On November 6, 2016 (Sunday), Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao made another history as he set a new record as the new welterweight champion. Manny is also the first senator in the Philippines to win a world boxing championship.

Judges scored unanimous decision (114-113, 118-109, and 118-109) all for Pacquiao which added to his record: 59 wins with six losses and two draws. It was his third WBO Welterweight title.

On the other hand, it was only the second loss of Vargas against his 27 victories.
