Round 1- Velazquez is clearly confident and has himself a good opening round. He takes the fight to Pacquiao, counters his offense well and gets in several eye-catching right hands to the head. Velazquez is also taunting Pacquiao frequently, even shounting to him at one point and staring at him defiantly after the bell.

Round 2- The two fighters are content to trade power shots nonstop. Pacquiao lands plenty flush left hands in the round, which Velazquez shrugs off each time, but Velazquez gets in several rights over the top as well. Close round, with the jab in between from Pacquiao getting him a slight edge.

Round 3- The looping right of Velazquez is still finding Pacquaio, but the southpaw jab is clearly disturbing his rhythm. As one can expect, Pacquiao is hitting home with the left hand often, and he is using goof footwork to get out of the way after. Though Velazquez is still taking them well, this does not make the round any closer in his favor.

Round 4- Pacquiao is consistently beating Velazquez to the punch, landing the right hook with ease and peppering him with lefts. This round is also a pretty good defensive showing by Pacquiao, who rolls beneath a combination early and turns his head with the punches. Velazquez is no longer showing the confidence he had in the first two rounds.

Round 5- Velazquez is effectively plodding forward, and Pacquiao is able to run him into 2-3 punch combinations with ease. The lead right hook of Pacquiao has been particularly effective in this round.

Round 6- Like the past few rounds, Pacquiao continues to have target practice, landing power punches with ease. A perfectly-timed right hook has Velazquez hurt, so Pacquiao goes for the kill. Velazquez desperately holds after absorbing a number of left hands and right hooks. Pacquiao then continue to follow up, and a row of ones and twos cause Velazquez to take a knee. When he rises, the referee decides he is not fit to continue. Good fight, and dominant performance by Pacquiao, who certainly handled business despite Erik Morales dropping a shocking decision to Zahir Raheem. Even with that occuring, Pacquiao would go on to get revenge in the next fight of both him and Morales.
