HOLLYWOOD—Boxing greats took their pick as to who between Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman will emerge victorious in their world title fight on Saturday at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The legends in the sport like Roberto Duran, Sugar Ray Leonard, Roy Jones Jr. and Lennox Lewis to name a few, gave their two-cents worth on the upcoming welterweight headliner.
“I think I’m gonna have to go with Manny Pacquiao because he’s the older, experienced guy,” said Jones in an interview on Inside PBC Boxing.
“Keith Thurman has a ton of talent, power and speed. I like Keith Thurman,” Leonard said.
As far as the betting odds are concerned, Pacquiao stands as the favorite.
