The result

The 43-year-old sent Yoo to the canvas on multiple occasions and even appeared to have the fight waved off at the end of the fourth round.

Yoo used all the tricks at his disposal in the fight to try and get to the end, claiming to have been punched in the back of the head and dancing around.

In the sixth and final round of the fight, Pacquiao knocked Yoo to the canvas twice, but the the second time to be ruled a slip.

Things looked likely that Pacquiao could’ve easily stopped Yoo inside their six-round charity boxing match if he wanted to, however, it was settled for a unanimous decision win.

“I think Manny was like ‘I really wanted that stoppage’. You could tell it was in his DNA to go out and get the finish,” the commentators said.

“Once a finisher, always a finisher.”

What Pacquiao said after the victory

Pacquiao’s last appearance in an official fight was in August 2021 when he took a stunning decision loss to Cuba’s Yordenis Ugas.

As it has been after the victory against DK Yoo, he seems to be very eager for another comeback as he hinted about it next year.

“You’ll see,” Pacquiao said when asked about fighting in 2023 during his post-interview in the ring after beating Yoo.

“This is a great opportunity to come back in the ring,” he added. “I thought it was easy to retire… I really missed boxing.”
