Boxing legend Pacquiao announces superfight with Errol Spence

Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao will face Errol Spence Jr. on Aug. 21, according to social media announcements from both boxers on Friday.

Sources say the venue will be the MGM Grand, though Pacquiao told the Atlantic he hoped the fight would be at the Raiders’ home, Allegiant Stadium, which features a 70,000-seat capacity.

“I love to challenge the top guy,” Pacquiao, 42, told The Athletic in an interview from the Philippines.

Manny Pacquiao Promotions president Sean Gibbons told ESPN, “Many people believe Spence is the best welterweight in the world and one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world, and Pacquiao has never shied away from fighting real fights.

“He’s not going to make a fool of himself fighting YouTubers or social media guys like Floyd Mayweather is, and he wants to continue his legacy. He’s always fought the best, and he doesn’t want to change now.”

In his most recent fight, in July 2019, Pacquiao beat Keith Thurman in a split decision to win his since-vacated WBA super welterweight title belt.

Spence, 31, the WBC and IBF welterweight world champ, is 27-0 with 21 knockouts.

Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs) is an eight division world champion.
