Hopefully, it looks like the Pacman is back. Dominant performance that looked easy, but very nerve-racking each second that Pacquiao could possibly be knocked out cold again. He still showed he's still one of the best today. He still has that speed with the left straight landing all night on Rios. Still one of the hardest punches to stop in the sport. Pacquiao never took a minute off the entire fight. Every time Rios wanted to come foward, he would back off a bit from those combinations that almost landed at will. Manny played it very smart avoiding exchanges with Rios and just used his speed to frustrate him. In the later rounds he could of knocked down Rios but was discplined to ease off and just win on points. Rios barley had clean shots on Manny. The only time Rios can make contact is when they both locked up and the ref didn't break it up much. Rios was just out boxed.

Going forward looks like Pacquiao will be back in US soil come April. Could be a Bradley rematch or a fight with his sparring partner Provodnikov who could be very dangerous.
