Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao burst into action on Monday in Los Angeles, as he ramped up his training for his August 21 bout against American Errol Spence Jr.

Pacquiao arrived in Los Angeles on Sunday, following a longer than usual flight that saw them return briefly to Manila as a passenger onboard their Philippine Airlines plane had a medical emergency.

He officially opened camp on Monday, doing his usual roadwork before heading to the Wild Card Gym to train with veteran coach Freddie Roach.

The "Pacman" gave a snippet of his training with Roach on Twitter.

According to a report from Steve Angeles, Pacquiao worked the mitts with Roach for eight rounds on Day 1 of his camp.

This will be Pacquiao's return to the ring after more than two years. The Philippine senator last fought in July 2019, outpointing another American in Keith Thurman to win the WBA (super) welterweight belt.
