The blockbuster night of action to be beamed live to 120 million viewers worldwide, will feature Pacquiao for the 15th time inside the MGM Grand Arena as he battles undefeated Thurman to unify their world welterweight belts. And with the way his opponent has talked smack since the fight was announced, the eight-division world champion hopes the crass younger American can walk the walk. “I’m expecting a good fight and a toe-to-toe on Saturday would be good,” said Pacquiao in the final press con. “It’s been a while since the last time I’ve experienced something like that,” he added on his closing message.Thurman, who earlier said that he would be the one to “retire Manny,” saying at one point that he’ll “crucify” the Filipino boxing legend, added another verbal jab in the media presentation. 

“Manny’s a legend, but I’m not here to pat on the back, im here to fight him,” the 30-year-old American said explaining his mental games with the fighting Senator. “It puts me in the fight mode to know that he won’t do nothing with them little T-rex arms. He’s about to get beat up. I get to punch a senator and he’s gonna feel it,” said the unblemished fighter who sits at a 29-0 record with 22 KOs.But Manny, being Manny, was all smiles while his opponent continued the word war which seems only Thurman is the solitary party.“For me nothing is personal I just have to do my job,” said Pacquiao in response to the latest badmouthing from Thurman.“And in my job as a fighter I have to prove that I can still fight event at 40. That’s why I’m so motivated for this fight,” he added. For his part, Thurman ended the press con with some additional shade. “This is a tremendous fight, its one of the biggest fights of the year. Don’t be suprised if Manny Pacquiao goes night night,” he said. To which Pacquiao replied, “Well it’s easy to say but I don’t know if it’s easy to do in the ring.”Weigh-in for the fight will be held 4 AM Manila time.
