Thurman vs Pacquiao Live
Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman have each been the top welterweight in the world at one point in their careers. Both have also held multiple title belts in the division. Now, they’ll look to scale the mountain yet again in a deep and crowded division. It all goes down on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The WBA Welterweight title will be on the line as the 40-year-old Pacquiao (61-7-2) takes on the 30-year-old Thurman (29-0-1) in one of the most-anticipated matches on the 2019 boxing calendar. It’s a battle of contrasting styles, with Pacquiao still using his speed and boxing acumen at 40 and Thurman looking to take advantage of height, reach and power advantages. Pacquiao is the -165 favorite (risk $165 to win $100), up from an open of -140, while Thurman is a +142 underdog (risk $100 to win $142) in the latest Pacquiao vs. Thurman odds. Before you make your Pacquiao vs. Thurman picks for Saturday night’s must-see match, listen to what SportsLine boxing expert Peter Kahn has to say.
Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Manny Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs) will face Keith Thurman (29-0, 22 KOs) for his WBA welterweight super title in what will be one of the last important fights in the Filipino’s legendary career.
Pacquiao shouldn’t need an introduction with combat sports fans at this point. He’s one of the modern greats, has won titles from flyweight to super-welterweight, had legendary rivalries with Erik Morales and Juan Manuel Marquez and you might remember a clash with Floyd Mayweather Jr. being a rather anticipated fight.
