LAS VEGAS – Manny Pacquiao may not be ready for retirement just quite yet.
Pacquiao returned from the biggest loss of his career with a bang Saturday night, knocking down Timothy Bradley twice on his way to a unanimous 12-round decision in their welterweight showdown.
Pacquiao shook off the ring rust from a layoff of nearly a year after losing to Floyd Mayweather Jr. to beat Bradley for a second time in the rubber match between the two fighters. In doing the Senate candidate in his native Philippines showed he may have to reconsider his plans to retire and devote his full time to politics.
Pacquiao knocked Bradley down in the seventh round, though Bradley seemed to have slipped. He left no doubt in the ninth round with a big left hand that sent Bradley sprawling.
