Since that knockout seen 'round the world at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez in December 2012, Manny Pacquiao has scored back-to-back unanimous decisions. First, Pacquiao was able to defeat Brandon Rios five months ago. And tonight, Pac-Man got his revenge after a controversial split decision loss to Timothy Bradley nearly two years ago. And this time around, Manny made sure the judges knew that there was a clear-cut winner.
At the beginning, Bradley came out aggressive and possibly scored the first round on that fact alone. But Pacquiao remained resilient by getting in his knocks, making them count and using Timothy's strategy against him. By the end of the third round, Bradley already looked slightly winded. Still, Bradley dug down and continued applying pressure in the next couple of rounds. Then, midway through the fight, Pac-Man took over, landing one solid punch after another which Bradley was surprisingly able to shake off. Eventually, fatigue set in for Bradley and any hopes of a comeback seemed slim. Pacquiao stayed on the offensive because he probably didn't want to leave anything up to chance. A smart approach if you ask us. When it was all said and done, the judges scored the bout 118-110, 116-112 and 116-112 in favor of Pacquiao.
