The MGM Grand Garden Arena is set to play host to major PPV boxing once again. On Saturday night in Las Vegas, Manny Pacquiao will make his return to the center of the ring when he challenges WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman for the 147-pound title in a fight with plenty at stake.

Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs), the secondary WBA champ, has shown a bit of a career resurgence as he's claimed two consecutive victories after his controversial loss to Jeff Horn in 2017. The 40-year-old is once again being considered among the elite in the welterweight division, and a win over Thurman would further cement his status as not only one of the all-time greatest, but the best to still be in action. Thurman, meanwhile, (29-0, 22 KOs) is consistently mentioned within pound-for-pound conversations, and taking down one of the more accomplished fighters of this generation would send a stern message to the rest of the stacked welterweight division.

Also on this card are some top welterweights as Omar Figueroa battles former title challenger Yordenis Ugas, and Sergey Lipinets takes on Jayar Inson. Ugas is coming off a split-decision loss to Shawn Porter in his last bout in March while Lipinets will take on a late replacement in Inson after his scheduled foe, John Molina, was forced to withdraw with a back injury on Friday.
