Manny became the WBA (Super) welterweight champion after defeating Keith Thurman by a split decision. During this time, Keith Thurman was the favorite, and yes, Manny not only won but also knocked down Thurman more than once during the bout.
Spence also seems to be many people’s favorite in the anticipated bout against Manny, with various top boxers rooting for him. He last stepped in the ring on December 4th, 2020, against Danny Garcia. He also became a champion clinching the WBC and IBF welterweight titles in his last fight by unanimous decision.
