By Ponciano Melo – With over two months of staying until his profoundly expected battle against Errol Spence Jr, Manny Pacquaio began preparing.
Generally viewed as perhaps the best fighter ever, the Filipino southpaw has had a renowned lifetime, winning 12 world titles and being the solitary eight-division best on the planet in the game.
He has a severe excellent expert record of 62 successes out of 71 battles with just seven losses up until this point.
Pacquaio’s last battle was against Keith Thurman in Nevada just about two years prior. In this manner, he won the session through split choice, turning into the most established welterweight champion at 40 years old years and 216 days.
The 42-year-old will next take on Errol Spence Jr at the same scene on August 21, and he’s as of now began his preparation as the new film demonstrates.
The battle in August is something boxing fans everywhere in the world will be excited about watching. Pacquaio will undoubtedly confront perhaps the most challenging episode of his vocation. On the other hand, Spence, the current IBF and WBC welterweight champion has yet to lose any of his 27 battles and will be excited about keeping up that record.
The 31-year-old’s last battle was against Danny Garcia, which he won, and that is presumably why he is viewed as the top pick against Pacquaio in August. Nonetheless, the 42-year-old will be a long way from willing to tap out.
Not long back, Floyd Mayweather, who beat Pacquaio in 2015, said, via BoxingNews24: “He [Pacquiao] is very dangerous still.”
Spence, who is currently at the peak of his powers, might be the favorite to win the fight in August, but someone of Pacquaio’s quality should not be written off. With a sea of experience under his belt, the Filipino is more than capable of giving his opponent a run for his money.
Nevertheless, it is a highly-anticipated fight, one which fans can hardly wait for.
It will be interesting to see who comes out on top in Nevada.
