Thurman: Nobody Wants To See Pacquiao-Mayweather Rematch!

Keith Thurman has continued to push for a rematch with Manny Pacquiao. He wants to avenge the first defeat of his professional career.

Last month at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Pacquiao won a twelve round split decision over Thurman to capture the WBA welterweight title.

Pacquiao, at 40-years-old, turned back the clock by dropping Thurman and then fighting in a toe to toe manner with the younger man for the entire fight.

Pacquiao has rejected Thurman's call for a rematch and wants to move on to other things.

One of those things, is a rematch with Floyd Mayweather.

Back in May of 2015, Mayweather won a twelve round unanimous decision over Pacquiao - in what is still the most financially lucrative boxing match in the history of the sport.

But Mayweather retired back in August of 2017, after stopping UFC superstar Conor McGregor in ten rounds. Since September of 2015, Mayweather has only had one official fight.

He briefly entered the ring in December 2018, to take part in an exhibition bout and knocked out undersized kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in one easy round.

Since then, Mayweather has made hints regarding a potential return - but at the same time he continues to reject the idea of coming back and denies that he's interested in facing Pacquiao again. He was ringside, front and center, for Pacquiao's win over Thurman.

In the opinion of Thurman, the fans have zero interest in watching a second fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather.

He believes that a rematch between himself and Pacquiao would be a far more exciting contest.

"At the end to the day, nobody wants to see it. Real fight fans know, it ain't gonna be more exciting then what Keith Thurman just did [with Pacquiao]," Thurman said to TMZ.
