Pacquiao vs. Rios: Manny Pacquiao Proves He's Still the Man in UD

Manny Pacquiao made his long awaited return to the ring Saturday night in China against Brandon Rios. Fans were not sure what they were going to get. Would he return to the form that once had him considered the pound for pound best boxer on the planet? Or would he continue on a downward career trajectory following his loss to Juan Manuel Marquez?

This GIF from the seventh round might give you a hint...
Pac-Man looked like the fighter fans know and love in a dominant performance over Rios showing off his footwork, speed, and combinations--all stuff that fans expect to see from him! The fight did go the distance, but the judges scored it pretty convincingly in favor of Manny:  120-108, 119-109, 118-110.

It's great to see a person that tries to do so much good with his celebrity begin to climb his way back on top. Now if only Floyd Mayweather would sack up and fight him.
