Broner was also more accurate with his power punches, landing 46.6% (11.5 per round) to 37.7% for Pacquiao (8.3 per round).

Body punching isn’t a huge part of either fighter’s arsenal, as only 20.1% of Pacquiao’s landed punches are body shots, and 24.5% of Broner’s are body shots. CompuBox avg.: 25.5%.
