Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is once again the WBO welterweight champion after beating Timothy “the Desert Storm” Bradley via a unanimous decision on Saturday night on HBO pay-per-view.
While Pacman (56-5-2, 38 KO) may not be as good when he was in his prime, he still proved that he is one of the world’s best fighter and erased any doubts that he can beat the Desert Storm (31-1, 12 KO).
Bradley showed that he prepared for the fight and lived up to his thrash talking that he will try to knock out Pacquiao. However, the Filipino pride was a lot better and wiser than their first controversial fight in 2012 were he loss.
This time, Pacquiao got his revenge winning two scorecards by 116-112 margins and a third by a 118-110 score.
He also handed Bradley his first professional loss in his 10-year boxing career.
“I knew I had to do more in this fight than I did in the last fight,” said Pacquiao.
Meanwhile, Bradley has nothing bad to say against Pacman and even clapped when Pacquiao was declared the undisputed winner.
“I have no excuses. Stuff happens. I got nothing to say about it. You can’t say nothing against Manny,”Bradley said. “I lost to one of the best fighters in the world. Manny fought his heart out.”
Indeed, Pacman is one of the best fighters, even one of the all-time greats, and he showed that to the world in a convincing win while back on top of his game.
