There were some rumors that the planned fight between Super WBA Welterweight World Champion Keith Thurman and boxing legend and World Champion Manny Pacquiao will not come to pass. You can set aside those rumors now as it has been officially confirmed through Premier Boxing Championship.
The 30-year old Thurman will meet the eight-division champion in a Welterweight Supremacy match. By Thurman’s own admission, he had been looking forward to a fight against Pacquiao for six years now. Luck struck when Pacquiao himself asked for the fight. This is inarguably the most important fight of Thurman’s career yet because beating Pacquiao not only earns him the World Championship title but also the accolade of beating a boxing legend.
Having defeated Adrien Broner in the ring in January, Pacquiao is in form right now. Even without the warmup that would have Pacquiao in form, he is a formidable opponent.
In a recent post-announcement interview with Thurman, the champion appeared confident to do to Manny Pacquiao “what he did to Oscar De La Hoya”, going as far as to say that the upcoming fight will be Pacquiao’s last.
