Manny Pacquiao showcases speed and muscular physique heading into Errol Spence showdown

Pacquiao is looking the part as he heads into this welterweight title fight.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

It’s not often that you’ll find Manny Pacquiao as the underdog heading into a world title fight, but that exactly what we have here as the Filipino legend prepares to face a talented world champion in his physical prime in Errol Spence Jr. With Pacquiao going through camp to prepare himself for the August 21 battle we get some glimpses of him in camp, still looking plenty fast and strong which should only make for a better fight.

Here Pacquiao lights up the mitts with longtime friend and trainer Buboy Fernandez before taking off his shirt to reveal his shredded physique. There’s no question about it, for a 42-year-old fighter Pacquiao is still in relatively tremendous condition, but there is a question about how he’ll fare against a bigger, stronger opponent who has much less miles and maybe just as much boxing ability.

Lucky for us we’ll all get to see how things play out on fight night when Pacquiao and Spence meet in their Showtime PPV main event. We’ll, of course, be here with all the coverage you could ever need.
