Pacquiao dominates Broner in unanimous decision win

A step at a time for Pacquiao in Las Vegas return

'Pac-Man's first fight as a 40-year-old, and 70th as a professional, saw him roll back the years in flashes on the way to retaining his WBA world welterweight title and wow the MGM Grand crowd once again.

Browne maintained his ideal career record with a straightforward points victory over the former super middleweight and light heavyweight world champion.

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.

In the seventh round, Pacquiao pushed Broner back to the ropes and delivered an onslaught of punches that left Broner holding on for survival. Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, said during the post-fight press conference that Mayweather won't end a third retirement to oppose Pacquiao again.

Pacquiao almost knocked his opponent down again in the ninth when he delivered a clean left hook to Broner's chin that knocked him back. Immediately Jack stopped, but once more, after another timeout, it was agreed he could continue. He was missing. I hit him more times.

Showtime announcer Jim Gray tried to get Mayweather to climb in the ring after the fight and discuss a possible bout with Pacquiao, but Mayweather demurred.

Turns out he had plenty, in a fight that was entertaining even if it wasn't a classic.
