Let us take a closer look at this and see what these former world champions have to say about this match. Interestingly, all three of them have faced Pacquiao in the past.
Hatton, who was already a big name in boxing when he faced Pacquiao, is all praises for his former opponent. While he said that Pacquiao might be showing signs of aging over the years, he still has it in him to beat Thurman. He said that Pacquiao will ‘Rock On’ and he knows when the right time to retire is.
Timothy Bradley, Pacquiao’s opponent from the US, has taken the side of Keith Thurman, stating that the younger boxer has a clear advantage over Manny in the Pacquiao vs Thurman fight. However, Bradley still has a soft corner for the Pac Man as he said that even if Thurman beats Pacquiao, this will be a win over a 40-year-old man and not Pacquiao in his prime.
