Pacquiao “Surprised” By Broner’s Lack Of Offense

While Adrien Broner screamed conspiracy on Saturday night, Manny Pacquiao was confused, not by Broner’s claims that he was robbed, but by his opponent’s lack of offense.

Pacquiao credited his aggressiveness was what worked for him in taking the unanimous decision over Broner, but the Ohio native’s lack of punching created an issue.

“We’re both counter-punchers,” Pacquiao told reporters at the post-fight press conference. Our strategy for this fight is to counter-punch. So, I was surprised he didn’t throw a lot of punches [at] me. He was waiting for me. I needed to throw a lot of punches. Our strategy for this fight is to counter. That’s what we did [in training camp]. But since that’s his style, also, we made adjustments with [co-trainer] Buboy [Fernandez].”

“Like I said over and over again, Adrien Broner is a good boxer. He’s fast, he moves fast, he’s a former champion. He’s the kind of fighter you cannot underestimate. You cannot take him lightly. I told you, he was giving me a hard time for this fight. So, I respect his style and team for giving a good fight tonight.”
