NEW YORK (AFP) – Unbeaten rival world welterweight title-holders Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia each vowed to grab the global spotlight that once shined on Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao by winning their unification showdown next week in New York.

“The winner of this fight is the man at 147 (pounds, 66.7kg) and whoever has been the man at 147 lately with Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, has been the face of boxing,’’ Thurman said.

“The winner of this fight is going to get a little of that spotlight priority.”
