Mike tyson, former heavyweight champion, asked not to rule out Manny pacquiao in his fight against Errol spence by the welter belts of the CMB Y FIB that the American will defend.
“It will be a good fight,” he said to ES News. “You cannot rule out Pacquiao because he beat (Keith) Thurman. Pacman it moves, move, and other things, and that can bother you, that’s what bothers others, it’s all over the place ”.
It will be next August 21 when the Filipino and the American meet in the T-Mobile Arena from The Vegas, Nevada, on the return of Pacquiao after two years of inactivity.
In his last confrontation he defeated Keith thurman by split decision to make the second defense of the 147-pound belt of the AMB
. He previously beat Adrien broner by unanimous decision.
In early 2021, the AMB reported in a statement that they were removing Pacquiao as welterweight champion due to the inactivity he had, because during the coronavirus pandemic he dedicated himself to helping his country and promoting the Cuban Yordenis ugas as monarch.
However, for his contest against Spence was put on the table that AMB reinstated him as champion to fight for three of the four belts in the division, but the agency rejected that possibility.
