Manny Pacquiao Throttles Adrien Broner, Retains WBA Welterweight Title

LOS ANGELES CA- DECEMBER 01 Floyd Mayweather Jr. looks on ringside before the fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury during the WBC Heavyweight Champioinship at Staples Center

While he might not be the overwhelming force he was in his electrifying prime, boxing's only eight-division world champion showed that he was still pretty darn good as he easily rolled past Adrien Broner by unanimous decision Saturday night to retain his secondary welterweight world title for the first time.

In front of a sell-out crowd of 13,025 at the MGM Grand, the 40-year-old Filipino dominated, using all his experience as Broner struggled to use his reach to trouble Pacquiao.

About the only person in attendance who disagreed with the outcome was Broner (33-4-1), who protested the result emphatically in his post fight interview.

Pacquiao may be 40 now but he is determined to prove he can still cut it at the top.

"You keep asking me about Manny Pacquiao, " Mayweather said during the fight.

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

The boxing faithful would surely be excited at the prospect of witnessing another showcase event involving two giants of the sport in Pacquiao and Mayweather, which will again be a multi-million dollar contest, similar to the first time.

"I don't believe my career is over", Pacquiao said.

"Broner doesn't hit back with more than one punch", Fortune said of the challenger's capability to respond to quick-punching opponents.

"Tell Floyd to come back to the ring and we will fight, I'm willing to fight Floyd."
Broner covered up and retreated, only to be buzzed again by follow-up punches. He just had no answers for anything Pacquiao threw at him.

In the seventh round, Pacquiao pushed Broner back to the ropes and delivered an onslaught of punches that left Broner holding on for survival.

There were no knockdowns, but Pacquiao landed the heavier punches _ and lots of them. Here's everything you need to know.
