Manny Pacquiao put a two-year victory drought to bed by securing a convincing win via unanimous decision over Brandon Rios on Saturday night.
In his first fight since last December, a refreshed Pacquiao went to work in Macau, China. With a returned kick to his step, he seized control from the opening round and did not ease up until the final bell.
Although the final decision was left to the judges, there was no way they could botch this outcome. It was clear to everyone that Pacquiao would once again have his hand raised in triumph after exhibiting a clinic over Rios to win the vacant WBO international welterweight title. The lopsided final scorecards backed that up.
Rios took a beating through 12 rounds, but the aggressive opponent kept coming back for more. As a result, Pacquiao landed more than twice as many punches.
Let's take a closer look at each of the 12 rounds that led to Pacquiao shaking off his two-fight losing streak.
