(MENAFN - Arab News) Filipinos in the kingdom are euphoric over "pambansang kamao" manny pacquiao's rousing victory over erstwhile reigning wbo welterweight titleholder timothy bradley in las vegas nevada on saturday (sunday morning in saudi arabia)

They are one in saying that the victory of pacquiao 35 is reason enough to celebrate as if it's a national holiday and forget that bradley 29 wrested the welterweight crown in june 2012 in a fight which they believe the filipino boxing icon won

"we are happy indeed over pacquiao's victory. news about his every fight are read by us and when he wins we rejoice as if we are the winners ourselves" said bhernie narceda a community leader in buraidah qassim

In the saudi capital many filipinos watched the fight which lasted 12 rounds with pacquiao winning by a unanimous decision.

"i usually leave the house early in the morning to go to the office but i watched the fight enjoying every minute of it with manny pacquiao delivering more accurate punches than bradley" said eric p. asi an engineer at nardeen lighting

The fighting congressman led bradley in the power punch department with 148 of his 344 power blows finding their target for a 43 percent rate. bradley landed only 109 of his 340 power punches

Pacquiao won two scorecards by 116-112 margins and the third by a 118-110 score. cbssports.com agreed with the scoring giving it to pacquiao as well 115-113

Florante m. catanus finance officer at audhali law firm in alkhobar said "we're very happy indeed that pacquiao won. he used his head and very calculating during the fight. he was less aggressive compared to his earlier years of being in the ring. however he was very effective with his punches to bradley's body and face."

In jeddah jhay r. olanca a nurse at the soliman fakeeh hospital said " manny had a great fight showing his being a veteran in the ring. he was focused and unruffled by the distraction of bradley's antics to psyche him up.

However he added "bradley was strong and could take the punishing punches of the philippine boxing pride."
