Keith Thurman and Manny Pacquiao reach a deal for a summer WBA clash!
UPDATE: MAY 11, 2019
Keith Thurman vs Manny Pacquiao for the WBA Super title is a done deal for July 20 in Las Vegas!
3kingsboxing.com has learned WBA welterweight super champion Keith Thurman is very close to finalizing a deal to face WBA regular champion Manny Pacquiao for the summer.
We previously reported July 13 was the target date, however, that has changed. Additionally, the fight is likely to take place in Las Vegas. This will be a huge summer showdown as Thurman will look to show he’s 100 percent back from his injuries.
Recent news regarding Pacquiao involved him signing a “mystery” contract with MMA organization RIZIN. This has many believing a fight with Keith Thurman would be off the table.
However, it turned out he was just involved in promoting a fellow Filipino fighter who would face Tenshin Nasukawa at RIZIN 15.
With that behind us, Pacquiao will now focus on possibly pulling off a MAJOR upset at the age of 40!
3kingsboxing.com will keep you updated as confirmation of the finalized deal is expected soon.
