Manny Pacquiao takes on undefeated welterweight Keith Thurman who is 10 years his junior. Here are the stats and how to watch.
Manny Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs) defends his version of the WBA welterweight title against Keith Thurman (29-0, 22 KOs) on Saturday, July 20 on FOX sports pay-per-view. This event is different from other boxing telecasts, and you can catch some of the action free on live TV.
To entice your appetite for Pacquiao vs. Thurman, FOX will televise the super middleweight bout between IBF champion Caleb Plant (18-0, 10 KOs) and undefeated challenger Mike Lee (21-0, 11 KOs). The buildup has been intense between the two, and they don’t like each other as demonstrated during they’re final press conference on July 18. Plant vs. Lee is available on FOX starting at 7 p.m. ET.
After the Plant vs. Lee bout airs on FOX, the event will move to a pay-per-view format starting at 9 p.m. ET. You can purchase the bout through your cable provider, or you can order it directly through FOX and stream the match through your computer or another electronic device. After buying the bout from FOX, you can stream the bout through their FOX app.
Plant vs. Lee and Pacquiao vs. Thurman are two great title bouts, but they’re not the only intriguing matchups.
Three primary undercards are part of the pay-per-view broadcast. Former IBF super lightweight champion Sergey Lipinets (15-1, 11 KOs) clashes with blood and guts warrior John Molina Jr. (30-8, 24 KOs). Molina is known for engaging in action-packed bouts.
Impressive bantamweight Luis Nery (29-0, 23 KOs) fights Juan Carlos Payano (21-2, 9 KOs). Nery might be the best bantamweight in the world, and he looks to impress against an outmatched Payano.
The final pay-per-view undercard contest is between welterweight Yordenis Ugas (23-4, 11 KOs) and Omar Figueroa Jr. (28-0-1, 19 KOs). Ugas has several loses on his record, but they aren’t indicative of his talent level. He suffered a narrow split-decision to Shawn Porter in March.
Figueroa is undefeated but has been inactive for various reasons over the years. A strong win against Ugas would go a long way in restoring his luster in the boxing world.
