Manny Pacquiao ‘intimidates’ Errol Spence Jr on social media

Despite his responsibilities as a senator in his native Philippines, Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KO’s) does not neglect the job that catapulted him to fame: boxing.

Pacquiao looked intimidating in a video posted on his Facebook account and reveals that he will not be easy prey in his fight against Errol Spence Jr. (27-0-0, 21 KO’s) on August 21 in Las Vegas.

In the video it can be seen that Pacman’s speed remains intact. Time, he is 42 years old, has not dented his boxing skills, hence his fight with Spence Jr., 11 years younger, has raised many expectations, which will be a pay-per-view (PPV) and the weight titles will be at stake. welterweight of the World Boxing Council (WBC) and the International Boxing Federation (IBF).

Pacquiao has not fought since July 2019, when he dropped to the canvas and beat then-undefeated American Keith Thurman (29-1-1 NC, 22 KO’s) via points to clinch the World Boxing Association (WBA) championship. ).

Spence is coming off of beating Danny Garcia (36-3-0, 21 KO’s) last December in Dallas, retaining the WBC and IBF belts that he unified when he defeated Shawn Porter (31-3-1, 17 KO’s) in September 2019. .

On the subject of his fight with Pacquiao, Spence Jr. told Barbershop Conversations that “I was probably 75-80 percent against Danny Garcia … Now I’m sharp as a tack. I’m going to wait for the same Manny Pacquiao we see every time. I will be much stronger and physically better than in my previous fight. If he is looking at the last fight thinking that there are signs of weakness then he is going to be in trouble. “

The legendary Filipino fighter is not the favorite to beat Spence Jr., who is up in the odds 3 to 1, the same line that he had against the senator when he faced Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2015.

The initial lines have Spence at -300, which means that you have to bet $ 300 to be able to collect 100 for his win, while the Filipino comes to pay 250 dollars for every 100 bet for his win. The tie pays up to $ 2,500 for every 100 in play for this outcome.
