Manny wins by unanimous Decision
Another glorious day for the Filipino people all over the world. We saw a much better Manny as he fought to win a unanimous points victory in his fight with Timothy Bradly, and regained the WBO welterweight title in Las Vegas, Sunday 13 April 2014.
Manny won 116-112, 116-112 and 118-110

When asked in the post-fight interview if ‘he still got the zeal, the fire hunger to be the best he can possibly be, and what he has proven tonight’ (with his victory especially) ‘at the age of thirty five with another full time job’.
Manny answered: (what I’ve) ‘proven tonight was that my journey in boxing will continue’.
He went on to say that his opponent was not easy ‘he was tough, and thanked God for his victory.
As always Filipinos in the Philippines and all over the whole converged, all eyes glued on the screen as each boxer exchanged punches.
After the fight Manny Paquiao’s mother, more popularly known as Mommy D, donned in a Filipiniana Terno went up the ring to hug and congratulate her son.
Congratulations again to the Pambansang Kamao, and thank you for making us proud to be a Filipino!
