Pacman Taste Sweet Revenge
Manny Pacquiao rocks Timothy Bradley with a straight left during their WBO World Welterweight Championship title match at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas Nevada on Apr. 12, 2014. The long wait was well worth it for Manny Pacquiao who regained his pride soothe his bruised ego and became a world champion again Saturday night. That came after the fighting congressman from Province of Sarangani scored a 12 round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Tim Bradley of the United States before a near sellout crowd of 15,600 at the MGM Grand. The win was sweet revenge for the 35 yr. old Pacquiao who lost to Bradley age 30 on a controversial split verdict almost 2 years ago. In the much awaited rematch there was no doubt Pacquiao was the better fighter as he scored heavily in rounds 2 and 3 and during the last few rounds when he unleashed flurries that had Bradley either looking for for cover or stumbling across the ring like a skid row drunk. Compubox showed Pacquiao throwing a total of 563 punches and landing 198 for 35% while Bradley had 627 but connected just 141 for 22%. Of the 563 Pacman unleashed 344 power punches and landed 148 for 43%. Bradley almost had the same number with 340 but he connected just 109 for 32%.
