Manny Pacquiao returned to the ring Saturday night following a near year long layoff following his loss to Floyd Mayweather, Jr and shoulder surgery for a torn rotator cuff to take on Timothy Bradley for a third time at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
This was classic Pac-Man from the opening bell as the former pound for pound champion knocked Bradley down in the seventh round and again in ninth round with a big left hand that sent Bradley reeling.
All three judges scored the contest 116-110 in favor of Pacquiao.
Let's be honest...
There should have never been a Pac-Bradley trilogy these series of bouts started out as tainted as possible with Bradley winning their first bout in 2012 in a fight that even the most novice boxing fan could see that Pacquiao had dominated for beginning to end, then in 2014's rematch Manny once again dominated Bradley coming away with a unanimous decision.
Why did this fight happen instead of Kahn or Crawford?
I'll give you $20 million reasons plus Bradley was an easy mark.
