OUTSIDE LOOKING IN: Lessons Broner could've learned in futile bid vs Pacquiao


PhilBoxing.com




World Boxing Association welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao?s defeated challenger Adrien Broner might have failed in his bid to dethrone the Filipino belt-owner in their title encounter Sunday last week, but there were lessons he could have learned to diminish the impact of humiliation he suffered from the hands of his conqueror.

During the second stop of the media tour in Los Angeles to promote the coming fight, for instance, Broner taunted the reigning champ on his Asian heritage took issues with the media and made disgusting joke about Freddie Roach.

The fighting senator from the Philippines instead of returning the compliments gave the Cincinnati Kid by just smiling and shot back chuckling: ?Broner?s a funny guy. I think after his boxing career, he could have another career as a comedian. I don?t get upset about the jokes. I can?t help but laugh when I look at his face.?

In the final press conference held two days before the title showdown, the trash-talking Broner transformed the occasion to an exchange of profanities with Hall of Fame broadcaster Al Bernstein.

Pacquiao, in his turn to speak cited a verse in the Bible calling for calm and sobriety.

The Philippines' pride, again, sent Broner back to school, this time giving him a neat lesson in aggressive boxing resulting in a unanimous decision victory in the process, at age 40, kept his 147-pound diadem safe up his sleeves.

But during the traditional post-fight news conference the vanquished fighter cried foul, claiming he was robbed of victory and the much-coveted crown, the eight-division champ merely shrugged off the silly accusation and pointed the fight statistics, copies of which were were handed-out to both camps and members of media.

The official records showed, among others, Pacquiao landing 112 of 568 total punches thrown, 371 jabs and 82 o 197 power shots thrown.

Broner, on the other hand, could only connect with 50 of total punches thrown, 11 of 115 jabs and 39 of 180 power shots given. The challenger?s 50 shots connection was his career low for a 12 round fight. He never landed in a double digit punch in every round.

Manny improved his body and jab attacks as 42% of his landed punches were body shots after landing 20.2% in his previous five fights.

Manny averaged 30.9 jabs thrown per round after averaging 17.9 in his previous 5 fights.

Records completely showed Pacquiao was still dominant at 40 years old. The 29-year-old Broner?s post-fight claim he won the fight was one hundred percent unfounded, preposterous and ?delusional by almost all media outfits. ?

Judges Tim Cheatham and Glenn Feldman saw the defending titlist winning in identical 116-112 decisions. The third judge Dave Moretti saw the Filipino belt-owner the winner, too, 117-111.

The Manila Times gave Pacquiao 10 rounds and Broner only two.
