Whatever Keith Thurman’s true intentions are, he’s definitely done his part in hyping up his “dream match” with Manny Pacquiao.

Whether he’s simply playing the heel to drum up interest for the pay-per-view audience or his aggressive verbal jabs are a preliminary part of his gameplan, Thurman (29-0, 22 KOs), the WBA ‘super’ welterweight world champion, has definitely generated a lot more drama and interest for his July 20 bout with the future Hall of Famer, Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs).

Three reasons why Keith Thurman will retain his undefeated record against Manny Pacquiao

Thurman time

Keith Thurman and Manny Pacquiao are set to go toe-to-toe in Las Vegas in July with the WBA (Super) welterweight title on the line and boxing fans will be eagerly awaiting the outcome of the bout which promises so much. Thurman will be looking to retain his perfect record of 29-0 (1) whilst Pacquiao will be looking to show the world he still has plenty left to give, even at the ripe age of 40.

Fans can bet on Thurman v Pacquiao right now ahead of the fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, with Thurman odds on currently (8/11) and Pacquiao just over evens (11/10.) Since Pacquiao’s controversial defeat to Jeff Horn in 2017, the Filipino has won both of his fights, which indicates he is still a force to be reckoned with, but Thuram will provide stern opposition and we’ve identified three reasons why the American can come up trumps against Pac-Man.

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.

On Friday afternoon, WBA welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman (28-0, 22 KO’s) and contender Josesito “Riverside Rocky” Lopez (36-7, 19 KO’s) weighed in ahead of their fight. Thurman will face Lopez inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and the match will air live on FOX.

This fight marks the end of what will be nearly a two-year layoff for Thurman, who last saw action in March of 2017 when he won a unanimous decision over former champion Danny Garcia. Lopez isn’t to be taken lightly, as he has been in the ring with the likes of Canelo Alvarez, Marcos Maidana, Andre Berto, and Jessie Vargas, while holding victories over Victor Ortiz and Mike Dallas Jr.

On Saturday night, March 7, interim WBA welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman defeated former multi-division world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero over 12 entertaining rounds on the inaugural version of NBC’s “Premier Boxing Champions”.

From the outset of the match, it was apparent that Thurman’s speed and power was going to be a big factor, as he was able to establish an early edge over southpaw foe. Guerrero remained patient and kept pressing forward, but he simply couldn’t get into enough of a groove to establish control.
