Thurman Says Pacquiao Is His Last 2019 Opponent
Keith Thurman is lining up the biggest fight of his career, as he will face Manny Pacquiao on July 20th on Pay-Per-View.
Whether or not the WBA “super” welterweight champion is successful this July in Las Vegas, July will be the last time he’ll be in the ring in 2019.
“A third time this year?,” Thurman asked after a press conference Tuesday.“
No sir, no sir. We get this job done, shoot, we’ve gotta relax. You know? I’m very happy to stay active and I would love to continue to perform twice a year, instead of the slow rolling that I was doing when I was champion, when I fought Shawn [Porter] for once that year [in 2016] and I waited for the Danny [Garcia] fight. I could stay busy, you know? It depends on how I feel, but I’m not projecting a third fight this year. No, sir.”
“There is no plans past Pacquiao,” Thurman said. “Get this fight in, perform, have the best camp of my life, living my best life, be the best Keith Thurman I can be. And we’ll just go from there – one fight at a time. We are not looking past Manny Pacquiao, not for one second.”
