Tonight is Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley III in what may or may not be the final fight in the Hall of Fame career of Pacquiao.

Round 6: The pace is high here with a lot of movement, but there's very little actual punching going on in this round. Lots of feints from both men lead to a low output round, and, like the first, a tough round to score. Bradley lands a few more shots, so that should give it to him, but it's very close. 10-9 Bradley

Round 7: Close round until the final 30 seconds, at which point a tight inside hook from Pacquiao catches Bradley, he stumbles, his glove touches the mat, and that's a knockdown. 10-8 Pac

Round 8: Pacquiao comes out moving quickly and confidently, controlling the action at first. But in the last minutes, Bradley lands some shots that hurt Pacquiao and send him into the ropes. Bradley follows up with a great rally and Pacquiao is hurt against the ropes. He clinches to slow things down, but he was hurt there. Probably Bradley's best round in all 3 fights. 10-9 Bradley

Round 9: Bradley comes out aggressive and determined, initiating big exchanges which he is winning. It looks like he's on his way to a win in the round, when Pacquiao lands a counter left that wobbles Bradley, sees he's hurt, then follows up with a hard left that puts him down. Bradley gets off the canvas, but does not seem to be back in it. 10-8 Pac

87-82 Pac after 9
