So much for Manny Pacquiao being distracted by political aspirations or looking past undefeated but unheralded Jorge Solis (32-1-2). Pacquiao (44-3-2) took a few rounds to figure out his taller opponent but immediately went into attack mode after suffering a cut over his left eye from an accidental headbutt in round six. Pacquiao pounded Solis for the remainder of the sixth and the entire seventh round before finally dropping him with a short left-right combination in the eighth. Solis beat the count but soon found himself back on the canvas from a series of unanswered Pacquiao punches. Solis was clearly hurt but made it to his feet as referee Vic Drakulich reached the count of ten and waved off the fight. Solis, who did not seem interested in absorbing any further punishment, did not protest.
