But before that, ‘Pacman’ did something hilarious in his training camp, which left the fans in splits. He brought in a look-alike of Errol Spence Jr. and even clicked a few pictures with him. This look-alike seemed a bigger version of ‘The Truth’.

Pacquiao takes time for some fun activities in the camp, but his sole aim of giving his best in preparations prevails over anything. This is principally why he grabbed pace in his workouts even after staying out of the game for a whopping two years.

More than anyone else, the Filipino Senator stayed proactive for his return against the best. That said, no one better than Spence Jr. could have offered a rugged outing to the boxing veteran at this stage of his career.

Pacquiao took his last fight in 2019, and he’s developed a certain amount of ring rust since then. However, the fans can expect him to be the offensive fighter right from the first bell. This is because it’s his natural style to put his opponents on the back foot.

Moreover, the boxing icon will look to bring in his A-game, as he will be keen to resurrect his position at the peak. Errol Spence Jr will certainly be aware of this and will look to dictate things as well.
