It’s a big night for boxing in Sin City. Tonight (Saturday, July 20th) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, legendary eight-division boxing champion Manny Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs) challenges Keith Thurman (29-0-1 NC, 22 KOs) for Thurman’s WBA “super” welterweight title.

Pacquiao is coming off a very comfortable unanimous decision win over Adrien Broner in January. One week after Pacquiao’s dominant win, Thurman had a less-than-dominant showing against Josesito Lopez, as “One Time” struggled to a majority decision. It was certainly a bit wider than the results suggest, but he was hurt by Lopez multiple times in what was his first bout in 22 months. You could chalk it up to ring rust, or perhaps a sign that Thurman’s injury issues are more worrisome than first thought. Meanwhile, for the 40-year-old Pacquiao, Thurman is arguably the best opponent he has faced since losing to Floyd Mayweather Jr in 2015. While Pacquiao has fared well against a faded Lucas Matthysse and the inconsistent Broner, Thurman is definitely a step-up in competition and it’s a really difficult fight to call as a result.
