Thurman has appetite for destruction of 'legend' Pacquiao

Undefeated WBA Welterweight World Champion Keith "One Time" Thurman hosted media at the St. Pete Boxing Club in Florida Wednesday as he showed off his skills in advance of his Saturday, July 20 showdown against eight-division world boxing champion Senator Manny "PacMan" Pacquiao headlining a Premier Boxing Champions on FOX Sports Pay-Per-View event from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

HOLLYWOOD-Manny Pacquiao's relentless attacks against Oscar dela Hoya, and his accurate counterpunching against Ricky Hatton are what the eight-division champ hopes to bring against Keith Thurman to make it a short night.

"My prediction? Less than 6 rounds". "Thurman starts quickly but he usually fades", Roach said.

"How can I not Babe Ruth it and step up to the plate, point and start swinging". How can I not go for it? I've got an "0" and I'm not afraid to let it go.

"If Manny Pacquiao is the man that beats me, he's the man that beats me. I don't like making predictions but I don't see this one going the distance".

"It is what it is". Keith "One Time" Thurman is going to touch the body. "And he's a bad man".

We have great sparring partners for Thurman.

Lakers’ Danny Green waited impatiently for Kawhi Leonard’s decision
If you thought that was enough to get Green some inside information on Leonard's decision, you would be wrong. He'll be able to enter free agency with the likes of LeBron James , Giannis Antetokounmpo and Bradley Beal.

"I still get excited when I enter the ring for a big fight".

His American opponent has been a world champion since 2013 but has had long periods of inactivity due to injury and looked poor when beating Josesito Lopez in January. These hands were designed for something a little different, but luckily with different forms of therapy, we feel confident for this fight and pray that we stay healthy in the future so that we can keep giving the world tremendous fights. "This still is the most exciting fight of the year and It doesn't matter who it is whether Keith Thurman fights Manny Pacquiao, or Keith Thurman fights Errol Spence, or Keith Thurman fights Bud Crawford, I think Keith Thurman is the new Manny Pacquiao".

"He wants to prove his greatness".

Pac Man may be in the twilight stages of his incredible career at the age of 40, but he remains a consummate professional and is coming off a fine win over Adrien Bonner. "We are just counting on winning every round, one at a time", Roach said.

Thurman said he plans to take an aggressive approach into the fight as he chases an emphatic victory.

But his top cornermen were concerned about burning himself out, or worse, hurting himself from too much exertion.
