Floyd Mayweather Jr. claims he was paid millions to make a video teasing a potential second fight against Manny Pacquiao.

In the video, which began circulating Sunday on Twitter, the boxer says he's traveling to Saudi Arabia to "talk about the Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch."

However, Mayweather explained in an Instagram post Monday that the video was filmed months ago and he has no intention of fighting Pacquiao again.

Mayweather topped Forbes' list of the highest-paid athletes in 2018 with estimated earnings of $285 million. He failed to crack the list this year.
