Floyd Mayweather vs Keith Thurman might just be the next match for Thurman if he manages to defeat Pacquiao in his current bout. As we write this, Pacquiao vs Thurman is going on at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The seeds of this rivalry were sown about 24 hours before the main event as Thurman dissed Mayweather and said that he keeps ‘ducking’ him.
In a YouTube video by TMZ, Thurman dissed the legendary undefeated Mayweather, saying that if ‘The Money’ wanted a ‘real fight’, he would have faced him years ago. He also pointed out that he was the number one contender for the WBA.
Floyd Mayweather vs Keith Thurman: Will It Happen?
As of this writing, Mayweather is retired and has no intention to return to in-ring action. ‘The Money’ has been declining the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor for a rematch for a long time now – but given that Thurman is a fresh foe, will Mayweather accept the challenge?
Floyd Mayweather vs Keith Thurman heavily depends on the outcome of Pacquiao vs Thurman tonight. If Thurman wins, his claim to challenge the undefeated Mayweather will be given even more importance.
