Las Vegas- This Saturday night, Boxing legend Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KO’s) returns to the ring to face Keith “One Time” Thurman (29-0, 22 KO’s) live from the MGM Grand, with a fight time of 9:00 p.m. ET.
The bout is being billed as “Welterweight Supremacy,” with Manny Pacquiao holding the (regular) welterweight world title and Keith Thurman being the current (super) welterweight champion.
Pacquiao’s best days may undoubtedly be behind him, but at 40 year old, he still remains at the top of the sport. Since his loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr., Pacquiao has won four of his last five fights.
Thurman is one of the hardest punchers in the welterweight division. He won his last fight, a comeback fight, by majority decision over Josesito Lopez, who was able to hurt Thurman in that fight. Thurman will be looking to prove a point by beating Pacquiao Saturday night.
So, the only question worth asking is who wins Saturday night’s welterweight title fight? The family makes their picks.
