Former world champion Shakur Stevenson shared his thoughts on the upcoming bout between WBC / IBF welterweight title holder Errol Spence and legendary veteran Manny Pacquiao.
“Pacquiao may not have fought a lefty in a while, but he’s faced a lot of fighters throughout his career. I’m pretty sure he has to handle Spence’s style, but Errol is bigger, he has a range of hands. Unless Spence misses out on his recklessness, it must be an easy fight for him.
I think Pacquiao needs to use speed and timing. Manny has decent timing and speed. I believe he will use his speed and try to start earlier than Spence, as Errol is younger, stronger and needs to be in better shape for the fight.
It seems to me that in the course of the fight everything will look very disgusting for Pacquiao. So he should try to start as fast as he can and create an advantage on the scoresheet, “said Shakur Stevenson.
