  • A step at a time for Pacquiao in Las Vegas return

"The Manny Pacquiao journey will still continue".

That controversial relationship was front and center as Philippine party-list group WOW Pilipinas secured an assumed multimillion-dollar sponsorship deal to appear on the ring mat of Senator Manny Pacquiao's WBA welterweight title bout with Adrien Broner on Saturday, January 19 (Sunday, January 20, Manila time) at the MGM Grand Las Vegas.

Judges Tim Cheatham (116-112), Glenn Feldman (116-112) and Dave Moretti (117-111) all scored Pacquiao a decisive victor over Broner. Yahoo Sports had Pacquiao by shutout, 120-108. He landed only one punch in the final round and as he has always done when he has stepped up to face an elite opponent, he lost a decisive decision: Pacquiao, Mikey Garcia, Shawn Porter and Marcos Maidana. Pacquiao began to tee off on Broner, who resorted to clinches and collar tie-ups to survive. "I'm so happy because God gave me this good health". He was missing. I hit him clean more times.

Pacquiao almost knocked his opponent down again in the ninth when he delivered a clean left hook to Broner's chin that knocked him back. He also displayed some power, though he was never able to drop Broner.

The telecast starts at 6 oclock in the evening from Las Vegas, Nevada.

The undercard for Pacquiao vs Broner is scheduled to commence at around 2am.

Death penalty for Canadian escalates China-Canada tensions
Shortly after their arrest, detainees in China two Canadians on charges of endangering the security of the state. The Schellenberg family released a statement Monday asking the Canadian government to protect its citizens.

Broner, eleven years Pacquiao's junior, seemed to be content with trying to catch Pacquiao off counters and clinches.

"I beat him", said Broner even before the decision was handed out.

Mayweather watched it all intently from his ringside seat, and was coy about possibly coming out of retirement for a reprise of the 2015 lacklustre fight Mayweather won by decision over Pacquiao.

Pacquiao might have slowed down with time but his jab and fast hands saw him control the 24th world title fight of a career that will take him into the Hall of Fame, but he is far from finished.

From there, he cruised through the final few rounds, as Broner got on his bike.
