The Feb. 5 PBC on Fox pay-per-view event featuring Keith Thurman vs. Maro Barrios has the potential to thrill and surprise boxing fans.
The welterweight boxing contest between Keith Thurman and Mario Barrios is an intriguing matchup for a number of reasons. Thurman was a highly revered champion, but has his time come and gone?
Thurman is 33 years old and hasn’t fought since his 2019 split-decision loss to Manny Pacquiao. Although Thurman only has one loss on his record, he was dropped by Pacquiao and questions about what he has left remain.
Barrios also lost his last contest. Davis was stopped by Gervonta Davis in June. Barrios held his own, but couldn’t hold up against Davis’s power. He’s moving up a division to welterweight to battle Thurman. Is Barrios biting off more than he can chew?
Beyond the glaring questions previously covered, there are several exciting undercard fights. Some will be free on Fox and others appear on pay-per-view. Here’s what you need to know to navigate the action.
