Maverick Manny Pacquiao wins a welterweight title at 40

40-year-old Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao scripted one more improbable chapter in his glittering career after an age-defying split decision win over Keith Thurman. Pacquiao, a full decade older than 30-year-old Thurman, literally rolled back years with a classic performance outpunching Thurman by 686 to 571 at MGM Grand Garden Arena. It was the Filipino’s 62nd victory of a 71-fight career spanning 24 years.
