Floyd Mayweather took to Instagram again this morning with a post about Manny Pacquiao, but given the rumors and the content of the video he put up, it's worth asking: Is The Fight coming?

Mayweather (47-0, 26 KO) put up this video of Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KO) being knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez in 2012, but with the accompaniment of Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust," indicating -- MAYBE! -- that Mayweather is predicting Pacquiao's future.

There is a lot of talk that Mayweather vs Pacquiao negotiations are serious this time, and that we're as close as we've been since 2010 to seeing this actually, finally happen.

The other possibility is that this is Floyd just being Floyd, as he's prone to posting anti-Pacquiao photos and videos on his Instagram account, mostly in attempt to dismiss Pacquiao as a credible challenger or interesting opponent.
