Pacquiao vs Rios full fight video highlights from Macao

Check out the highlights from Manny Pacquiao's big win in Macao over Brandon Rios on Saturday night.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Manny Pacquiao handled his business on Saturday night in Macao, dismantling a brave and always-tough Brandon Rios over 12 rounds, winning on wide scores that, in rounds, came to 12-0, 11-1, and 10-2. BLH had a shutout for Pacquiao, 12 rounds to 0, 120-108.

Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KO) is now back in the mix officially, though he was never truly out of it. He showed that he's not hesitant to get in there with a guy who can bang and take a shot, and he boxed terrifically, using his speed and movement as key assets against the slower, plodding Rios (31-2-1, 23 KO), who took some hellacious power punches from Manny but never looked to be in any trouble at all, eating some serious leather over the course of the fight.
