The trilogy of the Pacquiao-Bradley has been concluded with a unanimous decision in favor of the Filipino boxing champ. Fans were not disappointed by the outcome of each round, because the boxers really exerted all their energy and power to get the WBO belt. There were instances that Timothy Bradley landed some counter punches to Manny Pacquiao, but there were rounds (7 and 9) that the Desert Storm were knocked down. The judges decided to give 116-110 unanimous decision in favor of the “Pambansang Kamao.”
The fight is allegedly the final career match for Pacquiao because he decided to retire. It was actually a double celebration for him because he ended his legacy with a victory and made marks to the history with his 8 boxing division win. Many were shocked by his decision, but Pacman explained the reason. In an interview, he mentioned two main reasons, first is his longing to help the Filipino people and second is his yearning to spend more time with his family.
Below is a screen shot showing his full statement:
Personally, I think it’s high time for him to consider the things which money can’t buy. He already reached the peak of success and already proved his worth in sports. If he chooses to be with his family and serve his constituents, let’s give it to him. Everyone deserves to achieve self-fulfillment. :)
