Odds: Thurman Will Likely Defeat Pacquiao on July 20

Keith Thurman is the favored boxer to win the Welterweight title, but many expect a competitive match. The question now is can Manny Pacquiao pull an upset?

Undefeated Super WBA Welterweight Champion Keith Thurman will have to outlast WBA Regular Welterweight Champion Manny Pacquiao in the ring on July 20 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to keep his current 29-0 record unblemished.

The American boxer, however, looks to have a tough match ahead as the odds give him only slightly better advantage to win. Pacquiao, who is the only eight-division champion in the world, is the underdog. But analysts and oddsmakers predict an equal match between the two champions.

Pacquiao vs Thurman

Bitcoin sportsbooks like Cloudbet and Nitrogen Sports give the two elite boxers equal odds, with 1.92 and 1.939, respectively. But Thurman gets the nod from Sportsbet.io and Betrally.

Thurman, the 30-year old American boxer based in Florida, has 22 KOs, zero draws, and zero losses. He stands 5’9″ and has a 69″ reach. His stats currently lord over those of Pacquiao, who is no longer in his prime.

The Filipino boxer has a 61-7-2 record, with 39 KOs. He is 10 years older than Thurman and is shorter by three inches in height and in reach. Although labeled as the underdog in this match, the southpaw may pull off a surprise win, similar to his victory against Oscar De La Hoya in 2008.
