Manny Pacquiao vs Keith Thurman reportedly nearing deal for July 20 in Las Vegas
Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman are closing in on a deal to fight this summer, according to reports.
It’s been known that the welterweight stars are in serious talks to face off next, with both men holding a version of the WBA title which will be at stake.
It’s being claimed by FOX Sports’ Mike Coppinger that July 20 is the planned date for the bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Pacquiao, 40, was most recently seen comprehensively outboxing Adrien Broner on January 19.
One week later, 30-year-old Thurman returned from a two-year lay-off to beat Josesito Lopez.
While neither man looked at their best last time out, a meeting between them would still prove very intriguing.
Elsewhere in the welterweight division, IBF champion Errol Spence is being lined up for a unification with WBC champion Shawn Porter and WBO king Terence Crawford is being pursued by Kell Brook.
