LOOK: Floyd Mayweather Jr. greets Manny Pacquiao before title bout

Eight-division boxing world champion and reigning WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao was greeted by former rival Floyd "Money" Mayweather backstage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada prior to his title defense against Adrien Broner, Saturday evening (Sunday morning, Manila time).  #PacBroner pic.twitter.com/ltR8zcCYA9 — Manny Pacquiao (@mannypacquiao) January 20, 2019 Mayweather Jr. approached the Filipino boxing icon as he was warming up and making last-minute preparations before his in-ring return in Las Vegas.  The two shared the ring back in May of 2015, with Mayweather emerging victorious via unanimous decision after 12 rounds.  According to rumblings however, it may not be the last time that the two mix it up inside the boxing ring.  Rumour has it that if Pacquiao can get past Broner, it could set up a possible rematch with "Money" later this year.  Mayweather, a five-division world champion with an unparalleled 50-0 professional record, officially retired from boxing in 2015, but came back in 2017 for a mega-money fight against UFC superstar Conor McGregor, which he won via TKO in the tenth round.  The 41-year old Mayweather is coming off a one-round destruction of Japanese kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition match in Japan back in New Year's Eve.  .....»»

Manny Pacquiao outpunches Adrien Broner to retain WBA title

Looking like a man ten years younger, 40-year old eight-division boxing world champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao punched his way to a unanimous decision win over American Adrien "AB" Broner to retain the WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Championship at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Nevada, Sunday afternoon (Manila time). From the opening bell, Pacquiao was the aggressor as he controlled the center of the ring, shooting in and landing three-to-four punch combinations at a time. Broner, eleven years Pacquiao's junior, seemed to be content with trying to catch Pacquiao off counters and clinches. Pacquiao continued to dictate the tempo of the fight with his jabs and combinations, while Broner tried to find his timing, finding little success with his shots. The champion had a massive seventh round as he landed a couple of left hands that stunned Broner. Pacquiao began to tee off on Broner, who resorted to clinches and collar tie-ups to survive. Pacquiao again struck hard in the ninth round with a follow-up left straight that had Broner backing up. This time around however, Broner managed to defend well and roll with Pacquiao's flurry. The Filipino boxing icon continued to outstrike and outmaneuver Broner until the final bell.  After 12 rounds, the judges scored the bout 117-111, 116-112, and 116-112 in favor of Pacquiao who successfully retained his WBA welterweight title for a 15th successful world title defense in his career, while also notching his tremendous 61st career win. .....»»
