• Manny Pacquiao live streamed his first training session for his Errol Spence Jr. fight
  • Fans didn't notice Pacquiao as he ran 
  • The Filipino legend is expected to train under Freddie Roach once again

Manny Pacquiao is getting in shape ahead of his highly-anticipated title fight against Errol Spence Jr.

A week after announcing his ring return on social media, Pacquiao has yet to officially begin his training camp. However, the world’s only eight-division titlist has let his followers know that he has already started doing light training on his own.

In a recent live stream on his official YouTube channel, Pacquiao could be seen sprinting in the streets. Normally, Pacquiao draws a crowd during his training sessions, but the Filipino boxing legend, who was wearing a face mask as he ran, managed to evade fans for a good couple of minutes.

Pacquiao is once again expected to be trained by his longtime coach Freddie Roach for the Spence fight.

Ahead of his pupil’s boxing comeback, Roach made a shocking declaration and challenged other top guys in the welterweight division to “line up” and face Pacquiao after Spence.

“If [Manny is] gonna continue in boxing, I want him to fight the best guys he can,” Roach recently told Boxing Scene. “We’re not looking for any stiffs or any easy fights or anything like that. We will fight anybody out there. If Floyd [Mayweather] doesn’t come, Errol Spence, all of them. Line them up.”

However, it appears that fans may not see Pacquiao inside the ring again after August as he recently told The Athletic that Spence “might be” the final fight of his career.

Despite the 11-year age difference, the older Pacquiao is confident that he is “faster and stronger” than Spence.

Spence, on the other hand, is coming in unbeaten and with the WBC and IBF welterweight titles under his name. Long before he and Pacquiao locked in for a superfight, “The Truth” has been vocal about his thirst to share the ring with the legendary “Pac-Man.”

According to Spence’s trainer Derrick James, a fight against Pacquiao is “beautiful” for the American’s career as not too many fighters are able to maintain their status like the 42-year-old.

“I think I’m excited,” James told Dallas News. “This is a legacy fight for Errol. This is beautiful for his career. Being a Dallas kid, we don’t remember [Hall of Famer] Curtis Cokes but this is a big fight for a local fighter.”

“Few fighters have been fighting at the [high] level of competition like Pacquiao,” he pointed out. “Pac is like [Bernard Hopkins], a 50-year old beating 20 somethings. You can’t take him soft. You got to focus.”
