With things winding down for Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley in their HBO pay-per-view bout, the two men came out of their corners for the ninth round. Pacquiao quickly landed a hard straight left hand, the punch that had been most effective for him to this point in the bout.
Bradley continued to try to circle and pick his spots to engage with hard flurries but Manny landed a few heavy combination punches. Bradley responded with a hard combination of his own, but then it was all Manny again. Bradley kept throwing and was actually having some success again this round, mixing in a few more left hook leads and a couple uppercuts.
This has turned into a very exciting, high energy fight, but one that the better fighter is just winning.
Round: 10-9 Pacquiao
Fight: 89-82 Pacquiao
