Manny Pacquiao once again proved his supremacy in the world of boxing as he drew first blood on American boxer Keith Thurman during their fight on July 21.
KAMI learned that the People’s Champ knocked down his opponent during the first round and won via split decision after the much-talked-about match.
Although it can be seen in the highlights that Manny suffered clean punches from Keith, he still managed to dominate his opponent and hurt him through strong blows.
Because of this, a lot of netizens immediately aired their honest thoughts about the outcome of the match and the performance of the boxing legend.
Some of them claimed that American boxer must be thankful because the person he fought was no longer in his prime.
Here are their reactions:
“Imagine Pac at 30 fighting Thurman? Sheesh, not even 35! He’d have taken him out easily. Congrats to Pac!”
“Now Thurman, you respect the Senator of the Philippines. But don’t worry you are losing to a legend Manny Pacquiao.”
“Manny is 40 turning 41 soon and dominates this fight which I think shouldn't be a split decision. If Manny was in his prime, Thurman would have been ‘nite nite’ after the knock down.”
“Thurman was still lucky coz he didn’t fought the prime Manny Pacquiao who knocks down and played big boxers.”
“Split decision? Seriously? Judges must be blind!”
