40-year-old boxing legend Manny Pacquiao defeated Adrien Broner with unanimous decision scores of 116-112, 116-112, and 117-111 in last night’s Showtime PPV bout. Pacquiao dominated his opponent throughout the whole 12 rounds to retain his WBA world welterweight title. Broner was lackluster in his performance only throwing 295 punches against Pacman’s 568 as the Fighting Pride of the Philippines outperformed his opponent with speed, defense and great conditioning. At the end of the match, Pacquiao commented about his age and longevity in the sport, “At the age of 40 I still give my best,” Pacquiao told the crowd. “I wanted to be more aggressive, but my coach told me to not be careless.” He continued, “I don’t believe my career is over. I proved it against Matthysse and I proved it again at the age of 40. Manny Pacquiao’s journey still continues.”

As for a possible Floyd Mayweather Jr. rematch, “Tell him to come back to the ring and we will fight,” Pacquiao responded to the question of another face-off with the retired fighter. “I’m willing to fight him again if he’s willing to come back in boxing.”
