Their faceoff could be the highlight fight of the summer.

WBA Super Welterweight Title Fight - Manny Pacquiao vs. Keith Thurman

Date: Saturday, July 20th, 2019

Venue: MGM Grand Garden Arena, Paradise, Nevada

Manny Pacquiao
Even for those who are not much of a boxing fan, they still would know a thing or two about boxing icon Manny Pacquiao. While everybody knows that he no longer has the same monstrous punching power that he did when he was in his prime, the now 40-year-old boxer from the Philippines is still deemed to be one of the most technically sound fighters in the world. After all, he won four of his last five fights.

He scored a TKO win over Lucas Matthysse mainly thanks to his outstanding fighting technique. He followed that up with beating Adrien Broner, and now Pacquiao is getting ready to take on Thurman.

Pacquiao is expected to rely on his angles and movement to keep Thurman off balance and avoid getting hit with one of his heavy punches. While Pacquiao is indeed a great boxer, will his performance be enough to bring down one of the most talented opponents he will have faced in recent years come Saturday?

Keith Thurman
Thurman is considered to be one of the hardest punchers in the welterweight division.
Keith Thurman is 29-0-1 all time, and he appeared to be just doing fine when he returned last January. Nicknamed "One Time" for his formidable knockout power, Thurman unfortunately got into a car accident that cost him two years of his promising career. However, after he recovered from all the injuries he sustained and trained to get back into his fighting shape, Thurman beat down Josesito Lopez to retain his WBA (Super) welterweight title.

To Thurman, he says his victory over Lopez was his "tune-up" for his upcoming fight against Pacquaio. There is no doubt he has a good chance to win, especially with his strength and size advantage over Pacquiao. Only the boxing ring can tell in the end whether power and strength will be enough to overthrow the veteran Pacquiao.

Keith Thurman, one of the hardest punchers in the welterweight division, will definitely use his strength and size as his main advantages in this bout. He is expected to keep Pacquiao at a distance using his jab and dictate where the action happens in the ring. Note that in his last loss to Jeff Horn, Pacquiao lost in a decision due to the fact that Horn used his size to become the aggressor in the fight.

While the numbers may point to favor Thurman in many categories, it still cannot be overlooked when it comes to Pacquiao's incredible experiences and achievements in the ring. He's been knocked out only once since 1999, so most people expect this upcoming fight has higher chances of reaching the full 12 rounds. If that happens, it could give Pacquiao, a technical master noted for his ability to calculate his rhythm and manage a fight, the edge in case it goes to a decision.

These elite-ranked welterweight boxers shall clash fists in Las Vegas on Saturday, July 20, 2019, with the WBA supremacy on the line.

At age 40, this could possibly be the final fight for Pacquiao. On the other hand, Thurman is just 30 years old and is on the quest to put his name on the top ranks in the boxing world.

On one corner of the ring Pac Man will have all the experience, while on the other Thurman has the youth card and holds an undefeated record.

The bookmakers cannot really determine the outright favorite to win the fight. However, according to most Manny Pacquiao vs Keith Thurman betting tips, Pac Man still has what it takes to deliver victory. Even if he's already 40, such sheer will and strong determination puts Pacquiao ahead with 1.68 odds to beat Thurman. Meanwhile, Thurman has an inch and a half height and 2-inch reach advantage to Pacquiao. His undefeated record of 22 Kos and physical advantage gives him the value of 2.20 to beat Pac Man.

This match will be held tomorrow and I did not know and I did not hear about it. If this site does not exist,
i did not know that tomorrow will be a nice match. I suppose it's worth betting on him if he has a beautiful odd. I hope it will be a serious match with good fighting.

Not interested in this sport, but from what it looks like,it will be a game,
that will draw many bettors Smile
It is a popular sport for betting, and when a match like this is advertised,
it draws even more in. I would go with the low odds Smile

A fighter way past his prime, against one recovering after a serious accident. I have my doubts if this fight will be a big thing like the Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight four years ago. That there is no mention of the price money is suspicious in itself.

Unibet and betsafe according to the screenshots above, are taking bets,
so it looks like the real thing. Real fight, fixed or not Smile
some people will bet on it. But you seem to have info on the fighters.
I dont know which one is which, but now i would bet with the one,
that is past his prime. Not an easy sport to compete when you are recovering from
a serious accident.

it's rather strange that I see names that are familiar to me. Although I don’t really like boxing, in any case I know these names .... and so it seems to me that the announcement of this fight should appear on sports websites .... but for some reason I don’t I see nowhere such announcements ... probably the fight will be interesting ... and in my feeling the pokyao should win
 CALICUL20/07/2019 14:02:24 GMT
I like the box when the match is fine... If Don King was involved then that's not good in the majority of cases. Here i do not know if he is but i like the matches that are spectacular. This sport produces a lot of money and has to be a show not a fake circus. We will see today.

I do not follow professional boxing as I did when I was younger but I advise everybody to bet AGAINST Pacquiao here. He is just a shell of his former self, he has nothing to offer now - being old and slow makes a significant dent on his game...
 shokaku21/07/2019 07:04:53 GMT
Manny Pacquiao won with a split decision after 12 rounds of boxing. Two of the judges had Manny Pacquiao ahead, while one judge did see Keith Thurman as the better boxer. I love the smell of a rematch in the morning.
 pajalnick21/07/2019 12:47:35 GMT
I felt that Piacao would win because he had a lot more experience in a boxing career ... and his opponent’s boastful statement didn’t lead to anything ... I heard something like that ... the challenger tries to cheer himself up with a loud statement, but in the end loses. ... I had the idea to put money on the Filipino Victory, but for some reason I did not do it ... very sorry ... I could have won
 CALICUL24/07/2019 14:07:21 GMT
If there is a rematch, i think this time the young player will win because has learned a lot from this game and the experience will be much better. Manny Pacquiao will be a few months older and will not resist so much. He should have lucky punches to win again.

Judging because the Victory was awarded by a split decision, then of course this fight was about the same for both fighters ... and of course if there is a rematch then both fighters will have a chance to win ... and maybe the Judges will be slightly predisposed to give victory to this again to another fighter, if of course there will again be approximately equal fight
 CALICUL27/07/2019 14:46:26 GMT
Any fight may be different. There are no fights that are always about equal because any match is different and it can end with the victory of each boxer. A rematch greatly helps Manny Pacquiao's rival because he will know a lot better what to do and he is much younger.
