Filipino’s pride Manny “pacman” Pacquiao retains his World Boxing Organization welterweight title as he vanquished Joshua Clottey via unanimous decision, Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium, Texas.

In front of 50,994 crowd at the stadium and millions of fans who watch through pay-per-views, television coverages and online streaming, Pacquiao proves his worth as pound-for-pound King and one of the  world’s finest boxer with most numbers of world title.

Clottey is bigger and has a strong and incredible defense mechanism, but it never stops Pacquiao to dominate the 12 rounds, outpunch him and landed  246 of 1,231 punches compare to Clottey’s 108 of 399.

Clottey simply kept his guard high and rarely threw punches and never opened up and fought aggressively. Pacquiao took advantage by using his blazing hand speed to rip through Clottey’s gloves and land hard, punishing shots.

It was another virtuoso performance for the Filipino superstar who has won titles or has claimed the linear championship in seven different weight classes. Pacquiao punished Clottey with combinations to the body throughout in winning the unanimous decision

Pacquiao is on a collision course with unbeaten rival Floyd Mayweather Jr., who fights Shane Mosley on May 1.
