Pacman beats Bradley,
Negrenses hail victory

Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao failed to knockout Timothy Bradley but his victory by unanimous decision was enough for Negrenses to re-affirm their confidence in his punches as he got back the WBO welterweight title he lost to Bradley two years ago.

Bacolod City Rep. Evelio Leonardia, who once again carried the Philippine flag in yesterday’s blockbuster fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, said Pacquiao “has proven what prayers and determination can do – from the shadows of doubt cast by his questionable defeat two years ago.”

“Manny Pacquiao has risen to prove he reigns supreme in the World Boxing Organization welterweight division,” Leonardia said.moremoremore
