It was understandable to see many surprised faces as Pacquaio is now 42 years old and hasn’t stepped inside the ring since 2019.
Meanwhile, Spence Jr was due to be fighting Terence Crawford before the WBO ordered for the Welterweight champion to fight Shawn Porter instead.
Despite all these fights changes last minute, we are still due for a great bout when Pacquaio and Spence Jr enter the ring this month.
The welterweight division has provided some great spectacles over the last few years, and the division is getting stronger and stronger.
Here is a comparison of Pacquiao and Spence Jr’s boxing careers:
