The Queensbury Rules:
These are the results for the four main undercard fights to support the main event of Manny Pacquiao Vs. Brandon Rios:
Puerto Rico's Felix Verdejo outlcassed an incredibly game opponent in Petchsamuthr Duanaaymukdahan, winning a shutout decision. Duanaaymukdahan made a whole lot of friends in the crowd along the way, though, boring in with his head down, clowning, banging his gloves together and even doing an Ali shuffle. It was all in vain, because Verdejo was completely unfazed by his rather predictable assault. He pumped a consistent jab that had Duanaaymukdahan's face a mess from the 1st round, and worked a variety of combinations. Verdejo, who moved to 9-0, 7 KO, landed a hellacious right uppercut in the 5th that would have dropped a lesser man, but Duanaaymukdahan plowed one regardless. The Thai, who moved to 8-2, 1 KO was docked a point in the 6th for low blows, which by that point was rather academic. Verdejo got the nod 60-53 across the board.
