Last night we witnessed a fight for the ages. Two lions in the welterweight division slugging it out to determine who would take his perch amongst the three titleholders at 147 pounds. We saw a 40 year old legend in Manny ‘PacMan’ Pacquaio (62-7, 39 KOs) take on a much younger undefeated Keith ‘One-Time’ Thurman (29-1, 22KOs) in his prime for Thurman’s WBA (Super) Welterweight Title.
Both fighters faced off at the final press conference and things got little chippy. Harsh words were exchanged and the fighters had to be separated before things went any further. Caleb Plant has clearly gotten under Mike Lee’s skin. Could it play a role in the fight?
This is one of the biggest fights of the year. It pits old versus young, legend versus champion, but it is lion versus lion.
This Saturday at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Caleb “Golden” Truax (30-4-2, 19 KOs) will meet Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (34-1-1, 23 KOs). The fight is a must win for both fighters.
Now off the biggest win of his career, it will be interesting to see who Chris Eubank fights next. Here are the the best options.
Caleb Plant came in as the fighter with so many unanswered questions for the fans who wondered if he could hurt Jose. Could he keep Jose from pressuring him around the ring? Could he last 12 rounds with Uzcategui? After Plant’s his performance on Sunday night, those questions were answered!
This is a very good fight with a lot of momentum lately. Both sides seem to not like each other, and feel that the other has been talking too much trash. Both fighters are promising victories, but only one will follow through. See who we predict will win.
After a great year of boxing in 2017, 2018 promises to be an exciting year with 5 rising stars poised to make a name for themselves.
