Fuck, I hate April 1st, but yeah, I can totally see it happening. Thurman might very well lose.

I like both of them..But I think Thurman will have to much at this stage.

I doubt he’ll head rusty as he was against Lopez and he is defo going to be throwing more than the 5 punches Broner threw

If I were a betting man, I'd say Pacquiao by stoppage. Thurman, weirdly enough, has been such a vulnerable fighter. You'd think someone that fought and beat Porter and Garcia wouldn't be, but the guy got hurt by Lopez, Collazo, and Soto Karass. Just going by their last fight, it's all Pacquiao.

Anyways, how many more fights does Pacquiao have? I wouldn't mind him fighting Thurman, Danny, Mikey, Maidana, and calling it a career. Didn't he say he had 5 more fights after the Matthysse win? That's pretty much 5.

Eh, I wouldn't be so sure. Thurman goes from One Time to Run Time during the second half. Reason why the Garcia fight was even close, IIRC.

Pac by stoppage, Thurman is too vulnerable, id hope Pac could win and then retire but he will most likely carry on, hes going to have to end up fighting Spence if hes calling himself world champ in the division

Nah I am confident enough that Thurman can get it done. Also Pac sure as shit isn't knocking him out.

I wouldn't go crazy but if it gets signed and the odds are ok I'll throw a few lobsters or a pineapple on it.

After seeing Thurman's survival instincts against Lopez he literally just ran and didnt even hold and got hit with straights, Pac rocks everyone he fights at some point, Thurman slows down big time in the second half aswell, im mainly judging Thurman on the Lopez fight but he was shocking

I dont think we will ever see the Thurman from the Garcia and Porter fights again, ring rust is one thing but nearly getting dropped by Josesitio Lopez is quite embarrassing, plus it was only one punch that rocked him badly

Very surprised Pac is taking this. Not something he needs to do at this stage of his career. And when I say "this stage", I do mean: call it a day, sit back, and enjoy life.

Thurman isn't as vulnerable as people make out. He was just rusty last time out. I reckon he'll run and box - something Pac won't like. Thurman by decision.

Fight close to being done for July 20, I reckon Pac will fight Thurman then Garcia and then retire

Not sure if he's going to retire after Thurman and Garcia. That's one hell of a resume to retire on. :lol:
