1. Keith Thurman
Manny Pacquiao won a version of the welterweight world title for the fourth time against Lucas Matthysse. However, claiming only the WBA ‘regular’ championship does cast a cloud over the triumph. A win over the returning Thurman would not only unify the WBA title palaver but also further show whether Pacquiao has much left to offer at the elite level. With Thurman set to return from injury following 16 months out, catching ‘One Time’ now could be a deciding factor in this fight.
