Filipino champ Manny Pacquiao and defending WBA super welterweight champion Keith Thurman on Wednesday were warmly welcomed at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas a few days before their scheduled fight this weekend.
Throngs of Filipinos in Las Vegas trooped to the hotel to witness the arrival of Pacquiao.
Thurman arrived first and he reiterated how confident he is on winning the fight against the "Pacman."
Pacquiao, on the other hand, said he is motivated going into the match after Thurman claimed he will end the Filipino slugger's career.
The undefeated Thurman is putting his welterweight belt on the line against the 40-year-old Pacquiao on Sunday, Philippine time.
