“The summer just got a little hotter“, the veteran world champion boxer said on Twitter.
Pacquiao is coming off of an impressive unanimous decision victory over former-four division champion Adrien Broner in January. On the other hand, Keith Thurman is coming off of a close decision victory over Josesito Lopez in January. That was the first time Thurman fought after a long layoff of nearly two-years ever since he defeated Danny Garcia back in 2017.
“In the biggest night of boxing this year, boxing’s only eight-division world champion, Senator Manny ‘Pac Man’ Pacquiao, will take on undefeated WBA Welterweight World Champion Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman on Saturday, July 20 in a blockbuster showdown that headlines a Premier Boxing Champions on FOX Sports Pay-Per-View event,” promoters said in a statement.
