It’s that time of the year again, the time where we can all get excited about seeing a big-time boxing match take place in our lives. This Saturday night in Las Vegas, there will be a familiar face in the ring that we’ll be watching do battle, as Manny Pacquiao will be taking on a contender in Jessie Vargas.
After the disaster that was the fight with Floyd Mayweather last year, it seemed as if the great career of Pacquiao had come to an end. However, in the back of our minds we all knew that he might not want to go out like that and that was indeed the case. Earlier this year it was announced that he would indeed be making his return to the ring, with Vargas being the one to welcome him out of that short retirement.
Despite being the heavy favorite in this fight on Saturday night, this might not be a walk in the park for Pacquiao. Vargas isn’t just some slouch that’s walking into the ring against one of the greatest of all-time, as has the punching power to make this return for the Filipino star a very unceremonious one. There is a lot more intrigue to this fight on Saturday than maybe some are giving it credit for.
There are just some boxing bouts that you don’t wanna miss, and it’s pretty safe to say that despite the loss to Mayweather, this Pacquiao battle on Saturday night will be just as much of a marquee event as his others.
