Wearing yellow gloves symbolizing a fight against poverty, Manny “the Pacman” Pacquiao successfully defended his WBO Welterweight Championship belt against Shane Mosley.  The score was unanimous, 119-108, 120-108 and 120-107.

This was Pacquiao’s seventh win.

The fight was largely one sided, in favor of Pacquiao.

Pacquiao is set to take home 20 million dollars from the fight.  Mosley will bring home 6 million.

Mosley indicated that he may retire.

Entering the match, Pacquiao was favored to win.

President Aquino issued a statement after Manny Pacquiao won:

Sa kaniyang pagdepensa sa WBO world welterweight belt, hindi lamang ang likas na tatag, lakas at tapang ng mga Pinoy ang muling ibinandila ng ating Pambansang kamao sa buong mundo. Bagkus, ipinamalas din niya ang disiplina, determinasyon at tunay na galing ng mga Pilipino.

Higit pa itong pinatingkad nang pinili niyang magsuot ng dilaw na boxing gloves, na sumasagisag sa pakikiisa ni Manny sa ating laban kontra kahirapan. Sa kabila ng kaniyang tagumpay, hindi kinakalimutan ni Manny na lumingon at ibangon ang mga kababayan niyang pinabagsak ng mga suliranin. Mulat siyang may mga laban na hindi natatapos sa loob ng ring— na may obligasyon siya para sa Inang bayan, kung saan malasakit at mahusay na serbisyo sa kapwa ang pangunahin niyang sandata.
