In the third and final installment of their trilogy, Filipino ring legend Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (58-6-2, 38 KOs) scored an entertaining twelve round unanimous decision over two-division former world champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley (33-2-1, 13 KOs) in front of a crowd of 14,665 on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The bout started off in tactical mode, but things heated up midway with some exciting exchanges. Pacquiao knocked down Bradley at the end of round seven. Bradley came back to stagger Pacman in round eight. Pacquiao dropped Bradley again in round nine. In the end, scores were 116-110 on all three cards.
