Despite Pacquiao rejecting the claims, Amir Khan is adamant he will fight the 40-year-old in Saudi Arabia later this year.

Thurman also showed a great deal of class while praising Pacquiao in his post-fight interview.

Pacquiao is the only eight- -division champion in boxing history, but he's 40.

Thurman then continued his pace but absorbed Pacquiao's offense through an uppercut.

"We'll have to see what kind of offers I get", he said. But Pacquiao slipped out of danger and took control of the center of the ring.

Meanwhile, a former opponent of Thurman seems to make his pitch as the next challenger of Pacquiao.

Khan later told PA: "The next fight is going to be back in Saudi Arabia, it is going to be in Riyadh this time and it is going to be on November 8".

"My conditioning and my output was just behind Manny Pacquiao's", Thurman said. "I knew I had to do something big in the later rounds but he was just too good". Thurman forced Pacquiao to the ropes in the ninth round before the boxing legend stayed upright. "My opponent is a good fighter and boxer".

In the Season 10 trailer, Daryl seems ready to take on Negan. "It was a very hard one, and it's not connected to my heart". The news was received well by the fans of The Walking Dead universe, and fans of Andrew Lincoln .

He tweeted: "I've always said I'm not afraid to let my 0 go, if you can beat me - beat me".

Thurman's 192 power shots (anything other than a jab) were the most-landed on Pacquiao in the 43 fights of his that CompuBox has tracked.

Pacquiao won the final round on two judges' cards, while Feldman's 12th-round score for Thurman kept Pacquiao from winning by unanimous decision.

It was subsequently revealed that Pacquiao fought with a torn rotator cuff.

"It was a blessing and a lesson".

Thurman charged into this showdown saying he would send Pacquiao into retirement, adding he would use a gallant victory here to push his case for greatness.

The majority of the top guns of the 147-lb division were in attendance, including the now-retired Floyd Mayweather, who arrived during the main supporting fight between Cuban Yordenis Ugas and Omar Figueroa Jr.

After a few hours, Pacquiao politely excused himself to rest and as if on cue, the guests made a line to the exit door, leaving the future Hall of Famer in the loving arms of his wife Jinkee and kids.
