Manny Pacquiao was defeated despite statistics showing he out-punched his opponent
Manny Pacquiao vowed to take revenge in a rematch after his controversial and shock defeat to Timothy Bradley.
It was his first defeat in seven years and ends any hope of facing Floyd Mayweather Jr this year in a bout to decide boxing’s best pound-for-pound fighter. Instead he will face Bradley again on November 10.
But statistics showed Pacquiao, 33, out-punched Bradley, 28, and the Filipino claims he was never punished by his American challenger.
