Pound for pound rated Errol Spence has been forced to pull out of next week’s mega fight with Manny Pacquiao due to injury.

A retinal tear on his left eye.

A significant injury that will likely see him sit out into well into 2022 while he rehabilitates.

Pacquiao has said the following on Twitter of the news:

Speedy recovery indeed.

No doubt he will be back stronger, like he always does, Spence.

Pacquiao, for his part, if he gets another win, continues to find himself in a strong position in the sport.

Big fights will be there for him once again into 2022 if he wins next week.
