As expected, eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao defeated Jessie Vargas this past Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nev.
Inside of the Thomas & Mack Center, Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KO’s) was sharp, strong, and efficient throughout the fight, while Vargas, (27-2, 10 KO’s) lost no stock at all in defeat, showing true grit and determination in the face of his more experienced foe.
Pacquiao, 37, picks up the WBO welterweight title for a third time with the win and speculation about a rematch with Floyd Mayweather has begun. Check below for a closer look at the action.
