On July 20, WBA World Welterweight Champion Keith Thurman will face WBA regular champion Manny Pacquiao in a bout that is not only the fight of the summer but also the biggest event in the sport in 2019. There is still a chance Canelo Alvarez will face Gennady Golovkin in September. Deontay Wilder is supposed to fight Luis Ortiz in a rematch and there is a chance Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua will meet again later this year.
All of those fights are big, but none of them have as much current and historical relevance as Pacquiao-Thurman.
The match will unify the WBA titles. Pacquiao earned the interim title in July 2018 when he stopped Lucas Matthysse. He has since defeated Adrien Broner via unanimous decision. Thurman has held the WBA title since 2015, and he plucked the WBC belt from Danny Garcia in March 2017. That win had many calling him the best welterweight in the world. However, injuries kept him out of the ring for nearly two years before he returned in January to defeat Josesito Lopez.
When Pacquiao and Thurman clash, we’ll have just one champion from one of the four major governing bodies.
Boxing fans would love to see a unified champion, and eliminating the interim title in the WBA would be a step in that direction. Having Thurman or Pacquiao emerge victoriously also helps to set the winner up for another major fight. IBF champion Errol Spence Jr. and WBC champion Shawn Porter have reportedly agreed to a unification bout later this year.
