While he might not be the overwhelming force he was in his electrifying prime, boxing's only eight-division world champion showed that he is still pretty darn good as he easily rolled past Adrien Broner by unanimous decision to retain his secondary welterweight world title for the first time on Saturday night.
Two judges scored the bout 116-112 in favour of Pacquiao, while the third had the Filipino Senator a 117-111 victor.
In the seventh round, Pacquiao pushed Broner back to the ropes and delivered an onslaught of punches that left Broner holding on for survival. Sherdog.com saw it 118-110 for Pacquiao, who indicated that he wants to fight Floy Mayweather Jr. next or the victor of the upcoming Mikey Garcia-Errol Spence Jr. bout. The Filipino mega star used a superb right jab to set up his lethal straight left throughout the bout and he dug to Broner's body repeatedly in every round. "Everybody out there knows I beat him".

He spent the first five years of his career with the Titans, who selected him in the fourth round of the 2002 draft. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office did not respond immediately to Newsweek 's request for comment.
"I wanted to push more but my trainer said "do not be careless, wait for him and you counter", Pacquiao said.
But that's not what the compubox stats were showing as Pacquiao was clearly the more aggressive, more efficient fighter as the Fighting Senator of the Philippines landed more punches and hits that mattered.
The final few rounds were anticlimactic as Broner played it safe and Pacquiao stayed in control. "I'm 3-3-1 in my last seven, but I'd be 7-0 against you", Broner snapped. How can you watch this blockbuster fight online?

"This is a challenge because it is my first fight as a 40-year-old", said Pacquiao.
The victor of the bout could potentially set to earn the richest purse in boxing history as sponsors, match makers, network outfits, including those in pay per view, would certainly line up to get a piece in probably the most important bout in boxing.
