DAMN! He was out cold!

 

At the Thurman/Pacquiao fight. Non-televised fights streaming on Twitter and FB. Manny has some of his fighters putting in work. Both scored KO's in their fights so far. One was a KO and the other a TKO. Maybe a small boxing rivalry brewing between Mexico and the Philippines.  Philippines up 2-0 so far.

Caleb Plant just took Mike Lee's lunch money! Straight punked him. 3rd Round TKO.

Body work is so underrated! Nery just stopped Payano with a killer body shot.

Thurman was having a really good round 1 then he got dropped at the end of it. clean shot, but nothing devastating

Pac has his movement and speed. Thurman's going to need to land something heavy to change the dynamic of how this is playing out

Yea couldn't have been bad, he actually had an ear to ear smile, while he's still on his back

early body work is smart from Thurman, he has to slow him down somehow

 

Thurman starting to land a little more

Thurman is landing 1 shot at a time, Pac is throwing 6-7 punch combos

 

 

truth be told, i'm am somewhat suspicious of Pac's speed. He's moving like he did 10 years ago, that doesn't happen naturally

Thurman does not react well to body shots at all

 

Errol Spence would have man begging for mercy

good fight, Pac should win on the cards. I had it 116-111 pac

Pac don't want them problems with Errol

 

he'll retire that man permanently 

 

 

respect to Thurman for making that 2nd half competitive and being cool post-fight. no excuses and all credit to his opponent

I noticed that as well. Can't say much about it unless proof comes out (since he's been dogged by these before), and the only way I had him winning was by SD, but it did seem odd.

 

Great fight though

Fairly amazing stuff from Manny last night.  I didn’t think he had it in him.  PEDs or no, the guy is a legend.

 

Props to Thurman for grinding it out.  I believe that body shot he took in the ?8th/9th? takes out 95% of guys but Thurman walked it off.

 

Great fight.

I registered for a betting site last night and almost put $150 on Thurman, but punked out at the last minute. Last night was a reminder of how little I know about boxing. 

 

Yikes!

agility usually doesn't leave you and come back naturally. He wasn't moving like that when he fought Jeff Horn

Maybe it's possible he was dealing with a temporary and undisclosed health condition or injury, and that was the source of the agility loss at the time, as opposed to just aging.

Just speculating whether it's a possibility, that's all, because that's just what I do.

Manny looked like he did when he was 30 last night. I wonder if he had an Alex Ariza smoothie.
