Broner: Everybody Knows I Beat Pacquiao; I Controlled Fight!

Broner: Everybody Knows I Beat Pacquiao; I Controlled Fight!

Now 40, Pacquiao was quicker on his feet and more powerful against the 29-year-old American as he rekindled his fire at the famed MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, where he last fought in 2016.

"It is my first fight at the age of 40 so I have to prove, Manny Pacquiao is there, still part of boxing".

Pacquiao vs. Broner is the first boxing mega event of the year.

Retired great Floyd Mayweather attended the fight, fuelling speculation of a rematch against Pacquiao, who the undefeated American beat in 2015.

Pacquiao, with the MGM crowd firmly behind him, came flying out of the traps behind his jab and straight right and even if over-eagerness saw his biggest shots miss, the eight-weight victor took the first three rounds in a familiar style.

The pride of Sarangani, General Santos City also gave 47 body shots, that proved to be effective in slowing down his counterpart. "Everybody out there know I beat him".

Iran satellite fails to reach orbit
But in the actual launch, the satellite failed to reach the required speed on detachment from the rocket in the third stage. Iran has launched several short-life satellites into orbit over the past decade, including the Simorgh and the Pajouhesh.

Pacquiao again struck hard in the ninth round with a follow-up left straight that had Broner backing up.

Judges Tim Cheatham (116-112), Glenn Feldman (116-112) and Dave Moretti (117-111) all scored Pacquiao a decisive victor over Broner.

"If you ask me, I feel like I won the fight", Broner reiterated during the post-fight press conference. "He needs to get past Adrien Broner first".

The victor of the bout could potentially set to earn the richest purse in boxing history as sponsors, match makers, network outfits, including those in pay per view, would certainly line up to get a piece in probably the most important bout in boxing.

Ringside punching stats showed Pacquiao landing 112 of 568 pounds.

Broner landed no more than eight punches in any round, and just one in the final round.
