Mike Tyson has warned Errol Spence Jr to watch out for Manny Pacquiao’s movement ahead of their August boxing match.
Undefeated American Spence Jr, 31, has 11 years on Pacquiao and is widely seen as the pundits’ and bookies’ favourite ahead of their welterweight bout on August 21 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
But Tyson told ES News that the 42-year-old’s movement could be a tricky obstacle for the New York-born star.
He said: ‘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 s***, and that can mess you up, that’s what f***s everybody up, he’s all over the place.’
‘PacMan’ has not fought since beating Thurman by split decision back in July 2019, inflicting the first loss of the 32-year-old’s career and winning the WBA belt in the process.
