Las Vegas NV: There are certain fights that everyone around the world is talking about and we got a good one happening on Saturday Night from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas as Manny Pacquiao takes on Keith Thurman for the WBA Welterweight title.
This is a very interesting matchup as you have two different styles and both guys want to prove they are the best in the welterweight division.
The main event is Boxing only Eight Division world champion and Philippine Senator Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao comes into the fight with a record of (60-7-2, 39 KOs) and in his last fight, he took down Adrien Broner in January 2019 also at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Pacquiao opponent Keith “One Time” Thurman is undefeated at (29-0, 22 KOs) & the defending WBA Welterweight Champion and in his last fight, Thurman took down Josesito Lopez also in January 2019 but this one was at the Barclays Center.
it is rare to see a legend in any sport keep going at what they do best and it is exciting to see and the big question is how much longer will they be going.
The fight will be live on FOX Pay Per View at 9PM Eastern with Kenny Albert, Lennox Lewis, Joe Goossen with ringside reporter Heidi Androl
On the studio show it will be Chris Myers, and Kate Abdo with a cast of current & former world champions in WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder, IBF Welterweight World Champion Errol Spence Jr., WBC Welterweight World Champion Shawn Porter, former two-division champion Danny Garcia & International Boxing Hall of Famer Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini.
Weigh-in & Staredown:
I think Manny Pacquiao wins the fight by decision and to be Boxing 9 time world champion and also puts pressure to get the rematch set with Floyd Mayweather.
