Pacquiao, even at the age of 42, isn't backing down and is looking to one-up Spence, who is among the best in the world. The two will fight for a welterweight title.
While many had been pioneering for a fight between Spence and Yordenis Ugas rumored to be on deck, it is Pacquiao who will square off against Spence in the center of the boxing world in Las Vegas.
Manny was rumored to be in line for another fight, although that one never ended up happening. So, August 21 will be his return.
Manny has been away from the ring since 2019 after his victory over Keith Thurman. Of course, Pacquiao's accolades speak for themselves. His record of 62-7-2, 39 KOs proves why he is among the legends of the boxing world, and Spence has his work cut out for him even despite Pacquiao's rising age.
So, buckle up, get your tickets, get that Pay Per View ready. Manny is back, and the fight in Sin City should be wildly popular, not just in the United States but across the globe.
Will Manny Pacquiao make his return to the ring with a victory? Or will Spence defeat the legend?
August 21 can't come soon enough.
