  • LOS ANGELES CA- DECEMBER 01 Floyd Mayweather Jr. looks on ringside before the fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury during the WBC Heavyweight Champioinship at Staples Center

Manny Pacquiao rocked Adrien Broner twice and chased him all night Saturday to retain the World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight crown for the first time before a crowd of 13,025 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

As usual, much of the attention in the lead-up is on the Philippines' eight-division world champion Pacquiao, but who is the man in the opposite corner?

Two judges favored Pacquiao by a 116-112 score, while the third had it 117-111.

In the early rounds, Pacquiao came out firing, charging at Broner again and again with jabs and flurries to the body.

Mayweather, whose last outing was a farce of an exhibition bout against a Japanese kickboxer, refused the entreaties of a ringside TV reporter to indicate whether he would be willing to fight Pacquiao again.

Pacquiao almost knocked his opponent down again in the ninth when he delivered a clean left hook to Broner's chin that knocked him back.




CompuBox credited Pacquiao for landing 62 more overall punches than Broner (112-of-568 to 50-of-295). He was missing. I hit him more times. As a member of PBC, Pacquiao has a number of potential big welterweight fights to have, but those fights can't happen unless he is victorious against Broner, a former champion who is looking for his career-defining win. "Everybody out there know I beat him".

"I don't believe my career is over", Pacquiao said. The American star won comfortably, and Pacquiao would later reveal that he fought with an injured right shoulder.

The undercard for Pacquiao vs Broner is scheduled to commence at around 2am.

Cost: The price for the pay-per-view is $74.99.

Turns out he had plenty, in a fight that was entertaining even if it wasn't a classic.
