Unbeaten Keith “One Time” Thurman joins us on this week’s Ringside Boxing Show to talk about his July 20 showdown with living legend Manny Pacquiao, a pay-per-view fight that will bring Thurman the biggest paycheck of his career.
For the undefeated welterweight contender, the upside is hard to find. A loss to a 40-year-old legend would be devastating to his status as one of the best 147-fighters in the world. A victory over an aging fighter almost certainly will be dismissed with a shrug by many observers.
We address that conundrum and other poignant topics with Thurman, who was taking a break from his training camp to speak with us on this week’s show.
Before that, we put expert analyst John J. Raspanti to the test with a guess-the-legend style boxing quiz.
