Pacquiao dominates Broner, sets sight on Mayweather rematch

At age 40, Manny Pacquiao still moves like a boxer in his prime.

In the showcase fight, the world’s only eight-division world champion schooled the younger Adrien Broner. Pacquiao took a dominant unanimous decision win to retain the WBA World Welterweight Championship, Sunday afternoon at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The match-up was as lopsided as they come, as the scorecards read 117-111, 116-112, 116-112.

“At the age of forty I still give my best,” shared Pacquiao, who is now 61-7-2 (39KOs).

“I don’t believe my career is over. I proved it against Matthysse and I proved it again at the age of forty. Manny Pacquiao’s journey still continues.”

A livid Broner contested the decision after the bout, saying, “I beat him! Everybody out there knows I beat him.”

But according to CompuBox, the American – who dropped to 33-4-1 – connected on just an average of eight punches per round.

Seeing Broner pull back for much of the fight, Pacquiao needed to outwork his opponent for 12 rounds. At the end of the day, all the Filipino icon needed to do was take advantage of Broner’s deliberate style.

Now, Pacquiao awaits if whether a Mayweather rematch could come through fruition – a battle between two legends who are now in their 40s.

“Tell him to come back to the ring and we will fight. I’m willing to fight him again, if he’s willing to come back in boxing.” shared Pacquiao, who had a visit from Mayweather in the locker room prior to the fight.
