The crass, trash-talking American can’t seem to put a lid on his statements after yet another badmouthing of Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao. 

CALIFORNIA, USA — Keith Thurman Jr. is at it again. The crass, trash-talking American can’t seem to put a lid on his statements after yet another badmouthing of Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao. During an Instagram live video, the undefeated fighter once again called out the Pacman on his “retirement” plans. Thurman has vowed to be the one to fore Pacquiao into retirement since the two’s press con in New York last May. He hasn’t kept mum since. In the video, shot inside a private plane headed for a scheduled inteview together with his eight-division world champion foe, “One Time” Thurman said that  Pacquiao is \”easy work.”The American fighter also showed disrespect when he looked past his upcoming fight with Pacquiao and saying he is more concerned with fighting Errol Spence. “I’m ready for Spence or everybody” he said after he dispatches of the fighting Senator.According to those in his inner circle, however, Pacquiao got pissed when Thurman took a line out of the Bible.Pacquiao, in a recent interview chose to let the comments from his opponent on July 20th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, just slide. But insiders say that Pacquiao “got pissed” at the constant trash-talk of the younger American, getting irked at the comments made by Thurman that he will “crucify” Pacquiao. 

For now, what Thurman might expect, as repercussion of his words, a more aggressive Pacquiao. And the latter’s strength and conditioning coach Justin Fortune expects the American fighter to back pedal if he gets a taste of that famous punching speed and power from the Pacman. “Yeah. They all do. They all do. Listen, Thurman can’t stay in the pocket with Manny — he’s too fast, he’s too strong. So logically, or fight-wise, if he wants to win this fight, he has to try to box him. We plan for both,” he said.

Ruiz downs Ortiz in heavyweight title eliminator

Andy Ruiz Jr. is slowly getting back as a heavyweight title contender after dominating Luis Ortiz.

The former unified heavyweight world champion knocked down “King Kong” Ortiz thrice to win via unanimous decision.

Next in line for the boxer who had one of the greatest upsets in boxing history is to face the former WBC king Deontay Wilder.

Wilder, who has been out of the picture since being destroyed by Tyson Fury in their rematch, will make a return to face Robert Helenius before eventually fighting the Mexican Ortiz.

The Ruiz-Wilder bout is a big chance to happen as both heavyweights are under the boxing promoter Al Haymon.

“We’re always looking for great exciting fights we love to give the fans,” said Wilder, who was on ringside during the Ruiz-Ortiz clash.

“So if that’s what is lined up next, I’ve got to handle business and after that, we can get it on.”

KSI returns and wins two fights in one night

Famous YouTuber KSI returned to the boxing ring after some time and he announced it by dominating two fights in one night.

Olajide Olatunji, his real name, first defeated Swarmz, a Briton rapper who happened to be his friend as well. The match ended in the second round and then after several other matches, KSI stepped up once more to TKO Luis Alcaraz Pineda, a true professional boxer.

But despite these wins KSI’s pro record remains at 1-0 as both fights were not given a green light as officially-sanctioned bouts.

One of the undercards in the event was Salt Papi, a Tiktok star that is a Filipino. He won easily in his first fight with an impressive knock out.

Salt Papi became famous for his fake run videos and since then went on a fitness journey that led to his boxing debut

Philippines left with no boxing world champion

2022 is not yet over but we’ve already seen the fall of our boxing world champions one
by one.
And with Mark Magsayo failing to defend his WBC featherweight belt in his first title
defense, it left the Philippines with no more current world champion in the sport.
Magsayo went through a heartbreaker with a split decision loss against Rey Vargas of
Mexico.
Rene Mark Cuarto also lost the IBF minimumweight title to another Mexican boxer
named Daniel Valladares.
Just last month, it was Nonito “The Filipio Flash” Donaire who surrendered his WBC
Bantamweight belt to the Japanese Monster Noaya Inoue, his second defeat to the now
unified bantamweight champion.
Jerwin Ancajas likewise suffered the same fate while Johnriel Casimero got his WBO
bantamweightbelt stripped from him due to violation in the weight cut guidelines.
Now, the questions afloat are who will be the next Pinoy champion? Will there be
another Pinoy champ?
With Manny Pacquiao retired from professional boxer after losing his belt as well to
Yordenis Ugas, who will be the next boxer that will give the Philippines back its pride?
Up and coming star Eumir Marcial is on the list after capturing the bronze medal in the
Tokyo Olympics. Magsayo is not off the chart as well as he is still young, it’s just a
matter of bouncing back.
