Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao(62-7-2, 39 KOs) and undefeated unified WBC and IBF Welterweight World Champion Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr.(27-0, 21 KOs) will meet in a blockbuster championship showdown that headlines a FOX Sports PBC Pay-Per-View Saturday, August 21 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
This battle for welterweight supremacy will pit the division’s reigning king against a legend of the sport, who has proven in recent years that he is still worthy of his long-held standing.
Outside of a fight between Spence and Terence Crawford, this is probably the best fight that can be made at 147. We’ll see how much the 42-year-old Pacquiao has left, who last fought almost two years ago when he defeated Keith Thurman.
Can he beat another young gun?
The 31-year-old Spence, who defeated Danny Garcia last December, hopes to stay undefeated and continue to be one of the top guys in the sport of boxing.
