Pacquiao is training once again with Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach as he prepares to take on Errol Spence Jr. for the WBC, IBF, and Ring Magazine welterweight championships on August 21.

Cottto and Pacquiao fought in November 2009 where the Filipino ring legend captured a World title in a seventh weight class.

Pacquiao knocked Cotto down in the third and fourth rounds before taking a 12th round technical knockout win for the WBO and WBC Diamond welterweight championships.

Just a year later, Pacquiao became a World champion in eight divisions when he defeated Antonio Margarito for the vacant WBC super welterweight belt.
