After winning a unanimous decision against Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather Jr. maintained that he only has one more fight left in his career before he retires.

However, Mannix also noted that nothing is certain with Mayweather:
The most logical choice is likely a rematch with Pacquiao, who didn't fight poorly and thought he deserved to win, per BBC Sport:
BBC Sport's Dan Roan also noted that Mayweather dodged a question after the fight about possibly fighting Amir Khan.
Frankly, it would be surprising if the two didn't fight again given the amount of hype and money that was involved in this match. There was such a demand to order the fight on pay-per-view ahead of time that multiple cable companies had outages and the fight was actually delayed to allow them to address the issue, according to CBS Los Angeles.
Besides, there isn't a fighter in the world who would draw more attention than Pacquiao would in a rematch. And while Mayweather clearly won this fight, the match was close enough, with several rounds contested, that it wouldn't be hard to drum up a fervor for a rematch. Pacquiao can clearly hang with Mayweather, even if the latter fighter essentially controlled the bout throughout.
In other words, if Mayweather indeed has one more fight, expect it to be against Pacquiao.
