Published

The longer the run, the better the legacy.

This is likely what the living legend, Manny Pacquiao story will be as he steps in for his 71st professional fight on July 20. And this most likely, will not be the last.

This is likely what the living legend, Manny Pacquiao story will be as he steps in for his 71st professional fight on July 20. And this most likely, will not be the last.

This time, he\’ll be showcasing his wares of yore against an unbeaten WBA super welterweight champion Keith Thurman Jr. at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Nevada with the younger champ\’s belt at stake.

Going to the tale of the tape, Pacquiao, known for his insane quickness and power has a record of 61 wins including 29 knockouts with seven defeats and two draws. Thurman has 22 KOs in 29 wins with no defeat and one no-contest is known for his heavy punches.

And in their fight in July, Pacquiao will bank on his experience to put down \”One Time\” in Las Vegas.

Manny Pacquiao doesn\’t need to be in a rush to come up victorious against the undefeated Thurman. Storming Thurman’s heavy punches will be the only concern for the eight-division world champion come fight night. Keeping his defense tight while not being careless like he used to, then it will be an easy W for Pacquiao. The Philippine senator has done proving us that age is just a number.

At 40, he can still finish a 12-round fight without his power diminishing, he is still a blur in the ring, improving his defense and becoming more of a counter puncher of late.

At 40, he can still finish a 12-round fight without his power diminishing, he is still a blur in the ring, improving his defense and becoming more of a counter puncher of late. So just like his previous fight against also a trash-talking Adrian Broner, ‘Pac-Man’ will taint the clean record of the American, going toe-to-toe with Thurman\’s penchant for punching hard, we might get to see an overhaul of that less-than-exciting bout against Broner.

As it may be hard for Pacquiao to record a TKO over Thurman, the disparity in speed and punches he\’ll be able to land will be the deciding factor in the match. While Thurman needs a knockout to probably end the legend’s night, or if we\’re going out on a limb, maybe Pacquiao\’s career.
Both, who fought last January, got the better end for their respective opponents. Manny dominating Broner while Thurman, who was a bit rusty after a 22-month layoff due to an injury, still earned a majority decision over Joselito Lopez.
The results paved way for their face-off as Pacquiao challenges Thurman\’s WBA super welterweight.
Despite being the underdog in the odds of the match, Pacquiao will likely turn the tables around with his quickness and combinations as we are treated see an entertaining fight with Thurman’s aggressiveness.
This is a make or break bout for both fighters. Let\’s just hope we get to see one of the most explosive fights of the year on July 20.

Israel Adesanya eager for another match with Alex Pereria

Days after the devastating defeat, the Last Stylebender made it clear that he would seek another fight with the Brazilian fighter who had beaten him twice.

“I hope he’s the champion. I’m just saying, hypothetically, if he isn’t, I’ll still fight him.I’m crazy, bro. I can beat him,” Adesanya said at The MMA Hour.

Adesanya is hungry for revenge that it doesn’t matter whether Pereira is still the champion because his return to the Octagon will be against the current UFC middleweight champ.

Pacquiao-Mayweather 2 officially in talks?

Pacquiao-Mayweather 2 officially in talks?

It has been made known that FLOYD MAYWEATHER is formally in discussions to face
Manny Pacquiao again in Las Vegas the following year with his record on the line.
After waiting for the two superstar adversaries to come to terms for half a decade, the
American defeated Pacquiao in 2015 over the course of 12 rounds.
But after eight years, the two boxing greats plan to resume their fight for a sequel to
their £500 million box office hit.
The negotiations between the two camps are being facilitated by Global Titans, who are
marketing Mayweather’s upcoming exhibition fight in Dubai.
We’re already working on Floyd and Manny Pacquaio, their CEO Uday Singh told
SunSport.
And a huge fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao might be announced
as early as December. A second match, not a demonstration.
After defeating former UFC champion Conor McGregor, 34, in 2017, Mayweather, 45,
decided to retire. Since then, he has fought four exhibition matches.
Additionally, he has never discussed going back to the ring to defend his pristine 50-0
record, especially versus Pacquiao, 43.
However, Mayweather’s perspective was altered after meeting Singh in Vegas prior to
his exhibition match with YouTuber Deji on November 13.
Since Manny Pacquiao was initially hesitant as well, Singh stated: “I’ve already had the
first meeting with Manny Pacquiao.
“It’s just egos, nothing else. But at the end of the day, Floyd’s a good guy, he’s a good
fighter.
“Once you’ve satisfied him with his purse, he’s happy to fight whoever. But it’s to his
interest as well, he said, ‘Why not? Let’s do it.’
“He hasn’t had a real proper fight since 2017, the last one was with Conor McGregor.”
Singh admitted he initially faced a fight to get Mayweather to agree to a pro bout
opposed to an exhibition, but won him over eventually.
He said: “Yeah, it was hard. But then again, at the end of the day he knows what people
want and he’s an entertainer.
