At 40, Pacquiao Still Awesome and Fast, Outclasses Broner to Retain WBA World Title

By Carlos Costa

20 Jan 2019



At 40 years-of-age, Filipino Manny Pacquiao still looks awesome. His skills are there undeniably. The 8-division world champion scored a clear unanimous decision win over Adrian "The Problem" Broner to retain his WBA regular 147-pound world title today (Jan 19) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas USA.

Scores were 117-111 and 116-112 (twice) all in favor of the Filipino icon, still one of the most popular boxers in the world.

Pacquiao's best round was the 7th in which he landed a big straight left to the chin of the defensive and ineffective Broner, rocking him, wobbling him; yet the well-conditioned 29 year-old Cincinnati native did not go down.

There were no cuts and nobody was dropped through-out the entertaining 12-rounder watched in the USA on Showtime PPV. It was Pacquiao's triumphant return to Las Vegas after a 2-year absence.





In the after-fight-interview conducted by Showtime's Jim Gray, the hugely popular "Pacman" thanked God and his fellow
Filipinos for the support. He says that at his age he feels good and is willing to continue his stellar boxing career. In addition, the Pacman said that he is contented with being a Senator while denying his current interest in running for president of the Philippines.

Finally, asked if he would fight former opponent Floyd Mayweather, Pacquiao said he would fight him again, if Mayweather would ever comes back from retirement. Mayweather, watching and listening at ringside, did not reply a word, keeping silent.

Congratulations Manny Pacquiao.
