Former world-boxing champion Manny Pacquiao is stepping back into the ring, taking on super welterweight champion Yordenis Ugás. Pacquiao – who is currently 42 years old and last fought back in 2019 – was originally supposed to spar with welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. However, Spence Jr suffered an eye injury, with Ugás filling in for Pacquiao’s return. Ugás currently holds a record of 26-4 record, including 12 KOs, while Pacquiao (62-7-2) no doubt still holds plenty in the tank, with his boxing career lasting over 20 years.
