Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao has become the oldest welterweight champion in boxing history with a thrilling split decision victory over WBA champion Keith Thurman on Saturday.
The 40year Old floored Thurman with an electrifying combination in the first round and remained on the front foot throughout a pulsating 12-round duel.
The victory marks his 71st fight and 62nd win in his long-standing career. The legendary boxer commented that at 40 years old he still feels like he’s in his mid-20s, still training daily while playing basketball 2-5 hours each day. With this win, the PacMan mentioned that he will fight again as early as 2020 with Thurman indicating that he would be up for a rematch; there is still no confirmation if Manny will be going through with the rumored bout against Amir Khan.
