Las Vegas – In a few hours Keith “One Time” Thurman (29-0) finally gets his chance to add the legendary Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao (61-7-2) to his list of conquered foes. It would easily be the most precious feather in his cap.

Thurman has said a lot of things leading up to this fight; from hurling insults to singing Pacquiao’s praises all in the same sentence. Round zero goes to the WBA super champion. He won the verbal battle, for sure, and it’s safe to say he’s gotten under Pacquiao’s skin more than one time (pun intended). But can he capitalize on that proverbial point and win the war?

Will ‘One Time’ be the Last Time for Pacquiao?

As long as Manny Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39) continues to defy age and keeps winning, the narrative isn’t going to change each time he is set to face another young, hungry and determined opponent.

Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman (29-0, 22 KOs) easily fits that bill. The unbeaten WBA welterweight champ is next in line to attempt to slay the legend. He vows to do nothing less.

Adrien “The Problem” Broner definitely had some problems with some people heading into Wednesday’s final press conference for his much-anticipated bout with Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Arena this weekend.

“I’m pissed off, for real. Coming here doing this press conference in this little ass room,” Broner announced to the media gathered at the David Copperfield Theater. “They didn’t spend money on our shit like our fight ain’t nothin. I see what they’re trying to say, but they won’t do this shit anymore after I win this fight,” Broner added.

Like a blur, a flurry of five, six, eight-punch combinations. Most have been given fair warning, and blokes like Ricky Hatton even swore he had studied and knew what was coming. “Right hook, roll under,” The Hitman waxed philosophical. Fighters like him should be scaring the shit out of you. Most meteors like the one tattooed on his left forearm will when it connects. But then he flashes his smile and swindles you with his humility. Just enough to make you think he can’t be that vicious in the ring.

Until boom!

Millions of pupils dilate with fatal anticipation. Another legendary boxer’s ass kisses the canvas. Barrera, Morales, Mosley, Bradley, Cotto, and yes Hatton too. Not sure what happened to what he studied regarding that right hook and roll under, but he ate a left cross and graduated in round 2. Last names of first ballot Hall of Famers and some of the greatest pugilists in history. Victims. Or as Shaq likes to call em, “barbecue chicken.”
