The shocking statistics behind Adrien Broner’s loss to Manny Pacquiao
Manny Pacquiao cruised to a 12-round decision win over Adrien Broner Saturday night in Las Vegas, shutting down Broner’s offense over 12 rounds.
Broner landed just 50 punches all fight, his career low for a 12 round fight. Broner landed in single digits in every round.
Manny upped his body & jab attack vs. Broner, as 42% of his landed punches were body shots after landing 20.2% in his previous 5 fights.
Manny averaged 30.9 jabs thrown per round vs. Broner after averaging 17.9 in his previous 5 fights.
WBN Note: The statistics completely back up the fact Pacquiao was a dominant force at 40 years old. Broner’s post-fight claim he won the fight was one hundred percent unfounded and labelled ‘delusional’ on social media.
It could be a tough road back for Broner, who has struggled at welterweight and may need to consider a return to 140 pounds. Provided he can still make the weight.
