What to expect from the Pacquiao vs. Thurman fight
The 40-year-old Pacquiao will be battling a 30-year-old Thurman. However, don’t let the age difference fool you. Pacquiao has performed well in his last 2 outings while Thurman only recently returned to boxing action after a long break to recover from a car accident. Pacquiao is the older fighter and Thurman is taller so on the surface it looks like Thurman has the advantage.
Thurman can use his length advantage to strike while outside Pacquiao’s range. However, if Pacquiao gets in close he can deal some devastating body blows. It will be a close fight but Pacquiao’s experience may see him through especially given’s Thurman’s long break from action.
