The MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas has hosted some of the most exciting fights over the years. It’s chosen as the venue for most big showdowns. The next major event in MMA is set to take place in July with Manny Pacquaio vs. Keith Thurman.
The challenge for the WBA World Welterweight Championship was issued by the Regular WBA Welterweight Champion Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao, and Thurman accepted. In the boxing world, Pacquiao holds a prominent position being the only eight-division world champion. His fellow fighters commend him for being the best out there. So it was natural that Thurman would take this as a chance to solidify his boxing career by beating a boxing legend.
And he’s determined to do just that. Despite having massive respect for the 40-year old Filipino, Thurman believes the upcoming fight will be the last appearance of him.
Pacquiao’s last encounter in the ring was against Adrien Broner in January – a fight which he won. Similarly, Thurman earned a win against Josesito Lopez in January. Both champions have had plenty of time to recover and train since then. Catch the exciting Manny Pacquiao vs Keith Thurman on FireStick with this guide.
