‘Pac Man’ didn’t compete for the whole of 2020. His last fight was against Keith Thurman in July 2019, wherein Pacquiao claimed a gratifying win. Right from the first bell of this contest, the 42-year-old walked his adversary down, and as a result, he ended up on the winning vertical.

With that, the Filippino Senator went out of action for a while, but now, he’s finally in to face a worthy fighter in Errol Spence Jr. Earlier, he was supposed to fight the WBO welterweight champ, Terence Crawford, but due to some uncertainties, this encounter failed to materialize.

Yet, as ‘Pac Man’ had firm plans of stepping inside the squared circle this year, he was ready to box anyone. With his fight with ‘The Truth‘ being official now, Pacquiao has a substantial time to prepare in the finest way possible.
