As for Trump, Broner appeared on "The Breakfast Club" and openly stumped for The Donald -- telling Charlamagne Tha God that he's voting for DT because he'll help save money on taxes!

And speaking of cash ... Broner was also asked if he REGRETS shooting down Jay Z's offer to join Roc Nation Sports last year ... you know, the one that came with a $40 MILLION CONTRACT!!

Check out the clip ... AB still thinks Jay's number is chump change -- but says he feels bad for blasting Rihanna at the time.

Nobody wants to see a Mayweather vs. Pacquiao rematch ... so says boxing superstar Gennady Golovkin who says if Floyd wants to come back, he should call GGG instead.

Gennady fights this weekend against undefeated Dominic Wade -- but everyone wants to know who GGG will fight next ... especially with talk of a superfight with Canelo Alvarez. 

Check out the clip ... GGG says he's ready for C.A. ... but if he had to choose, he'd fight Mayweather in a heartbeat.

EXCLUSIVE

0412_manny_bob-arum_mayweather_tmzManny Pacquiao's promoter tells TMZ Sports a rematch with Floyd Mayweather is "more likely than not" ... but says there are still some serious obstacles to overcome.

We spoke with Bob Arum who says, "It's close to 50/50 but probably leaning more toward the fight happening ... more likely than not."

Arum says he hasn't spoken with Manny or Floyd specifically about the rematch -- but says, "If the match was available, I believe [Manny] would come back for that match." 

Arum also says he knows Showtime has serious interest in Mayweather vs. Pacquiao II -- and that's an important component to making the fight happen. 

So, what are the obstacles? For starters, both guys claim they're retired ... with Manny focusing on a senate run in the Philippines and Floyd focusing on promoting his fighters. 

But Arum says, "If either man agrees to fight, my feeling is that they won't be able to resist."

Stay tuned ...
