In the build-up to the bout, Pacquiao has insisted that clash at the MGM Grand will be his last as a professional. 'I'm so happy to be hanging up my gloves after this fight,' he said last week.
However, his promoter Bob Arum has refused to rule out a return for the Filipino fighter in the future, despite the fact he is set to run for a seat in the Philippines' senate later this year.
'Once that bell rings for that final round, Manny Pacquiao's going to rethink it and who knows if he decides to return?' Arum said.
'I've been in this boxing business for 50 years and I know that fighters retire and other than, say, Rocky Marciano, they come back.
'Will it be Manny's last fight? I'm not ready to guarantee that.'

'I'd love to see a Mayweather-Pacquiao second fight, of course I would,' added Arum. 'The first fight was by far the most lucrative in the history of boxing.
'But Mayweather has to un-retire, Manny has to decide whether or not he's elected to the senate and he'll do the rematch, so we'll have to see.
'You know, I'm done predicting what athletes are going to do.'
