One of Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao's great friends, Narvacan, Ilocos Sur Mayor Luis "Chavit" Singson revealed a night before the highly-awaited Pacquiao – Thurman match that the Pambansang Kamao is stronger enough to knock out Keith "One Time" Thurman.
In an exclusive interview with the 78-year-old mayor, he threw some revelations about the current conditions of the eight-division world champion. He shared that it could be seen that Pacquiao is stronger and faster just like when he was starting to build a name in the boxing industry enough to take down the undefeated Thurman.
The former governor, along with Pacquiao's other comrades, is also confident that Pacquiao can win the fight specially that he already surpassed heavily-built boxers like Cotto.
"Palagay ko, knock out 'to," he confidently said.
Though Pacquiao's strength and aggressiveness are there but according to Singson, Pacquaio shows more eagerness and fire to defeat his opponent, Thurman.
When asked about his opinions over Thurman's shady words against the Pambansang Kamao, Singson assured that Pacquiao was not intimidated and affected with it. He also thought that this was just Thurman's way of covering the latter's nervousness to fight and face inside the ring against Pacquiao.
He also said that Pacquiao, being well-experienced, would do a great job inside the ring, making them worry less.
Moreover, Pacquiao was more prepared to fight unlike his past fights and matches, shared Singson, which he also described Pacquaio as "fit."
He also encouraged every Filipinos to continue to support the 40-year-old Pambansang Kamao on his fight against Thurman which would make him inspired more to take down his opponent. He also described him to be one of the people who brings glory to the Philippines.
He also invited his fellow Narvacenos, along with other Filipinos, to watch the Pacquiao – Thurman bout tomorrow (Manila time) live at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
