Floyd Mayweather’s Reaction To The Pacquiao vs Broner Fight Says It All

Pacquiao was clearly the favourite of the crowd of 13,025, who gathered at the MGM Grand arena to see if the part-time fighter still had some fight in him.

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

With Floyd Mayweather watching ringside as talk intensifies over a rematch with Pacquiao, the "Pac-Man" as he is commonly known had the crowd on their feet with a dominant win as he rolled back the years against an overwhelmed Broner.

While many observers view the fight as a stepping stone towards a possible rematch with Floyd Mayweather following their money-spinning 2015 fight, Pacquiao is looking no further than the contest with Broner as he intends to "maintain his name at the top". Our strategy we user a lot and we did a lot in the training camp for this victory. "God gave me this blessing (of good health)".

"Broner doesn't hit back with more than one punch", Fortune said of the challenger's capability to respond to quick-punching opponents. "I wanted to push more, but my trainer said 'Don't be careless". I prove it. Manny Pacquaio's journey still continues.

"I beat him. Everyone out there knows I beat him", Broner said.

Prior to tweeting about the Pacquiao-Broner fight, the account featured former Cavite governor Jonvic Remulla in what looks to be a party function in the province. "I proved it in my last fight against (Lucas Matthysse) and now proved it again".

In the early rounds, Pacquiao came out firing, charging at Broner again and again with jabs and flurries to the body. Broner never landed more than seven punches in any round.

Referee Russell Mora warned Broner (33-4-1, 24 KOs), 29, of Cincinnati, for sticking his elbow across Pacquiao's face in the second round.

In the seventh round, Pacquiao pushed Broner back to the ropes and delivered an onslaught of punches that left Broner holding on for survival.

The Filipino boxing icon continued to outstrike and outmaneuver Broner until the final bell.

Pacquiao eased off in the eighth but peaked again in the ninth.
