It was a brutal victory for Manny Pacquiao last night as he defended his WBA welterweight belt against Adrien Broner.
The judges had the scorecard at 116-112, 116-112, 117-111
However, it wasn’t just Floyd Mayweather watching from ringside that caught many peoples' eyes, it was the reaction of Pacquiao’s wife Jinkee.
Pacquiao landed 77 body blows to Broner, which certainly caused his wife Jinkee to restrict herself from watching her husband brutally destruct Broner.
She appeared to scream when Pacquiao landed many blows to Broner and couldn’t bare see her husband in action.
The way the fight was going, many couldn’t watch as the Filipino's technique and speed was just too much for his opponent
Pacquiao landed 112 shots to Broner’s 50, showing how one sided this fight really was.
However, many fans were more interested with Mayweather being in attendance linking to speculation of a potential rematch in the near future.
Mayweather fought Pacquiao in 2015 and won by unanimous decision, but after hanging up the gloves, the Filipino was back in the ring to beat Broner and maybe have another shot at the undefeated Mayweather.
The American gave no indication when the cameras were zoomed onto his face with only a nod to give no hint of any rematch in 2019.
Controversially, Broner came out and said that he beat Pacquiao in the fight.
The Filipino landed heavy blows in the seventh and ninth rounds that sent Broner backwards, whilst the challenger was constantly looking for the counter, but Pacquiao’s speed proved to be too much for the American.
Pacquiao clearly showed the world that he still has the speed in his hands to come back into the ring after a 24-year career, and it seems he isn’t done yet.
Mayweather will be on his mind as he looks like the only possibility of ending Mayweather’s unbeaten stretch.News Now - Sport News
