Manny Pacquiao and Errol Spence Jr. will be fighting in August.
Manny Pacquiao is one of the biggest legends in the history of boxing and at this point, he doesn't have anything left to prove. Despite this, he is still interested in taking on fights and adding to his record. He is currently the WBA Super Welterweight title champion, and on August 21st, he will be putting this title on the line as he takes on rising superstar Errol Spence Jr., in what should be one of the most compelling bouts of the entire year.
There is a lot on the line for Spence here when you consider how he is undefeated and also holds the WBC and IBF Welterweight titles. If he loses, these belts will immediately go to Pacquiao, all while Spence Jr. will be forced to work his way back up.
