Eight-division World Champion and Philippines Senator Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39KOs) resumed sparring at the Wild Card Gym in LA on Tuesday, two days after his press conference with Errol Spence (27-0, 21KOs) to promote their much-anticipated showdown at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 21.

Pacquiao, who returned to LA last week for his grueling final six weeks of training camp, shook off two-years worth of ring rust against two taller sparring partners tasked to mimic Spence; Maurice Lee (12-1, 5KOs) and Alexis Rocha (17-1, 11KOs), both southpaws and listed at 5’10”. Pacquiao has been putting in work at the Wild Card and has impressed his trainer Freddie Roach and observers with his conditioning despite his two-year layoff from boxing. After his initial sparring last Thursday, Pacquiao did six rounds on Tuesday, four with Rocha, two with Lee.
