BOXER: ♛🇵🇭Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao🇵🇭♛
FEATS ACCOMPLISHED: 4 boxing records broken in a single fight…becoming the oldest Welterweight Titlist of all time (40), becoming the first man to become a 4X Welterweight Champion, now having the longest time period between winning his first World Title, and winning his latest one (1998-2019, 21 year gap between the two)…also now having the most wins over boxers who won an official World Title in their careers (27 victories over 22 Champions).

THOUGHTS🤔 – While the Welterweight division has had the strongest quality of overall talent it’s had in maybe a couple decades, the majority of the talent were circling their own wagons early in their career in trying to bolster their own profile to better position themselves for future negotiations to big fights, a common trope when the most skilled fighters of a division are young boxers looking to make an imprint leading up to the mega match-ups.
It appears now at this point that all the dominoes are starting to fall, and there is plenty of movement currently happening with the young fighters fighting and scheduled to fight each other in the prime of their careers. As for the young contingent, 🇺🇸Keith “One Time” Thurman (29-0-0, 22KO)… Continue reading “Tré Berry III’s Comparison & Breakdown for Saturdays Welterweight Match of Keith Thurman vs. Manny Pacquiao”
