Pacquiao Takes Decision Victory Over Bradley, Claims Retirement

Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao returned to the ring in vintage form on Saturday night (April 9), resulting in a unanimous decision over Timothy Bradley.

In the fight, the boxing star knocked down his rival twice, once in the seventh and another in the ninth, while cruising to a decision win to close out their trilogy.

While Bradley counter-punched well early and showed a lot of movement, Pacquiao just put on a spectacular performance, dominating with sharp left hands and exchanging with Bradley throughout.

All three judges scored the fight the same, 116-110, for Manny Pacquiao, who said after the fight that it was his last.

"Yes, as of now I am retired," Pacquiao said. "I am going to go home and think about it, but I want to be with my family. I want to serve the people [of the Philippines]."

Pacquiao, 37, will run for one of 12 senate seats in the Philippines next month. He improved to 58-6-2.
