Roach: Pacquiao, With Two Hands, Does Much Better With Floyd

By Miguel Rivera

WBA "regular" welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao showed flashes of his past brilliance as he delivered a dominant performance to earn a unanimous decision victory over Adrien Broner in Las Vegas on Saturday.

The 40-year-old Filipino multiple world champion was quicker and more accurate as he controlled each round and cruised to the triumph to take his career record to 61-7-2.

Former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather attended the fight at the MGM Grand, fuelling speculation of a rematch against Pacquiao, who the undefeated boxer beat in 2015.

Two judges scored the bout 116-112 in favour of Pacquiao, while the third had the Filipino Senator a 117-111 winner.

Pacquiao is enjoying a career turnaround after uninspiring efforts that left many believing his career was nearing an end.

“I don’t believe my career is over,” Pacquiao said. “I proved it in my last fight against (Lucas Matthysse) and now proved it again. The Manny Pacquiao journey still continues.”

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.

Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, wants the rematch to happen.

He believes Pacquiao was hindered by an injured right should in the first contest.

"We would really like to get the rematch because we believe that we could have did a much better job and a much better fight than we did the first time with the hurt shoulder," Roach told ESPN Deportes.

"If he wants to come to the table, okay. But if not, there are a lot of good fighters at 147...Errol Spence, Mikey Garcia, a lot of good fighters for Manny Pacquiao.

"He wants to fight Mayweather because we're a little bit embarrassed about the first one. I know that we can do a much better fight with two hands. The thing is, we want to be the first ones to give him a loss. There must be a reason that he came back last month and beat that little kid up."
