Manny Pacquiao turned back the clock as the Filipino legend claimed the WBA welterweight championship after scoring a split-decision win against Keith Thurman.

One judge scored the welterweight bout 114-113 to Thurman (29-1), who was knocked down by Pacquiao in the opening round on Saturday.

Thurman – who was the WBA Super holder – had vowed to send Pacquiao into retirement but the latter showed he still has plenty left in the tank.

Pacquiao retained his WBA Regular welterweight crown with a unanimous-decision victory over Adrien Broner in January and he stormed out of the blocks at the iconic American venue.

After being sent to the canvas in the first round, Thurman recovered well as he soaked up Pacquiao's punches, but he was unable to snap his opponent's dominance.

The aggressor as he trailed on points, Thurman took the fight to Pacquiao in the middle rounds, however, he was hurt with a big body shot in the 10th and he was unable to preserve his unbeaten status.

split decision payoff for that one judge. He should be banned from boxing.

[QUOTE=yoshik;19920842]Jesus Christ you can definitely tell who knowledgable boxing fns are. Those complaining that there was a robbery should be buried alive and have to watch this fight over and over until they expire. Pac landed the more damaging blows,…
