Thurman (29-0, one no-contest, 22 KOs) made a triumphant return to the ring after a 22-month layoff due to injuries, one week after Pacquiao beat Broner, and defeated a game Josesito Lopez by unanimous decision.
I chose Keith Thurman because he’s undefeated and I want to prove that at age 40 I can still beat a great fighter like Keith,” Pacquaio said at a press conference to formally announce the fight.
“Pacquiao wants a challenge, and I’m very grateful to be sharing a ring with a legend,” Thurman also said at the presser. “If you understand boxing history, you know that times change. I believe boxing is in a new era. Come July 20, Pacquiao will disappear. He’ll always be remembered in the sport, but I’m doing to Manny Pacquiao, what he did to Oscar De La Hoya.”
Thurman presents the most stringent test to date for Pacquiao since he lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr., back in May 2015.
