Funnily enough, it turns out Adrien Broner might have landed the most significant punch in his fight with Manny Pacquiao last Saturday. “Pac-Man,” who walked away with a wide unanimous decision victory, reportedly suffered a scratched cornea from a grazing blow during the bout. Though his camp initially feared it could be a detached retina, Pacquiao spokesman Fred Sternburg tells Lance Pugmire that he’s “fine.”
It’s also not the first time a glove catching an eye wrong has caused issues. UFC legend Randy Couture famously lost his rematch with Vitor Belfort in under a minute due to taking a seam to the peeper.
Pacquiao, for his part, is in attendance for the L.A. Lakers’ game against the Golden State Warriors tonight, as is Floyd Mayweather. I can’t wait for the Kiss Cam.
