Manny Pacquiao ‘Pacman’ still as quick as he is early on and he wins after 12 rounds.
Brandon Rios’ face showing the wrath of Pacquiao and blood streaming from his left eye.
Pacman is looking better than he has in years.
Meanwhile, with no stoppage wins since 2009 and having suffered a thunderous knockout at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez in his last fight, Manny Pacquiao has enough left to tame the wild fury of Brandon Rios.
Pacquiao is a rarity in boxing, a superstar, a longtime, no doubt, pound-for-pound contender and almost always entertaining to watch.
For all the greatness that Floyd Mayweather possesses, that last part has been the part that has been lacking during his rise to the top of the boxing world.
Pacquiao’s style may have finally caught up to him in his last bout when Juan Manuel Marquez connected with a shocking punch that left Pacquiao out cold.
That loss came after a ‘loss’ in name only when Timothy Bradley was gifted a win that made no sense to almost anyone outside of the two judges who saw a Bradley victory.
Today, Manny will face off with Brandon Rios on HBO pay-per-view in the rare main event that promises an exciting fight
Boxing is not so well kept dirty secret that financially, most fighters can never stop.
Rios has been one of the current generation’s most reliably exciting fighters.
Even in positions where he has struggled to make weight and looked near dead on the scales, he has shown up the next night and gone to war with toe-to-toe brawlers.
