Manny Pacquiao at 40 still a Champion

Congratulation once again to Manny Pacquiao WBA Welterweight the Filipino Champion.

In his first fight on U.S. soil since 2016, and his first fight as a 40-year-old, Manny Pacquiao cruised to a unanimous decision victory over Adrien Broner at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to retain his secondary WBA welterweight title. Using aggression and quickness, Pacquiao outclassed the reticent Broner, who sat back in an attempt to counter, but threw hardly any punches, and landed even fewer. ” (2019 Jan 19 CBS Sports)

“Manny Pacquiao destroys Adrien Broner via unanimous decision, wants to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. again.
