  • A step at a time for Pacquiao in Las Vegas return

World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight champ Manny Pacquiao and his challenger Adrien Broner both made the contracted weight for their title match tomorrow night at The MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Broner has triumphed in 33 of his 38 fights so far and will be desperate to add Pacquiao's scalp to his record.

Two judges favored Pacquiao by a 116-112 score, while the third had it 117-111. Broner covered up and retreated, only to be buzzed again by follow-up punches.

He said: "I am happy to be back here and happy to be fighting [tonight]".

The pride of Sarangani, General Santos City also gave 47 body shots, that proved to be effective in slowing down his counterpart.

"You keep asking me about Manny Pacquiao", Mayweather said during the fight. He was missing. I hit him clean more times.


Pacquiao, whose pro career stretches back 24 years, showed he still has the speed that carried him over his spectacular career.

"The Manny Pacquiao journey will still continue", Pacquiao said. Pacquiao was a lean 146 pounds while Broner was a trim 146.5 at the official weigh-in held at the same venue of their bout. "Everybody out there knows I beat him". "I'm 3-3-1 in my last seven, but I'd be 7-0 against you", Broner snapped.

The fight takes place on Saturday, January 19 with fans in the United Kingdom having to wait up until the early hours of Sunday morning to watch the action.

Cost: The price for the pay-per-view is $74.99.

Broner's best round might have been the 11th, but even though he clearly needed a stoppage to avoid three straight fights without a win, he barely threatened.

According to CompuBox's unofficial statistics, Broner landed just 50 overall punches during their 12-round bout.
