Pacquiao vs Thurman full fight will square-off in a welterweight world title Thurman vs Pacquiao Live attraction that headlines a PBC on FOX Sports Pay-Per-View event beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.

Thurman (29-0, 22 KOs) is a decade younger but was far from impressive in January when he returned from a 22-month injury layoff to outpoint Josesito Lopez. Pacquio, the only eight-division world champion in boxing history, is a -115 favorite (risk $115 to win $100) in the latest Pacquiao vs. Thurman odds, with Thurman listed at -105 (risk $105 to win $100) in fight Vegas views as virtually even. Before you make any Pacquiao vs. Thurman picks, you'll want to see the boxing predictions from Peter Kahn, given the streak he's on.

Big time boxing returns for the first time in 2019 tonight on Showtime pay per view when Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao does battle with Adrien ‘AB’ Broner for the WBA welterweight title.

It’s a fight that represents a really interesting clash of styles both personality and fight-wise. One one hand you have the humble, happy-go-lucky Filipino in-ring whirlwind in Pacquiao.

On the other hand you have the pot shot indulging, brash gifted product of an American ghetto in Broner. Fighting for the 71st time as a professional, Pacquiao will be looking to continue his resurgence following victories over Lucas Matthysse and Adrien Broner.

But in Thurman he faces a man 10 years his junior and who has not tasted defeat in his 29 professional fights.

He ended a near two-year battle with injuries by edging out Joseito Lopez by majority decision in January to prepare him for the Filipino legend.

Here is everything you need to know about the fight...

A fight game veteran with over 20 years of experience as a manager, promoter and adviser, he has his finger on the pulse of what's going on inside and outside the ring. He can be heard weekly as co-host of "The Fight Guys" podcast on the SB Nation Radio Network, and he just did a long sitdown interview with Thurman.

This is the same expert who nailed Pacquiao's last two fights, delivering huge profits. Kahn told readers last summer to back Pacquiao at +550 to knock out Lucas Matthysse. The result: Pacquiao knocked him out in the seventh round. Then, Kahn told his followers to bet Pacquiao over Adrien Broner. Pacquiao dominated in a lopsided, unanimous decision, and anyone who followed Kahn's lead hit it big.

Both boxers made the weight with ease yesterday and looked in tip top shape both mentally and physically ahead of tonight’s bonanza at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Both clearly realise not only the opportunity of tonight but what could lay ahead for the winner next up in 2019.

In Pacquiao’s case a potential cash windfall in the form of a rematch with old rival Floyd Mayweather is on the line.

As regards what time Manny Pacquiao vs Adrien Broner is due to get underway tonight we expect the following at the earliest:

4am for those in the UK Sunday morning (with the fight being free on ITV 4)8pm Saturday night local time in Vegas or for those on the West coast11pm in the EastThat’s the earliest we’d expect the first boxer to make his ring walk tonight in Vegas in what also has an interesting undercard on beforehand however headlined by co-main event Badou Jack of Sweden.

Kahn knows Thurman has edges in height and reach and, due to the age gap, should have more stamina than Pacquiao in what is widely expected to be a long fight. Pacquiao will have to take risks to get past Thurman's jab, Kahn told SportsLine, since Thurman "will try to mitigate Pacquiao's activity, angles, southpaw stance and punches."

Manny was back with a healthy right shoulder. Good atmosphere as always in a Pacquiao fight. This time the judges didn't screw up with the score like they did it in the first fight against Bradley. Mayweather is a coward for not fighting a healthy Pacquiao. A true champion takes on the best challenges.
