Pacquiao begins his training camp in his homeland before flying over to the Wild Card gym in California for the fine tuning.

The welterweight scrap, with the WBC and IBF titles on the line, will take place on August 21 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Uploading a photo of some sparring, Pacquiao posted on Twitter: “Excited to be back at Wild Card Gym with coach Freddie!”

But his journey to the US wasn’t as straightforward as the boxer might have hoped.

Pacman boarded a flight from the Philippines to Los Angeles but the plane was diverted to Japan due to a medical emergency.

Pacquiao and his team were then forced to stay at Haneda airport for three hours before having to fly back to Manila.

And according to Rapples, the 62-7 fighter then boarded another plan to America on Sunday.

Spence jr. boasts a record of 27-0 with 21 knockouts and currently holds the WBC and IBF welterweight titles.

But Pacquiao was stripper of the WBA (Super) welterweight title, which he won in his last fight against Keith Thurman in 2019.

This was due to what the board deemed as ‘inactivity’.

The Ring Magazine also voted to have their title on the line, despite usually having the vacant belt contested only between their top two ranked fighters.
