Pacquiao, who defeated Adrien Broner in January and has not fought three times in the same year since 2008. "He is fantastic. He showed himself a true Filipino, a hero", 51-year-old Raquel Sanders told AFP after watching the bout in a Manila sports complex.

Thurman started to bleed from his nose in the fifth round and looked beaten but he recovered in the middle of the fight before Pacquiao stormed back to take the last few rounds.

As it stands, "Pac Man" as he's affectionately called within the fight community, is the only professional boxer in history to win World Championships in 8 different weight divisions.

Malacañang congratulated Senator Manny Pacquiao for winning his match against Keith Thurman, saying the Philippines' boxing champ once again brought honor to the country and united Filipinos across the globe.

Pacquiao drew on all of his experience in the 12th, skipping out of range cleverly to keep Thurman at bay and score a famous win.

"I knew it was close", Thurman said about the scoring, according to the Associated Press. Thurman said he would do to Pacquiao what Pacquiao had done a decade ago to the aging De La Hoya: give him a savage beating and send him into retirement.

Neither fighter managed another knockdown, but they pushed relentlessly in front of a sellout crowd at the MGM Grand Garden that repeatedly chanted Pacquiao's name from the moment he reached the ring.

Thurman had been eager to retire Pacquiao, but he even couldn't hurt the ageless wonder.

Pacquiao, though, responded in the 10th round with blows to the body and Thurman couldn't produce the big finish he realistically needed in the 12th.

"I wish I had a bit more output to go toe-to-toe".

Teddy Atlas breaks down how Manny Pacquiao claimed a split-decision victory over Keith Thurman. "Thank you everybody, and thank you Manny Pacquiao".
