Fearless forecast: Pacquiao to deal Thurman\’s first pro defeat

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 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.
