Bob Arum and Top Rank's dalliance with worldwide expansion became official Saturday night (or Sunday morning). They staged a memorable boxing card in Macau, China, headlined by perhaps the sport's most renowned figure, Manny Pacquiao.
The buildup was heavy, filled to the brim with drama—from one man's fight for those affected by tragedy in the Philippines, to oddities and smut that included rival camps hurling racial slurs and profanity, to a man with Parkinson's disease being kicked in the chest.
It all led to a showdown between Pacquiao and the exhilarating Brandon Rios. "Pac-Man" proved to be the superior fighter, earning a unanimous decision victory after 12 rounds of meticulous violence. But that wasn't the only fight on this occasion.
And you can reflect back on this night of fights through the wonderful art of photography, where moments are frozen from time, altering reality by holding it still.
