Pacquiao Beats Vargas: The New WBO Welterweight Champion of the World

Sunday, November 06, 2016

Pacquiao wins a unanimous decision by scores of 114-113, 118-109 and 118-109.

Manny Pacquiao has reclaimed the WBO welterweight title for the third time, defeating the younger WBO champ Jessie Vargas on points.

In front of the watching Floyd Mayweather at ringside, Pacquiao got stronger as the fight went on before claiming the decision from the full panel of ringside judges.

Mayweather's presence will spark further talk of a rematch between the two, who went head-to-head in 2015 in a fight which brought in nearly £500m in pay-per-view money.
