Manny Pacquiao proved that he's still got it when he defeated the much younger Keith Thurman Saturday. 

Now, the bigger question has become: Will he get back in the ring with his long-time rival Floyd Mayweather?

Rumors of a possible match up have swirled around the internet and Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach has even said that he would welcome the fight.

"I'd like to get that one back one more time," Roach said in an interview with TMZ sports. "I know we can do much better. We had an injury in that fight, but regardless, we lost a close decision. I know Manny can do much better than that," he continued.

Mayweather even danced around the question posting his own responses on Instagram.

SWIPE LEFT Let's stick to the facts! Bob Arum is no longer your promoter, so when it comes to @mayweatherpromotions & PBC events I’m the HNIC! Bottom line, I make more money than you; I beat you, then I signed you! I was only at your fight supervising you, my employee, as any real BOSS would do. You made $10Million for 12 rounds, when I just made $9M in under 3 minutes playing around in an exhibition with a pizza delivery guy! I beat you mentally, physically and financially! Remember, you fight cause you have to, I fight when I want to! #TMT #TBE #mayweatherpromotions @greg_tmt

"Remember, you fight cause you have to, I fight when I want to!" Mayweather wrote under a photo showing him delivering a blow to Pacquiao's jaw.

CEO of Mayweather Promotions Leonard Ellerbe cleared up all of the speculation regarding a rematch, in a recent interview with DJ Flexx.

"Floyd is retired," he said.

He assured DJ Flexx that there is no chance of it happening again because he has no need.

"He's been very blessed," he said. "We put him in a situation where he's made over a million dollars in his career. He's 42 years old, he has all his faculties; now he's just getting a chance to live life."

So that's that.

The two fighters will never again be in the same ring together.
