Manny Pacquiao-Keith Thurman Weigh-In Results From MGM

By Keith Idec

LAS VEGAS – The size advantage Keith Thurman thinks will serve him well Saturday night was on full display Friday afternoon.

The taller Thurman looked down at Pacquiao as they stood face-to-face following their weigh-in at MGM Grand Garden Arena. Thurman and Pacquiao were the same weight moments earlier, however, when they stepped on the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s scale.

Thurman, of Clearwater, Florida, and Pacquiao, of General Santos City, Philippines, each officially weighed in at 146½ pounds.
