The Pacquiao-Thurman fight will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and will pit two WBA welterweight title holders against each other for the right to claim who the real champion is.
This is a great opportunity for Thurman the undefeated welterweight champion who was widely considered the best young champion in the division before his two-year layoff due to injuries that required surgery an recovery time.
Both fighters fought in January of 2019. Pacquiao had an outstanding one-sided victory over Adrien Broner winning a unanimous decision, while Thurman fought a game Josesito Lopez in his return to the ring to shake the cobwebs off. Thurman was stunned in the seventh round but went on to win a split decision.
This will be the most dangerous opponent the 40-year-old Filipino Senator has fought in years. This is a great opportunity for Thurman to become a star as he headlines his first PPV event but he must put on an impressive performance to capture the attention of the casual boxing fan.
