The legendary Manny Pacquiao - aka Pac Man - makes his return to the ring tonight, after a two-year break, to claim back his WBA Welterweight title from Cuba’s Yordenis Ugas.
Having beaten 22 world champions throughout his 26-year career, the 42-year-old Filipino will have taken a world championship title in four different decades if he beats Ugas tonight. Pacquiao is also listed in the top ten fighters who have made the most per punch.
Ugas, 35, has an equally impressive repertoire having beaten 11 of his previous 12 opponents. He was elevated to WBA (Super) champion status last time he and Pacquiao battled it out because Pac-Man failed to defend the title within the required timeframe.
The night’s events kick off on Saturday 21st August at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada at 12pm local time, meaning it could be a late night for any Brits watching it at home.
While some countries are offering a PPV service to watch the action, Pacquiao’s fans in his native country, the Philippines, get to watch it completely free - and there’s good news for Sky Sports subscribers in the UK too.
