Boxing legend Pacquiao, 42, is preparing for his pay-per-view showdown against welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. on August 21 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

He will face his ‘biggest challenge’ yet in his bout against Spence, a fighter that’s taller and 11 years younger than him.
