Keith Thurman is scheduled to fight Manny Pacquiao on July 20th in Las Vegas at MGM. If Thurman needed any extra motivation, he just gave it to himself. In an interview with TMZ Sports, after hearing that Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach was putting “big money” on Pacquiao, Thurman says he doesn’t think it’s a good bet and that he’s going to put some money on the fight too.
“That’s motivation. I can’t go 3 minutes going ‘tap tap tap’ when I got $10k on the round”
Thurman says he’s gonna bet $10,000 that’s he’ll knockout Pacquiao in one of the first two rounds. Thurman says he’s already 100% certain he’ll win but wants to put some extra pressure on himself.
