Pacquiao vs Thurman: A Look at the Rivalry
Manny Pacquiao is a legend of the sport while Keith Thurman is among the hottest rising forces in the world of boxing. The undefeated Thurman will now box with the legendary Pacquiao, who has faced many big names in boxing, including Floyd ‘The Money’ Mayweather.
The core idea behind this match is the story of Pacquiao being the older, experienced figthter vs the younger, undefeated Keith Thurman who has won all the 29 matches in his career so far. The age difference between Pacquiao vs Thurman is that of 10 years, which gives the younger Thurman a significant advantage against his older rival.
Will This Match Be Able to Break The Record Numbers
While both these men have significant followers, it is unlikely that it would be able to attain the 1 Million PPV buys mark as it requires perhaps an even bigger starpower, which is only possible in the case of matches such as Pacquiao vs Mayweather or McGregor vs Mayweather!
