When Showtime's Jim Gray interviewed him in the ring a few minutes after Pacquiao was announced a unanimous-decision victor, Broner oddly argued that he deserved the victory in their 12-round welterweight title fight at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Pacquiao continued to dictate the tempo of the fight with his jabs and combinations, while Broner tried to find his timing, finding little success with his shots.

Two judges favored Pacquiao by a 116-112 score, while the third had it 117-111.

Pacquiao again struck hard in the ninth round with a follow-up left straight that had Broner backing up. "I'm willing to fight again to Floyd Mayweather if he's willing to come back in boxing".
