Pacquiao vs. Thurman - The hour of truth!

The night from Saturday to Sunday is here! WBA Super Champion Keith Thurman (29-0-0, 22 Ko's) meets reigning "regular" WBA World Champion Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas (Nevada, USA) (61-7-2, 39 Ko's). The upcoming fight between the previously unbeaten welterweight titleholder and the Filipino boxing legend is already expected by the boxing fans with excitement and great anticipation.

Manny Pacquiao, now 40 years old, is a guarantor of big fights and sold-out houses, and the champion has proved his worth several times in eight weight classes. Now it comes against the ten years younger American Keith Thurman for possibly the last big payday.

This in turn left in the past few days and weeks hardly an opportunity to be effective in the media scene. "Even though Manny (Pacquiao) is a legend, I will dominate him and prove I own the future! The Fight will not make ends meet! "Thurman recently told journalists.

Manny Pacquiao, on the other hand, presented himself much quieter and more restrained than his soon-to-be opponent. However, he left so much to his longtime coach, Freddie Roach, the floor. Roach: "I expect a simple fight for Manny! Keith (Thurman) is a good boxer, but he does not have the class of Manny. "

In addition to the mandatory Ballyhoo, the international experts have still not come to terms with the choice of a favorite before the World Cup duel. While some predict the routine and explosiveness of "Pac-Man" as a key to victory, other experts are telling the ten-year-younger Keith Thurman of greater boxer intelligence.
