Pacquiao arrives in LA for Vargas fight presser
Boxing’s most decorated fighter Manny Pacquiao arrived in Los Angeles a day before the press conference for his return fight against WBO welterweight world champion Jessie Vargas.
Pacquiao, boxing’s only eight-division world champion, will return to the sport six months after he initially said he’ll be retiring when he beat Timothy Bradley back in May.
Thomas & Mack Center, which is inside the campus of University of Nevada, Las Vegas, will host Pacquiao’s return fight.
Pacquiao was in the middle of his “Mexicutioner” run when he beat Erik Morales twice in their epic trilogy and it was in Thomas & Mack where he solidified his reputation as arguably the best knockout artist of his generation.
