Keith Thurman

Ikinokonsidera umano ni WBA “super” welterweight champion Keith Thurman ang pagreretiro sakaling hindi ito magwagi kontra kay Pinoy ring icon Sen. Manny Pacquiao sa kanilang laban sa Hulyo 21.

Ayon kay Thurman, nais niya raw maging full-time TV analyst sakaling hindi ito palarin kay Pacquiao.

“Pshh … probably,” tugon ni Thurman nang matanong kung magreretiro na ito sakaling talunin ni Pacquiao. “I’d at least think about it. I’d at least be like, ‘Can I do some more commentating or something? Can I do some more commentating?’ Momma said I look good in a suit. I don’t think she wants to see her boy get punched on TV. Getting beat up by an old man.”

“I would bow down in the middle of the ring,” dagdag nito. “I would bow down in the middle of the ring. I’ll say, ‘Oh, senator. Oh, senator. Greatest yee, oh, senator.’”

Una nang sinabi ni Thurman na pagreretiruhin daw niya si Pacquiao sa kanilang July 21 clash na idaraos sa MGM Grand Garden Arena sa Las Vegas.

Wika ni Thurman, gagawin niya raw kay Pacquiao ang ginawa nito kay Mexican legend Oscar De la Hoya nang magtuos ang dalawa noong 2008.
