I didn't think it would be close and I thought he would stop Thurman. Pacquiao won clean and clear but it was very close if he didn't land that bodyshot late in the fight he may very well have broken down from exhaustion. Thurman was landing more as Pac got more tired and when the fight ended, he was more relieved than excited. The experience got him through but he should 100% retire now or fight an easy fight in the Philippines as a send-off. The only reason this fight was close was not because of skills, speed, footwork or anything like that, it was simply lack of stamina that comes with age. Pac was dominating the first 5 rounds and in his prime would have stopped Thurman inside 5. As I said, there are levels to this game and as Bradley said, Pac's B, C game is better than everyone's A game. I don't think Thurman looked bad, he looked his usual self, he just got folded to the body and he has never reacted well to those at any point in his career. This also proves that Pac has an iron chin and amazing recovery powers. I don't know how many power punchers he need to fight to prove that. Ever since he got KO'd by a roided to the gills JMM who was fighting him for the 4th time with a perfect shot, everyone thinks that a clean right hand is all it takes. I think Pac and his team knows Pac shouldn't be fighting at this level anymore, that was his last hurrah!
