Will the seasoned veteran, who enters the fight with a 60-7-2 record, be able to knockout Broner (33-3-1), or will Adrien score the upset victory? ESPN.com had it a shutout for Pacquiao, 120-108.

"Although I wanted to be aggressive more, my camp told me don't be careless and to counter him and wait for opportunities".

The champion had a massive seventh round as he landed a couple of left hands that stunned Broner. Pacquiao is at -280, up from -250 when the fight was first announced in November of previous year. "The Manny Pacquiao journey still continues". Y'all know I beat that boy.

The trash-talking American challenger though doesn't have the skills of Mayweather or the timing of Marquez to catch Pacquiao on the way in, so no advantage, training consultant Freddie Roach said. "They are trying to get that money with Pacquiao and Floyd".

Mayweather, whose last outing was a farce of an exhibition bout against a Japanese kickboxer, refused the entreaties of a ringside TV reporter to indicate whether he would be willing to fight Pacquiao again. I think Manny is edging Adrien in a chess match.

Pacquiao was clearly the favourite of the crowd of 13,025, who gathered at the MGM Grand arena to see if the part-time fighter still had some fight in him.

Pacquaio said after the win: 'I feel so happy because I did my best in the fight and in training. Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, said during the post-fight press conference that Mayweather won't end a third retirement to oppose Pacquiao again. Pacquiao later connected with a three-punch combination that forced Broner to the ropes. It was the biggest fight of his career and he all but failed to show up.

"I beat him", Broner said with a straight face. It was one of the most laughable lines of the night, given his paucity of punches.

This means Paquiao and Broner are tipped to make their ring walks around 4am but this could be closer to 5am if other fights go the distance.
