Manny Pacquiao vs. Keith Thurma

Manny Pacquiao vs. Keith Thurma Live : In the leadup to the Manny Pacquiao vs. Keith Thurman fight on Saturday, there has been plenty of speculation about Thurman’s viability as a future great, whether Pacquiao can still beat an elite fighter as he enters his 40s, and plenty of trash-talking between the two camps.

Pacquiao vs Thurman: Why it matters

The last time Thurman was in the ring, he found himself in a struggle vs. a veteran journeyman named Josesito Lopez. Thurman hadn’t fought the previous 22 months because of arm injuries, and in his big return, he was a massive betting favorite. But he nearly got knocked out in the seventh round. That has led to major questions about Thurman’s future and if he can return to being the great fighter he used to be.

“I got caught. I was in danger,” Thurman told reporters this month, remembering his troubles with Lopez. “I remember after I got caught, I got caught again. After I got caught again, shit, I got caught again. I got hit with three big shots that round. I told myself, ‘Dammit, you’d better get your hands up and move your feet. Only you know you’re OK. The whole world thinks you’re about to be knocked the fuck out. Let’s get out of this round and show them what kind of champion you really are.’”

Thurman (29-0, 22 KOs) made it to the end of the round and won the fight, which prompted him to say this week, “To me, it’s just evidence of how great I truly am.”

But Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, isn’t so sure. Last month, he told the Daily Dot that he’s seen evidence that the 30-year-old Thurman isn’t the same quality fighter he was when he was in his 20s.

“Thurman is definitely a good fighter, but you look at his last three fights,” Roach said. “He’s faded a little bit. He’s not doing quite as well. I’m not sure if he’s bored of the sport or if he’s not putting the hours in. You study tapes on him, and you can see the gradual slowdown.”

Thurman certainly could be a different (or worse) boxer since he was away from the ring for so long. But Pacquiao’s (61-7-2, 39 KOs) resurrection at the age of 40 is impressive. After losing to Floyd Mayweather in their mega-fight in 2015, Pacquiao has won four of his last five bouts against solid competition.

Even at his age, it’s telling that Pacquiao is the betting favorite. As of Friday, Pacquiao was -155), meaning you’d have to bet $155 on him to win $100, while Thurman was a slight +125 underdog.Sean Michael Ham/Mayweather Promotions

Pacquiao vs Thurman

Pacquiao vs Thurman : It’s not often world title challengers are the favorites going into a boxing match. Then again, Manny Pacquiao isn’t your typical challenger.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

For starters, the Filipino (61-7-2, 39 KOs) is a legend of the sport, a world champion in an unprecedented eight divisions who has beaten some of the best boxers of his generation.

Also, thanks to boxing’s patchwork quilt of sanctioning organizations and championship hierarchies, Pacquiao is technically a welterweight world champion going into Saturday night’s pay-per-view fight against Keith “One Time” Thurman.

Pacquiao is the “regular” WBA world titleholder at 147 pounds, having beaten Lucas Martin Matthysse in July 2018.

The undefeated Thurman (29-0, 22 KOs) is the “super” champion. He earned that status when he beat Danny Garcia in March 2017. Injuries kept him out of the ring for nearly two years, so the WBA kept the world title chase alive in his absence with the “regular” title.

So Pac Man is a champion, and so is Thurman. The latter has never lost, though, which makes him the man to beat when the two enter the ring Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

However, the 40-year-old challenger is still one of the most popular boxers alive, and he is likely the main reason people will tune in on Saturday night.

With a win, Thurman can ensure he’s both the main man and the main draw in his next fight.

Fight Info

When: Saturday, July 19 at 9 p.m. ET

Where: MGM Grand in Las Vegas

TV: Fox Sports Pay-Per-View ($74.99)

Live Stream: Fox Sports Pay-Per-View

Odds: Pacquiao -132 (bet $132 to win $100), Thurman +135 (bet $100 to win $135)

Odds are according to Oddschecker and updated as of Thursday at 7 a.m. ET.

Thurman’s advantages going into Saturday’s bout are obvious. He’s 10 years younger than Pacquiao, taller with a thicker frame and he has a two-inch reach advantage, (69″ to 67″, per BoxRec). When he’s at his peak, combining a strong jab with thunderous power shots and deft footwork, he can make proceedings lopsided.

But it’s possible we won’t see his peak Saturday. In his return to the ring in January, he spent the first few rounds beating up on a game Josesito Lopez, even scoring a knockdown in the second round.

The fight took a turn in the latter half, with Lopez wobbling Thurman in the seventh and generally making life difficult for him every round after that. In what was supposed to be a tune-up bout, the champion had to settle for a majority decision.

Instead of another tune-up, Thurman jumped at the opportunity to face Pacquiao. He’s made it his mission to get under his skin, saying he will “crucify” the Filipino and referencing his political career, per CBS Sports’ Brian Campbell:

Pacquiao has apparently been listening, but he’s kept his cool in the pre-fight buildup.

“The more Thurman talks, the more it will help me,” the veteran said, per ESPN’s Dan Rafael. “His words are motivating me and encouraging me to work even harder day after day.”

It’s hardly lightning-rod stuff, but that’s how Pacquiao tends to operate in the twilight of his career. Working with longtime trainer Freddie Roach, he needs to find a way to hit whatever counts for his peak to win Saturday. It’s hard to tell exactly where that is these days, considering Matthysse and his most recent opponent, Adrien Broner, didn’t offer him much resistance.

Pacquiao is a tricky southpaw who can counter a jab better than most and string together combinations. He’s looking to use his speed to create problems against his bigger opponent.

“Better for me, especially if you are going for the body,” Pacquiao said, per the Los Angeles Times‘ Norm Frauenheim.

If Pacquiao can find the vulnerabilities lurking in Thurman’s game the same way Lopez did, he has a good chance at pulling off the victory. He will have to be cautious as he goes about his business, though.

The Filipino has hit the canvas before, and Thurman is going to load up on the big punches if he feels himself falling behind.

However, there’s so much for Thurman to lose Saturday. A defeat will confirm the suspicions of those who believe he lost a step during his injury layoff or that his killer instinct is gone. It will take him out of the lucrative championship circuit, where potential megafights against Terence Crawford, Errol Spence Jr. and Shawn Porter await (the latter two are booked to fight in September, per The Athletic’s Lance Pugmire).

A win, however, and Thurman gets to tout a victory over a boxing legend as he makes his next move. Pacquiao might hang it up with another loss, but he’s showing few, if any, signs he wants to leave the sport behind. He didn’t do it after his undeserved loss to Jeff Horn in July 2017.

Beating Thurman would give him a chance for a big showdown with the aforementioned titleholders. Pacquiao might just keep fighting until someone in the sport forces him out.

Manny Pacquiao vs. Keith Thurman on FOX Sports PPV: How to watch, start time, odds and more

According to MyBookie.ag, Pacquiao is now the -160 favorite with Thurman in as a +140 underdog. A little over a month ago, Thurman was the favorite, but a shift took place once the promotion for the fight kicked into high gear. Some expected we could be looking at an even-money fight by Saturday, but it doesn’t appear as though we’ll get that.

Thurman is the WBA Super World Welterweight Champion while Pacquiao is the WBA Regular Welterweight Champion. This fight will unify the WBA titles.

Aside from unifying the WBA titles, this matchup will determine much more. The winner of this fight could be headed for a showdown with the winner of the Errol Spence Jr. vs. Shawn Porter bout that is scheduled for September 28. Spence is the IBF champion and Porter owns the WBC crown. If the winner of the two fights meet, they could unify three-fourths of the 147-pound title picture.

Beyond that, the fight is also significant because we’re moving close to the end of Pacquiao’s career. There are only so many performances left for the legend, so whenever he climbs in the ring, he is must-see TV. If he loses, especially by KO, it could spell the end of his career. If he wins, his status as an all-time great grows even more. It would not be an overstatement to say a victory over Thurman at this stage of Pacquiao’s career would be his biggest win ever.

At 40 years old, Pacquiao is a healthy 10 years older than Thurman. It is the largest age gap that Pacquiao has ever had over an opponent. It’s part of the reason many fans have some fear about Pacquiao’s chances of winning on Saturday night. Few welterweights in history have been able to compete on a championship level into their 40s.

Thurman has taken it upon himself to turn up the heat as it pertains to trash talk. He’s promised to end Pacquiao’s career, said that the Filipino icon has T-Rex arms, vowed to crucify him, and in the video below, Thurman says that Pacquiao is not a true welterweight or a technician in the ring.

It seems the trash talk has gotten under Pacquiao’s skin a little more than normal. Never one to trash talk himself, Pacquiao did tell me and Forbes’ Peter Kahn, that he felt the religious references were a “low blow.”

In the end, the banter will likely result in heightened interest for the fight.

We’ve talked about the possibility of the winner facing the man who emerges victoriously from the Spence-Porter bout, but Pacquiao is still likely holding out hope he can lure Floyd Mayweather Jr. out of retirement for a lucrative rematch. If Pacquiao defeats Thurman, his chances of meeting the level boss in a rematch will increase.

Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs), the secondary WBA champ, has shown a bit of a career resurgence as he’s claimed two consecutive victories after his controversial loss to Jeff Horn in 2017. The 40-year-old is once again being considered among the elite in the welterweight division,

and a win over Thurman would further cement his status as not only one of the all-time greatest, but the best to still be in action. Thurman, meanwhile, (29-0, 22 KOs) is consistently mentioned within pound-for-pound conversations, and taking down one of the more accomplished fighters of this generation would send a stern message to the rest of the stacked welterweight division.
