Manny Pacquiao beats Adrien Broner by unanimous decision

by | sports, TOP STORIES

Senator Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao has defended his secondary welterweight title by a unanimous decision against Adrien Broner in their match at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday.

The judges handed down scores of 117-111, 116-112 and 116-112.

In the 12th round, Pacquiao pressed the fight but his opponent was on his bicycle with an eye on the clock like school is almost out.

Broner climbed a turnbuckles, signifying that he won the match, only to receive a wild boo from the crowd.

He showed more confidence to lash out Pacman in the 5th round, but his calibre of practice that he had seemed to be lacking.

For a second time, he was warned not to put the heel of his glove in Pacquiao’s face during a clinch. Nevertheless, Pacman threw unorthodox punches and angles, making him win the 5th round.

Pacquiao unleashed his strategic left cross in the seventh round, stopping Broner to snatch the victory. The latter landed some good counters but it’s Pacman who’s still has the grasp of the game.

In the 11th round, it became a cat-mouse hunt. Pacquiao tried to pursue Broner who appeared to be waiting for the time to run out.

Manny Pacquiao (c) def. Adrien Broner via unanimous decision (117-111, 116-112, 116-112)
