Manny Pacquiao out boxed Timothy Bradley for 10 of their 12-round encounter but lost a split decision, thanks to two of the three judges that worked the fight here Saturday at the MGM Grand Arena. Bradley scored the upset of the year when he defeated Pacquiao via split decision, 113-115, 115-113, and 115-113 in their World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight clash. The decision was booed lustily by the crowd when announced by ring announcer Michael Buffer.Fight statistics showed Pacquiuao overwhelmed the challenger in all departments connecting 253 punches of the 751 he threw for 34 percent as against Bradley’s 159-of-839 of a measly 19 percent.

Bradley threw 449 jabs as compared Pacquiao’s 258, but the Filipino connected 63 times for an average 24 percent accuracy. The American landed only 51 for a very poor 11 percent. As for the power punches thrown, Pacquiao swung his. As a result, the 33-year-old eight-division champion lost his World Boxing Organization welterweight title, while suffering his only fourth loss in 60 fights in his 16-year career. The 28-year-old Bradley, who extended his unbeaten run to 29, 12 of them by knockouts, thus, crowned the new WBO 147-pound belt-owner.
