Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao will fight welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr in August, after two years away from the boxing ring.
On the evening of May 21, Pacquiao posted on Twitter photo of the match Errol Spence Jr, who holds the IBF belt from 2017 and WBC from 2019. This welterweight fight is expected to take place on August 21 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
The last time Pacquiao fought was on July 20, 2019, when he beat Keith Thurman by referee points. After 12 rounds without knockout, the Filipino boxer was won by two referees with a score of 115-112. The other referee ruled Thurman won 114-113. It was Pacquiao’s 62nd win in 71 fights. He has only lost twice during his career, to Mayweather in 2015 and Jeff Horn in 2017.
The victory over Thurman also makes Pacquiao the oldest boxer to win a welterweight belt in one of the four largest boxing organizations (WBA, WBC, WBO and IBF).
In mid-2020, Pacquiao considered fighting with Conor McGregor, the match was reported Insider estimated revenue of $250 million. But negotiations failed. Two American boxers, Mikey Garcia and Terence Crawford, are rumored to be McGregor’s replacement, but Spence is now confirmed to be Pacquiao’s next opponent. In early 2021, Pacquiao was stripped of his welterweight title by the WBA for not playing for a long time after his victory over Thurman.
Pacquiao’s next opponent, Spence is currently considered one of the best boxers in the welterweight category with a record of winning 27 professional fights. In October 2019, the 31-year-old American boxer had a terrible car accident. He was admitted to the hospital unconscious, but did not suffer any damage to the bones of his head and brain, and recovered after about half a year.
At the end of last year, Spence returned, defeating fellow boxer Danny Garcia by points, 117-111, 116-112 and 116-112, thereby successfully defending the WBC and IBF welterweight belts.
