Retired boxing star Manny Pacquiao won against Korean martial artist DK Yoo in an exhibition match in South Korea. Although Yoo was taller than Pacquiao, the latter landed right hooks and left straights through the six rounds.
The South Korean took enough damage to the head and body to fall to the ground on many occasions, but it was declared a slip each time he did.
By the fourth round, Yoo also showed signs of fatigue, despite the fact that his occasional showboating kept the crowd on its feet.
Based on software sportsbook reports, Pacquiao won by unanimous decision.
