Recently, the ex-UFC welterweight champ, Tyron Woodley spoke to FightHype. Here, he gave an honest take on this fight.

Yeah, I like both of those guys like both the fighters. I think it’s a good fight. Manny Pacquiao obviously is a fighter that’s did so much in the sport. He’s a little bit older, and he’s still boxing. Don’t get the old schools f*** up, we’re still playing. So you know, I’m rooting for a good fight.” he said.

The veteran Pacquiao might adapt the offensive approach right from the first bell. Because if he lets ‘The Truth’ take control of the ring, Pacquiao might put himself in deep waters right from the get-go.

That said, both the fighters will bring in their A-game for this encounter because more than anything, this fight is important from a legacy standpoint. ‘Pacman’ is already regarded as a legend, but this will be a golden opportunity for Spence Jr. if he wants to cement himself as the best at this weight class.
