Problem is ring rust doesnt make your chin bad or your survival instincts fail, Thurman got hit by 1 good punch and was out on his feet and showed no clinch, obviously he still has time to work on a clinch but if his chin is that bad against Pac I doubt he will recoverPerhaps. But with Manny we’ve seen a steady decline for a number of years - even involving a loss (albeit a robbery) to someone he would normally have stood on his head.
The evidence for Thurman’s decline rests only on one bad fight. One which could largely be due to ring rust.
I guess we’ll see on fight night. Hope Pac wins.
