Just days after Filipino legend Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao (56-5-3, 38) reclaimed the WBO Welterweight title with a decision victory over American Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley (31-1-0-1, 12) he was rewarded with the honour of "Champion of the Month" by the WBO.
The 35 year old Filipino rolled back the clock to put in a dominating display over Bradley and avenge a defeat he had suffered in 2012.
Notably Pacquiao was one of just 2 new champions for the WBO this month with the other being the newly crowned Minimumweight champion Francisco Rodriguez Jr, who coincidentally beat a Filipino, Merlito Sabillo, for that title.
