Pacquiao is back

The Philippine boxer Manny Pacquiao has won back his World Boxing Organisation (WBO) welterweight belt with a unanimous point’s decision over the reigning champion Timothy Bradley from the USA, who was defeated for the first time in his professional career.

Pacquiao did not just gain revenge for the contentious point’s defeat he suffered against Bradley in 2012, he also managed to show his old form and recover his reputation in the 12-round fight that was watched by more than 15,000 fight fans.

This time there was no controversy as the three judges all agreed with all fans and experts watching that Pacquiao was the justified winner of the bout that took place in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

One of the judges made Pacquiao the winner by 118 to 110 while the other two scored the bout 116-112 in favour of the Philippine, who grew throughout the fight with the better technique which enabled him to finish as the more aggressive fighter.
