This is an exhibition bout and marks Pacquiao’s first fight since retiring.

Manny Pacquiao’s Betting Outlook vs Yoo

Pacquiao returns to the ring after a bid for the presidency in his native Philippines did not pan out. This fight is for charity and the fund allocated will go towards a Ukraine relief effort and to help impoverished Filipinos.

Pacquiao has boxed professionally since 1995 and has been in world title fights since 1998.

The six-round middleweight clash will be followed by another exhibition bout for Pacquiao already booked for January. He is not wasting any time since returning from his last pro bout on August 2021.

Aged legends getting on the exhibition circuit is becoming more common nowadays ala Floyd Mayweather.

The eight-weight division world champion is one of the most accomplished fighters ever. So it makes sense why Pacquiao is such a massive betting favorite.

DK Yoo’s Betting Outlook vs Pacquiao

Yoo is a fighting coach and YouTuber who will be the partisan favorite in this contest. He has in past immersed himself in boxing, wushu, and judo.

DK Yoo took part in a six-round boxing bout against a former UFC veteran and managed to go the distance while being outmatched in terms of physical frame and combat experience. Although he did not get his hand raised, the bout was an exhibition ergo unofficial and nothing went on a record.

The recent training camp preparations of Yoo have brought him to the world-renowned Wild Card Gym where Pacquiao trained for many big fights.

Both are 43 years old but Yoo does bring in a notable size advantage in this fight to answer for Pacquiao’s chasm-sized gap in overall skill.

Pacquiao vs Yoo Prediction

This is a fight that Yoo does not even seem to think he has any chance of winning. The question becomes does Pacquiao treat it as a light sparring session and carry the hugely inexperienced opponent to a decision?

He seems to not be focusing on securing a knockout at all and described a stoppage win as unnecessary and reiterated this is all for charity reasons.

I see value in seeking out prop bets on this fight not going the distance and Pacquiao getting the decision.

Pick: Manny Pacquiao (-1000)
