Manny Pacquiao outlasted American Timothy Bradley in a one-sided unanimous decision last night in what the Filipino fighter says was the final fight of his long career.
Pacquiao won the Las Vegas bout 116-110 on all three score cards, avenging a shock split-decision loss to Bradley back in 2012. Speaking afterwards, Pacquiao said he intends to now retire from boxing.
"I've made a commitment to my family that I'm going to retire after this," said Pacquiao in quotes reported by the BBC.
It was a powerful performance from the winner, who put Bradley on the canvas in the seventh and night rounds before coasting to the finish.
If Pacquiao does retire, he will leave the sports as a six-weight world champion with a record of 58-6-2.
