Saturday night, before a crowd of 15,601 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KO’s) got his revenge by defeating Timothy Bradley, Jr. (31-1, 12 KO’s) nearly two years after their first controversial meeting. This time around, there was no denying the “Pacman” as he scored a unanimous decision to reclaim the WBO welterweight title.
All three official scorecards were in favor for Pacquiao, 116-112 (2x) and 118-110.
