Pacquiao vs Thurman is a rematch which is just waiting to happen! Fans of both the men have been very excited about the possibility of a round II between them. Given that Pacquiao, who was almost-expected to lose their match managed to defeat Thurman and hand him his first-ever loss in boxing, the rivalry has become more personal than ever before!
Rumors of a rematch are more rampant than ever before and some even suggest that the two have signed a secret pact where they are going to fight each other sometime in 2020! Moreover, this is expected to be the Pac Man’s retirement match.
How did 40 year old Pacquiao beat Keith Thurman ? I wonder if they trynna build up Pacq for a Mayweather rematch or Keith just ain’t got the hands like that

Pacquiao vs Thurman Rematch Secretly Confirmed?
As of now everything about this match is a huge rumor. There is no certainty as to if Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman are going to fight again – but given that their rivalry is so intense and personal and both men now respect each other, it would be interesting to see how a second round is.
If a match does indeed happen, don’t expect it to take place anytime in 2019. There are many other star-studded fights already scheduled for the year, most notable of them expected to be the Joshua vs Ruiz Jr. rematch! There are also rumors of a Pacquiao vs Mayweather rematch – but that is very unlikely given Mayweather’s age and his time away from the ring.
RBK :Pissed Thurman: “At the end to the day, nobody wants to see it (the Mayweather v Pacquiao rematch). "Sign the contract Pacman!"
“Real fight fans know, it ain’t gonna be more exciting than what Keith Thurman just did (against Pacquiao).”

Who Is Expected to Win Pacquiao vs Thurman II?
The second round would essentially be advantage-Thurman because he has now stepped in the ring with Pacquiao. However, since it is also expected to be his retirement fight, we expect the Pac Man to give his best and win the Pacquiao vs Thurman rematch.
