Filipino boxing champ, Manny Pacquiao destroyed Adrien Broner to retain his WBA welterweight title yesterday.
A trim-looking Pacquiao looked like the faster fighter, coming away with the victory in Las Vegas via unanimous decision.
Pacquiao dominated the evening, and the fight took a turning point in the seventh round, when a straight left from the Filipino turned into a foray of punches. Pacquiao also nearly knocked down his opponent in the ninth, but Broner’s conditioning appeared to be on point.
Broner mostly played defensive and evaded for the back-end of the fight, leading to the easy win for Pacquiao, a future Hall of Famer who moved to 61-4-2, with 39 knockouts.
The judges scored the fight 117-111, 116-112, 116-112, with Pacquiao saying after the fight that he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather, who was in the crowd at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand.
