Manny Pacquiao showed on Saturday night he’s still got plenty of fight for a fighter on the wrong side of 40.
After Pacquiao dominated Adrien Broner, defending his welterweight title in Las Vegas, the Filipino challenged Floyd Mayweather to a rematch.
With Mayweather watching from ringside, Pacquiao showed flashes of his old speed in winning a unanimous 12-round decision over Broner to easily defend his piece of the welterweight title. It was the 61st win of a remarkable career in which Pacquiao has won titles in eight weight classes.
Two judges favoured Pacquiao by a 116-112 score, while the third had it 117-111. Pacquiao, whose pro career stretches back 24 years, showed he still has the speed that carried him over his career.
Pacquiao is now hoping to avenge his 2015 loss to Mayweather.
“Tell him to come back to the ring and we will fight,” Pacquiao said. “I am willing to fight again Floyd Mayweather. If he is willing to come back in boxing.”
