Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner both made the welterweight limit as they weighed in for their showdown at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Two judges scored the bout 116-112 in favour of Pacquiao, while the third had the Filipino Senator a 117-111 victor.

"I'm willing to fight again (against) Floyd Mayweather", Pacquiao stressed. The Filipino mega star used a superb right jab to set up his lethal straight left throughout the bout and he dug to Broner's body repeatedly in every round. Immediately Jack stopped, but once more, after another timeout, it was agreed he could continue.

"I wanted to push even more but y trainers told me to be careful", said Pacquiao, who boosted his win-loss-draw mark to 61-7-2 with 39 KOs.

"Everybody out there knew I beat him".

Pacquiao, whose pro career stretches back 24 years, showed he still has the speed that carried him over his spectacular career.

The final few rounds were anticlimactic as Broner played it safe and Pacquiao stayed in control. Considering it's a four fight card, Pacquiao vs. Broner will probably begin around 11:15-11:45 p.m. ET.

The fight takes place on Saturday, January 19 with fans in the United Kingdom having to wait up until the early hours of Sunday morning to watch the action.

"I'm so happy", said Pacquiao.

Showtime announcer Jim Gray tried to get Mayweather to climb in the ring after the fight and discuss a possible bout with Pacquiao, but Mayweather demurred. Pacquiao returns to defend his WBA title in his first fight on USA soil in more than two years against must-see attraction Adrien Broner - live Saturday, January 19 at 9PM ET/6PM PT on SHOWTIME PPV. Broner threw only 295 punches and landed just 50.
