Senator Manny Pacquiao and unified welterweight titleholder Errol Spence met face to face at the Fox studios in Los Angeles to promote their August showdown in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“There’s a lot of opportunities to pick, not an easy fight, but a much easier fight than compared to Errol Spence,” Pacquiao said. “But I decided to pick Errol Spence because I want to give a good fight to the fans.”
The T-Mobile Arena will host the PBC pay per view as Spence defends his WBC and IBF 147 titles.
“It’s a great opportunity especially coming from my accident, to fight Danny Garcia, and then I get the fight with Manny Pacquiao,” Spence said. “You had a lot of different guys saying that they were going to fight him next. To get that call asking if I want to fight a legend like Manny Pacquiao, I said, ‘Of course. Why not?’ I didn’t give it a second thought.”
Pacquiao vs Spence takes place Saturday, August 21 live in Las Vegas on PBC pay per view.
