SKY to stream Pacquiao-Thurman fight live on pay-per-view

Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao guns for another win in a major boxing bout as he challenges Keith Thurman for the WBA Super Welterweight World Championship this Sunday, July 21, 2019 live via SKY Sports Pay-Per-View.

The reigning WBA (regular) Welterweight World Champion faces an opponent 10 years his junior after successfully defeating Adrien Broner last January and Lucas Matthysse in the latter part of 2018. Pacquiao currently holds a boxing record of 61-7-2 with 39 wins coming via knockout.

On the other hand, Keith Thurman, also known by the moniker “One Time,” is coming from a majority decision win over Josesito Lopez. He owns an unblemished record of 30-0-0 with 22 wins via knockouts and one No Contest.

Local boxing analyst Ed Tolentino said in an interview by news.abs-cbn.com that the bout between Thurman and Pacquiao will be a good one, stating that Thurman is better than Broner.

One thing he is concerned about Thurman though, is his health since this fight is only the American fighter’s second after being inactive for almost two years.

Don’t miss the eight-division world champion as he returns to the MGM Grand this July 21. This promo is available to all digital SKYcable, SKY Fiber and SKYdirect subscribers nationwide.

Subscribers to the fight on SKY Sports Pay-Per-View will have access to its live and commercial-free airing in high definition, including its replays on the same day right after the live event, as well as its live stream with a seven-day catch-up via SKY on Demand.
