Manny Pacquiao’s Team Reacts To Early Betting Odds For Errol Spence Jr. Fight
Manny Pacquiao’s team has given a response to the early betting odds for “PacMan” vs. Errol Spence Jr.
Pacquiao recently announced that he will share the ring with Spence on August 21. The bout will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada. Spence holds the WBC and IBF Welterweight Titles, while Pacquiao is the WBA “Champion in Recess.”
The early betting odds have already surfaced. Spence is a big favorite at -450, while Pacquiao sits at +350.
During an interview with BoxingScene.com, Manny Pacquiao Promotions’ President Sean Gibbons said he disagrees with how wide the oddsmakers have the fight.
“You know it’s like this, it is one heck of a long shot but I don’t think the books realized that Manny Pacquiao isn’t a normal human being. He is focused, he is coming to win, he’s going to figure it out in his mind and if for some reason he doesn’t – it is not because he wasn’t prepared or wasn’t trying.”
Gibbons went on to say that he feels Spence has lost a step since his 2019 Ferrari crash.
“I don’t think Errol Spence is what he was before the car wreck. I really don’t. He was pretty easy to figure out at that time. The Senator just has to get inside of the long jab because Errol likes to control the distance and if he can do that then he is going to have a lot of success. The Senator has very fast, deceiving feet and that is what people don’t realize and what Keith Thurman didn’t realize. The feet move fast and get in position and boom!”
