Eight-division world champion; Philippine Senator; legend. Manny Pacquiao is set to return to the ring tonight for a showdown with undefeated Super WBA Welterweight Champion Keith Thurman in Sin City. It’s one of the most eagerly anticipated fights of the year, and you can watch it all with our guide to getting a Pacquiao vs Thurman live stream.
Future Hall-of Fame inductee Pacquiao may now be the wrong side of 40, but recent wins confirm him as a relevant and explosive boxer at this weight. Meanwhile the speed and power of Thurman makes him arguably the most naturally talented boxer in a hugely competitive division.
Manny Pacquiao vs Keith Thurman: when and where?
The undercard to the Manny Pacquiao vs Keith Thurman fight is set to start today (Saturday, July 20) at 9pm ET, 6pm PT – so that’s 2am GMT on Sunday morning. We’re expecting the headliners to head to the ring no earlier than around 12am midnight ET, 9pm PT, 5am GMT.
All the action will be taking place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs) comes into the fight off the back of an impressive points decision victory over Adrien Broner back in January which saw Pac Man defend his WBA (regular) welterweight title.
Thurman’s (29-0, 22 KOs) last appearance in the ring also came in January with a majority decision over Josesito Lopez. It was an understandably rusty display for Thurman, as it marked the end of a near-two-year layoff for the American thanks to injuries.
Pacquiao is no stranger to giving up height and reach, and his opponent on Saturday will again hold the advantage in both attributes, but it’s Thurman’s speed and power that will be worrying the veteran who is ten years his senior.
