Manny Pacquiao could defeat Errol Spence Jr, claims Felix Trinidad

The welterweight pair are preparing for the potential fight of the year.

Felix Trinidad believes that Manny Pacquiao is in with a chance of beating Errol Spence Jr.

Pacquiao is coming back into competitive action as a 42-year-old ‘champion in recess’ but will not be defending any belt in the August bout.

However, 31-year-old Spence will put his IBF and WBC welterweight straps on the line.

While that age difference has led many to favour Spence over the Filipino senator - coupled with his sabbatical - few are willing to discount Pacquiao given all he has achieved over the past three decades.

Trinidad believes that one way for Pacquiao to win would be to force a judges’ decision and hang in for all 12 rounds.

“If that fight goes to a decision…if It goes to decision… wow,” he waxed mesmeric to the DAZN Boxing Show.

“Manny Pacquiao has a chance to win by decision.”
