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.

Props to Pacman. He was strong, fast, conditioned, experienced, crafty, determined and that damn chin was granite. What a performance because Keith was a great opponent and fought a great fight!
