The odds in Pacquiao vs Thurman continue to shift – but for now, both men are confident that they will win the match. Thurman has even placed a bet on himself knocking out the Pac Man in just two rounds, while Pacquiao is confident on beating Thurman. Let us take a closer look:
Pacquiao vs Thurman: Manny Pacquiao’s Training Gets Intense
The Pac Man has been training too hard. He has found a sparring partner in Tim Tszyu, an unbeaten Australian boxer who has the same build as well as the fighting style as Keith Thurman. Pacquiao expects that this training will help him get one on his opponent.
Given that Thurman is ten years younger to the Pac Man, many expect him to win the bout. However, Pacquiao is prepared too – sparring with Tszyu on a frequent basis – and that too with a newfound aggression. Thurman’s comments such as those that he will ‘crucify’ and ‘retire’ the Pac Man have pissed him off, as per Freddie Roach.
