In his first battle on American soil since 2016, and his first battle as in his 40 years of existence, Manny Pacquiao traveled to a consistent choice triumph over Adrien Broner at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to hold his optional WBA welterweight title.

Utilizing animosity and snappiness, Pacquiao outmaneuvered the hesitant Broner, who sat trying to counter, yet tossed scarcely any punches, and landed even less. In the ring after the session, Pacquiao said he was eager to battle Floyd Mayweather, who was sitting ringside for the battle, and visited with Pacquiao in his locker room before the session.

Pacquiao said, "instruct him to return to the ring, and we will battle".

"I'm willing to battle again to Floyd Mayweather if he will return boxing." Mayweather, in any case, declined to react. In the early adjusts, Pacquiao turned out terminating, charging at Broner over and over with punches and whirlwinds to the body. Pacquiao snapped out more than 70 hits in the initial three rounds, cruising to simple successes as he dodged Broner's uncommon endeavors at counters.

The man from Cincinnati they call "The Problem" skiped, harking back to the fourth round, getting his most ideal chances of the battle on the counter, yet he just couldn't arrive reliably. Pacquiao flooded in the center rounds, finding a major left to the body in the fifth round, at that point assuming control in the seventh.

He shook Broner on numerous events, and had him in a bad position against the ropes, yet couldn't get him out of there. At that point in the ninth, Pacquiao discovered achievement again with his left hand, smashing Broner with a firm shot ideal to his face. From that point, he traveled through the last couple of rounds, as Broner got on his bicycle.

Maybe he was simply excessively harmed from the steady discipline Pacquiao was managing out, or possibly he genuinely trusted he won the session. He absolutely said as much in the ring thereafter. Broner declared to noisy scoffs from the group, "I beat him".

"Everyone out there realize I beat him. I controlled the battle. He was absent. I hit him more occasions. I beat him." Broner did not, truth be told, hit Pacquiao more occasions; the Filipino boss outlanded him 112-50. Bulldozed in the battle, Broner ate one all the more sharp hit to end his disappointing night.

This time, however, it originated from Jim Gray. "I'm 3-3-1 in my last seven, however I'd be 7-0 against you," Broner snapped. "Well... That wouldn't mean much", Gray reacted.
