Manny Pacquiao wins via unanimous decision, knocks down Bradley twice
Manny Pacquiao returned to the ring for one last time with a bang.
With the aim to end his career with flying colors, Pacquaio knocked down Timothy Bradley twice on his way to a unanimous 12-round decision in their welterweight showdown.
The judges all turned in identical scorecards of: 116-110. It was Pacquiao’s first trip to the ring since a loss to Floyd Mayweather nearly a year ago and the 37-year-old looked sharp once he settled in.
Pacquiao knocked Bradley down in the seventh round, though Bradley seemed to have slipped. He left no doubt in the ninth round with a big left hand that sent Bradley sprawling.
While Pacquiao has claimed this would be his final fight, it would be difficult for him to walk away after such a great performance.
