Pacquiao vs Thurman ended in a win for the Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao. He won the match by split decision with two judges voting in his favor while one voting in the favor of Keith Thurman. Aged 40, this is an outstanding win for the Pac Man as many were expecting the undefeated Keith Thurman to ‘retire’ Pacquiao – but we can’t write him off just yet.

Where Does Manny Pacquiao Go From Here?
At 40, many were expecting the Pac Man to lose this match and head into the sunset. However, a win does mean there’s more for him to do. Amir Khan has been one name with whom Pacquiao has been linked with for quite some time. He might even want a rematch against Floyd Mayweather, but given his recent ankle injury that is quite unlikely.
