Amir Khan refuses to rule out November showdown with Manny Pacquiao

Boxing Pacquiao vs Thurman Weigh Ins

Manny Pacquiao (white trunks) lands a hit against Keith Thurman (red/white/blue trunks) during their WBA welterweight championship bout at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Based on CPPO's monitoring in different police stations in North Cotabato, no crime has ever been committed on July 21.

"The next time I see him, we'll sit down and talk about who's next or maybe it might be over", said the 59-year-old Roach.

Likewise, no traffic incident was reported on Sunday in Kidapawan City.

Thurman established himself as one of the top names in the 147-pound class with big wins over Robert Guerrero, Shawn Porter, and Danny Garcia, but injuries among other issues forced him to be out of action for almost two years. "Indeed, he is a living legend in the field of sports", he stressed.

The 30-year old American had a height, reach, and age advantage but he got knocked down with less than a minute to go in the first round and was chasing the fight from then on.

"He has once again proved his title as one of the best boxers".

Mr. Pacquiao was a 115-112, 113-114 and 115-112 victor over Mr. Thurman, which he punctuated with a knockdown in the opening round.

He recovered in the middle of the contest, but Pacquiao stormed back to take the last few rounds.

Roach, who began training Pacquiao in mid-2001, said "the last thing I want to happen is he gets hurt". "I will be back".

"I wish I had a little bit more output to go toe to toe", Thurman told U.S. broadcasters.

TMZ recently caught up with underdog heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz and asked him about a rematch between Pacquiao and Mayweather.

"I knew without a doubt I would become a fighter - I knew that the underdog can, and often does, win".

Manny Pacquiao may be 40, but he showed Saturday night that he's not over the hill.

His win takes his record to 62-7-2 with 39 knockouts. Thurman, meanwhile, suffered his first career loss after a 29-0 start with 22 knockouts.
