The good, the bad and the dirty in the week of boxing: From Pacquiao's dominance to absurdity of Broner

Sporting News - 01-21


Here are the highs and lows in the week of boxing. -Manny Pacquiao just continues to amaze the world. After his seventh-round knockout of Lucas Matthysse in July, people believed the old "Pac-Man" was back. But some felt that maybe it was due to Matthysse being a stationary target. Well, in his first fight at the age of 40, boxing's only eight-division world champion showed he's still got plenty in the tank by routing Adrien Broner in front of a sellout crowd of 13,025 fans at the MGM Grand Garden Arena to retain the WBA (regular) welterweight title.
