"I am going to teach him a lesson", Pacquiao said, obviously pissed over Thurman's non-stop trash-talking that was evident again during their official weighin on Friday.

Boxers Manny Pacquiao from the Philippines and Keith Thurman from the U.S. face off during their weigh-in on July 19, 2019, at the MGM Grand Hotel.

Keith Thurman is younger, bigger and undefeated.

When pressed on if he thought he would be able to fight until 45, the former eight-division champion replied, "My feeling right now, I can say yes ..."

McDowell qualified for his hometown championship by draining a 30-foot par putt at last month's RBC Canadian Open. But he did enough in Detroit three weeks ago to regain some confidence, and he has been in a groove at Portrush .

So who do you like when Thurman (29-0) and Pacquiao (61-7-2) square off tonight for the WBA Super Welterweight Championship in Las Vegas?

Pacquiao, the regular champion, is slightly favored to beat the loudmouthed Florida native, whose antics have clearly gotten under the eight-division champion's skin.

Pacquiao said he was in better shape now than when he faced Adrien Broner in January in a fight the Filipino won by unanimous decision. The 28-year-old Inson (18-3, 12 KOs), who's promoted by Pacquiao, lost by knockout for the first time since he turned pro in December 2013.

Do not miss the action as Pacquiao and Thurman go toe-to-toe tomorrow at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada.
