Pacquiao shows age, unable to land KO
LAS VEGAS – The old Manny Pacquiao returned for thrilling bursts, hounding Timothy Bradley onto the ropes and battering the welterweight champion with whip-quick combinations that recalled the Pacman’s magical prime.
The older Pacquiao couldn’t finish the trick, however.
Although he tried mightily, Pacquiao, 35, didn’t stop or even really hurt Bradley during 12 mostly exciting rounds Saturday night, settling for the lucrative revenge of a unanimous-decision victory.
I didn’t want to get careless, said Pacquiao (56-5-2), who hasn’t had a knockout since 2009.
