The Manny Pacquiao that captivated the boxing world seemed back heading into the eighth round of his bout with Brandon Rios.
Rios had another one of his moments in the clinch where he had an arm free to bang to the head and body. But then it was simply back to the Pacquiao dominance even as Rios landed a left hook and a jab.
But Pacquiao's hand speed and movement are the story of the fight, he is simply far, far too fast for Rios to catch up to.
Round: 10-9 Pacquiao
Fight: 80-72 Pacquiao
