Manny Pacquiao, one of boxing’s living legends, returns to the ring at 42 years old in the early hours of Sunday morning when he faces Yordenis Ugas for the WBA world welterweight title.

Pacquiao had initially been set to face unbeaten champion Errol Spence Jr, however, the American was forced to withdraw after scans revealed damage to his eye.

On paper Ugas, who’s won 10 of his last 11 bouts, represents a significantly less fearsome opponent, however, the Cuban is still a very accomplished fighter and Pacquiao pledged not to take the challenge lightly.

“I want to tell the fans that I do not take Ugas lightly. It will be a great fight. It will be aggressive and I know I will make the fans happy,” he said.
