How to watch Manny Pacquiao vs. Keith Thurman

Manny Pacquiao might be taking on Keith Thurman for the WBA Welterweight title Saturday night in Vegas, but the 40-year-old superstar is looking far beyond his career in the ring.

Manny Pacquiao will counter with speed, experience and desire.

Some are even speculating that Saturday's bout against undefeated star Keith Thurman could be his final fight, although that remains to be seen.

When pressed on if he thought he would be able to fight until 45, the former eight-division champion replied, "My feeling right now, I can say yes ..."

"If you ask me about my body condition, I feel good", said Pacquiao.

Odds continued to swing in favor of Pacquiao on the eve of the fight.
