Manny Pacquiao Avenges Loss, Defeats Timothy Bradley

While many felt Pacquiao did enough to win his June 2012 battle with Timothy Bradley, the official record books will forever list a loss via split decision.

They will also forever list a win via unanimous decision in their April 2014 fight.

Achieving vengeance almost two years in the making, Manny Pacquiao defeated Timothy Bradley via unanimous decision Saturday night.

Via scores of 118-110, 116-112 and 116-112, Pacquiao proved himself to be the better man and one that is not done competing at a high level. Whether he can completely restore the momentum he had prior to losing to Bradley (and then Juan Manuel Marquez) remains to be seen, but with two consecutive wins, Pacquiao is definitely still a boxer capable of getting the job done.
