It took two years, but Phillipines-born boxer Manny Pacquiao got  revenge against the man who beat him in a controversial decision.

The 35-year-old southpaw showed he still has the ingredients to win: conditioning, power and speed enroute to a unanimous 12-round decision against the quick-hitting Timothy Bradley.

Two judges scored the fight 116-112 and the third at 118-110.

The 30-year-old Bradley, who is from Cathedral City, California, told the media after the bout that he did not have anything left in the tank after injuring his right calf in the first round.

Bradley is now 31-1.

Pacquiao, who improves his record to a phenomenal 56-5-2, has now held nine world championships after winning on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

When a boxer has trouble with counterpunches, one wonders if he can win a match or even survive for long as a boxer.

Well, Manny Pacquiao is the boxer that we’re referring too and he is able to survive, fight-after-fight-after-fight.

Pacquiao escaped with a win over the weekend against Juan Manuel Marquez.

Marquez, his entourage and fans were upset as Pacquiao walked away with the decision from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

Phillipines-born Manny Pacquiqo, who’ll go down as one of the best boxers of all-time, became the first boxer to win championships in eight divisions, as he handily defeated Antonio Margarito, over the weekend in Arlington, Texas.

He is the first boxer to win ten world titles in eight (octuple) different weight divisions. Furthermore, he is the first boxer to win the lineal championship in four different weight classes.

The 31-year-old southpaw won the fight in the 150-pound class.

His performance was outstanding, because Margarito outweighed him by almost 20 pounds and towered over him at 5’11 to 5’6 1/2.
