Thurman keeps on trash talking Pacquiao
As the event comes nearer, World Boxing Association super welterweight champion Keith "One Time" Thurman continues to trash talk the Pambansang Kamao, Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao. On his latest Instagram live taken on his flight to Los Angeles, Thurman questioned the professional boxer's retirement plan. It could be remembered that issues about the retirement of Pacquiao rose specially when her mother, Dionisia Pacquiao, encouraged him to stop boxing. However, the fire in Pacquiao continues to burn. In his fight with Jeff Horn in July 2017, Pacquiao stressed that he would not stop playing boxing. "I love this sport and until the passion is gone, I will continue to fight for God, my family, my fans and my country," said Pacquiao. Meanwhile, Thurman, who does not have any losses under his belt, said that he is ready to fight his next opponent Errol Pence, who is about to fight Shawn Porter in September, after taking down the eight-division World Champion. However, the Pambansang Kamao just shrugged off all the critiques of Thurman instead he would use it as his inspiration to fight for the title and for his country. But Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe said in an interview from Fighthype.com, Thurman should be careful on what he was saying against Pacquiao. With the latter's experience in the boxing industry, Thurman should give respect to him. “But he's fighting a straight dog in Manny Pacquiao who's at 40 years old. To even be having a conversation that can a 40-year old beat a 30-year old, that tells you what kind of level or respect that the fans have for Manny Pacquiao and the accomplishments that he has,” said Ellerbe.
