    Gonna go with a close competitive and controversial SD for Thurman.

    I just think Pac is simply too old.

    Rooting heavily for him though.

    my mind says Thurman. But, I am going with Pac via a decision with a couple of knock downs along the way.

    This one is really, really vexing me.

    I'm going with my gut reaction to the announcement of the fight. Thurman UD.

    Thurman might be the best effective mover in boxing. Manny cannot cut off a ring well at all. His work rate is too low. Thurman will land his flashy bombs here and there. Pac will certainly get some nice counters in.

    Ultimately , Pacquiao looking lack luster following Thurman around the ring mindlessly will force the judges hands across the board to something like 115-113.

    Close early rounds, Thurman catches Manny coming in and rocks him in the mid rounds. Thurman goes for the finish and gets the job done in round 8.

    Pac 7-5.
    Pac will definitely hurt Thurman.
    Thurman on his bicycle might be too much for Pac to catch up with. Keith might edge a lot of close rounds that way and score the W.

    They might rob Pac. Pac's contract with PBC is up while Thurman is only 30 years old.

    Movement bicycling and running in this fight will leave a bad impression on the judges . runtime did say this was a retirement party? Runtime did predict pain. What you running for? Running from a 40yr old shot pac? WTF?

    Pac ud

    Always a possibility in Las Vegas. Money runs this city. That's why Pac needs a decisive wide UD or TKO to eliminate paid-off Vegas judges.:machinegun:

    Majority decision in Manny's favor. If he wins it'll be close. The old pac man will show up because the young one is long gone. Guy is 40 years old and it should be an easy pick going with Thurman. I guess I'm falling for the narrative. I've been thinking Keith is looking frail for a couple fights now and manny has been keeping busy enough to be sharp enough to give Keith all he can handle. I don't put much stock in Manny's ko of matthyse, he was done, but he's been busy and really hasn't been blown out yet. ( ktfo6 ). The bigger the fight the stranger the cards. Probably gonna be a long boring ud for the much larger kieth, constantly circling and making manny look like the 40 year old that he is.

    Good fight between two talented Welters.

    Thurman comes out and works off the game plan. Boxing from the outside and making Pacquiao work in to get in range.
    Pac comes up short and becomes frustrated for the first 4-5 rounds. Pacquiao tries to take the fight to Thurman, but Thurman takes a chapter from Floyd and works off the back foot outpointing Pacquiao, taking the first 4/6 rounds simply by landing when Pacquiao misses. Pacquiao more active but less effective.

    Rounds 5-9, the tides start to turn as Pacquiao starts to have a large amount of success, hurting Thurman up top and to the body, but not enough to drop him.

    The fight goes the distance and is close on the scorecards. Much to the crowds displeasure, the fight is ruled a draw.
    Pacquiao vs Thurman 2 to come.
