Manny Pacquiao regained the WBO Welterweight Championship on Saturday night in Las Vegas, capturing a unanimous decision over the previously unbeaten Timothy Bradley Jr. at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.

Pacquiao (56-5-2 38 KO) avenged a hotly disputed loss to Bradley in their first fight, nearly two years ago, taking over in the second half to capture a comfortable points victory.

Scores were 116-112, 116-112 and 118-110 for Pacquiao.

Bleacher Report scored the contest 116-112 for Pacquiao.

Bradley (31-1, 12 KO) promised that he would knock out the Filipino icon, and he came out swinging for the fences. He buzzed Pacquiao a couple of times early in the fight, but seemed to punch himself out a bit, fading badly over the second half of the fight.

That was when Pacquiao took over, showing flashes of the killer instinct his foe said he no longer had, closing the show, regaining his belt and leaving zero doubt.
