MANILA—Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman made the weight early Saturday (Manila time) in Las Vegas, Nevada before they square off for the WBA welterweight showdown.

Both fighters stared intimidatingly at each other for half a minute after hitting the scales.

The 40-year-old Filipino ring icon, a multi-division world champion, came in at 146.5 pounds.

"It's gonna be a good fight cause I want to prove something. I'm so focus for this fight. I'm ready for tomorrow," Pacquiao said to the cheers of Filipino fans.

"I'm so prepared for this fight. This is I think one of my best training camp we had and best condition."

Meanwhile, the 30-year-old American fighter, who has tallied a 29-0 record, 22 via knockout, tipped the scales at 146.5 pounds.

"It is my time. This is one time and still champion 'bout tomorrow night. Manny Pacquiao ain't doing nothing to me baby," said Thurman who was booed loudly by the crowd.

Both fighters who are recognized by the WBA as world welterweight titleholders will battle in a 12-round title fight Sunday morning (Manila time) at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada.
