Local Theater to Show Pacquiao-Thurman Clash

Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman will throw down this weekend at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas with Thurman’s WBA (Super) Welterweight title on the line. If you can’t make the trip to Vegas, one theater has your ticket to the fight covered.

The Cinemark Hollywood 16 theater in south Amarillo will show the clash between Pacquiao and Thurman on Saturday, July 20th, beginning at 8PM. The fight card will also feature unbeaten welterweight Omar Figueroa, Jr. facing Yordenis Ugas in a twelve round WBC welterweight title eliminator.

Thurman, who is undefeated, will be taking on the boxer-turned-politician Pacquiao, who is riding a two fight winning streak, including his recent unanimous decision win over Adrian Broner.

Tickets for the showing are $19 before taxes and fees.
