take his word on that.
