Manny Pacquiao is bound to end his brief boxing retirement with a fight against Jessie Vargas on November 5 (November 6, Sunday, Philippine time). The fight, also known as the The Legend/The Champ, will happen at Thomas and Mack Centre at Las Vegas, Nevada. Sports fans are looking to see if Pacquaio still has that ‘killer instinct’ despite his age of 37. While age is just a number, it is one of the crucial factors for a great boxing performance. Vargas is currently WBO Welterweight title holder at a young age of 27.
