Manny Pacquiao Changed His Mind On Fighting Spence Jr After Seeing Him Fight Says Trainer Derrick James
Errol Spence Jr’s trainer Derrick James believes Manny Pacquiao changed his mind about fighting Errol after he saw how good he was when defeating Mikey Garcia in 2019.
Derrick is still hopeful a fight can be agreed with the Filipino superstar but doesn’t believe Manny fancies his chances against his fighter Spence Jr.
‘I think it’s a possibility. It could happen next year. Manny came to Dallas when Errol fought Mikey and he said he wanted to fight the winner’ Derrick James told FightHub
‘But when he (Pacquiao) saw how good Errol looked, he was like ‘Oh’. He came to the fight specifically to fight the winner but I think he changed his mind when he got in the ring. Manny Pacquiao has been saying he wants to fight Errol. That’s cool’
Errol Spence Jr is the current IBF and WBC Welterweight champion and Pacquiao the WBA Champion. Terence Crawford is the other champion of the welterweight division with the WBO world title.
