    Default Manny Pacquiao vs Keith Thurman

    Manny Pacquiao vs Keith Thurman reportedly in ‘advanced talks’ for July 13/20 fight

    The welterweights are both signed to Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions

    Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman are in ‘advanced talks’ for a potential welterweight title fight, according to reports.

    July 13 is said to be the current target date if the bout comes to fruition, with July 20 another possibility. Either way, it will fit in between Pacquiao’s political commitments to the Filipino senate.

    It is claimed by FOX Sports’ Mike Coppinger that a deal is expected to be completed, although it is not yet done.

    Pacquiao, 40, was last seen comprehensively outboxing Adrien Broner on January 19.

    One week later, 30-year-old Thurman returned from a two-year lay-off to beat Josesito Lopez.



    While neither man has looked at their scintillating best of late, a meeting would still prove very intriguing.

    The match-up would pit the WBA’s secondary ‘regular’ title holder against the WBA’s major ‘super’ title holder and eliminate the superfluous extra belt.

    Elsewhere in the welterweight division, IBF champion Errol Spence is being lined up for a unification with WBC champion Shawn Porter.

    Hopefully this fight can happen. I actually think that Pacquiao beats him. I wouldn’t be surprised either way though

    How far has Thurman fallen? I am sure Keith beats Manny, although it would be a very entertaining bout.

    The writer doesn’t seem to understand how fake belts work. If a fake title holder meets a real title holder it does not eliminate the fake title. It becomes vacant for a different fake title holder to win. Of course we must remember that if the new fake title holder has light skin it will be counted as a major championship.

    I didn’t realize until recently you have the idea in your head that white fighters get more than black fighters. What was that posters name who was really racist?

    I remember the guy. Denilson, he was terribly irritating.

    I don’t have an idea white fighters get more, it’s a documented fact. In some ways it makes sense, with the media being 95+% white. Look at David Lemieux, you think if he was some black fella being such a crap fighter he would have made the money he’s made, been given the opportunities he was given? The guy lost to Joachim Alcine in the middle of an 8 fight stretch where his only win was Lemieux. But then Lemieux got better right, that’s how he repaired his image right?
    Naw, what he did was fight Jaudiel Zepeda(excuse me if I get a few of these names wrong because nobody knows who they are), Alvaro Gaona, Albert Ayropytiel, hell, I really can’t recall these people. I’d go on but I’d butcher the names or go to boxrec. The point is he fought nobodies in front of large crowds.

    I could give you 100 examples very easily of this type of stuff that would not happen without a person earning it unless the looked right. Everyone knows the term great white hype for a reason, they’re always looking for him. That is not to say that there are not great white fighters, there are hundreds of those too. But, and this is where my teasing began about fake or real, they get different treatment too. For example, Loma was rated above Mikey, when Mikey had more wins, more titles won, in more divisions and had unified. At a time where Loma had less wins, less titles won in less divisions and had not unified, and had a loss against a common opponent. When you type it it sounds ridiculous, but people thought it made sense, still do. But I was directly teasing how GGGs “regular WBA” title fights were counted as “major title fights”. You and I both know it’s not a major title, but the guys with hoods will come argue every time how they were major title fights. After all he earned it against the great Milton Nunez. Err wait, it’s Felix Sturms fault since he ducked GGG so GGG couldn’t get the real belt so we should just give him credit for major title fights even though he didn’t fight major title fights(this is an actual argument made on this subject as preposterous as it is). The opponents weren’t his fault, the belt wasn’t his fault so it’s major even though it isn’t major(again, actual argument even though preposterous).

    Tell me a time people got away with defending a black fighter with such absurd BS and I’ll tip my cap and say all is indeed fair.
