that was a damn good fight.

brutal fight for thurman. nose possibly broken early, head butted on his nose later, knocked down in round 1, wrecked with a massive body shot in round ~9, hit with lots of solid shots.

man o man.. thurman took a body shot in like round 9.. was so bad he spit his own mouth piece out into his glove. held his mouthpiece in his glove and kept boxing. that is nuts. he spit it out bekoz he was just in so much pain. but didnt want to take a knee. crazy

thurman hit pac with some good shots, a few at the end that def hurt pac, but pac came back hard after he took 5-10 seconds to recover.

very impressive fight for pac.. he looked great. still so fast.

not a lot crediting mannys chin. one KO from those hard solid punches that he took would have totally changed the decision. read somewhere that mannys bone structure is a one godly genetic gift. same wrist size as a heavyweight.

well after u get ko'd as bad as he did, usually more susceptible to being ko'd. thurman has some brutal power. pac took some clean hard shots, didn't seem unphased by them, but def hung in there and recovered, then put it back on thurman.

plus he's 40. he's taken lots of shots. chins usually get worse after this long in the game.

but he looked like a young 30 year old out there lol.

Omg. I did tell you that Pacquiao would beat Thurman. He is just so fast and dynamic with all those combos. I'm happy he won. First judge blind in his scores.

Pacquiao was too fast Thurman had to stop going toe to toe and box from distance but Pacquiao closes it.

Great fight by legendary champion.
