Errol Spence among those to speak as legend hints at retirement
He's one of the all time greats, broken almost every record there is to break and has defied the odds time and time again, but last night Manny Pacquiao's defeat to Yordenis Ugas left many asking whether time was up the Filipino icon.
Ugas, who stepped in as original opponent Spence suffered an eye injury, took victory via Unanimous Decision over 12 rounds.
Errol Spence was one of the first to speak on Twitter.
Quickly followed by another tweet maybe changing his stance.

Fellow veteran and future Hall of Famer Nonito Donaire spoke to reporters outside after witnessing the fight.
Good shit @YordenisUgas— Errol Spence (@ErrolSpenceJr) August 22, 2021
Pound for Pound contender Terence Crawford also poured praise on the champion, who he could fight later down the road, though is looking like a Shawn Porter clash is next.

Pacquiao has hinted at retirement now, but the world would still watch if he were to come out for one more roll.
