Eight-division boxing world champion and reigning WBA (Super) Welterweight World Champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao had a little Throwback Tuesday of his own, as he posted a couple of photos from his welterweight clash with American Keith "One Time" Thurman.
Pacquiao posted a number of photos of the weigh-ins and fight night to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the encounter that happened in July 20th, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Pacquiao, who was a full decade older than Thurman, scored an early knockdown in the first round and never looked back as he went on to win via split decision to hand the American star his first career loss and capture the WBA's primary welterweight title.
It was also Pacquiao's biggest win in quite a while, and it showed that even in his 40s, the Pinoy icon was still in the top tier of the sport.
Now, Pacquiao remains a prime target for many of the division's young guns and champions like Mikey Garcia, Errol Spence Jr, and Terence Crawford. Thurman has also been vocal about wanting a rematch with Pacquiao.
For now, it's unclear what Pacquiao's next move will be, given that the COVID-19 pandemic has essentially put the world on hold.
