Arguably the greatest to ever do it, the man they call Mike Tyson is not ruling out the possibility of a total upset when Manny Pacquiao challenges WBC, IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence on August 21 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Mike Tyson knows what he’s talking about, so I don’t think betting against him is wise…Mike Tyson Posts Floyd Mayweather ‘Racial Slur’ Video.
Pacquiao, now 42-years-old and boxing’s only eight division world champion, has been on the outside looking in since winning a twelve round split decision over Keith Thurman in July of 2019. In January of the same year, Pacquiao dominated Adrien Broner over twelve rounds.
However, Pacquiao’s camp members believe Spence is not the same fighter after suffering injuries in a car accident in 2019. Spence returned to the ring back in December, with a dominant twelve round unanimous decision over mandatory challenger Danny Garcia.
Tyson is backing Pacquiao’s movement to create some problems for the younger champion, warning Spence he could be ‘messed up’ by Manny.
“It’s going to be a good fight. You can’t rule out Pacquiao because he beat Thurman. I think Pacquiao, he beat Keith Thurman. Pac can move and sh!t, and that can mess you up, that’s what f—s everybody up, he’s all over the place,” Tyson told ES News.
