The Pinoy boxer has been away from the ring for two years. His last fight was against American boxer Keith Thurman, where he won the super welterweight title. The belt went to the Cuban boxer following Pacquiao’s layoff. He was originally set to fight American boxer Errol Spence Jr. but the latter was forced to cancel it due to an eye injury.
