What a horrible decision.

I'm glad I didn't pay for it.

I really like the audacity of it. Forget our backs, the judges pissed on eveybodies face and didn't even bother telling us it was raining.

I thought Bradley deserved 10 and 12...

I would bet that maybe 25% of legit boxing people could make that argument, then you still need to account for 3 more rounds

Obviously, and I didn't see those.

But I saw alot of people giving him 1. And I definitely think Pac slowed down big time at the end. I just didn't see the 12 rounds of dominance some of you guys are talking about.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

even Bradley didn't think he won it by his body language in the post fight interview

even 115-113 for manny would of been kind of ridiculous

what the hell is going on

Maybe the judges were given a butterfly ballot and voted the wrong way

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

this basically forces Manny into fighting Mayweather for $10m less

either that or it's just a straight buyout from some gambling interest

can't think of another angle

#future30for30 RT @haralabob: Late money on this boxing match, Pac was -432 at 2pm it closed -397 at pinny. Lots of late money on Bradley.
Like everyone else, I had it 11-1 Pac

I could see the last three rounds going to Bradley, even though he didn't really do anything. But pac clearly dominated the first 9 rounds.

Bradley should have won 4 rounds tops, and that's being generous.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

floyd's the one arum will need to do business with once floyd hangs em up, not manny. how much was floyd's cut for the cotto fight? 32 mill pre ppv, over 50 mill after. floyd will be huge in boxing after he retires as promoter. meanwhile, manny will go back to philippines and not contribute at all to american boxing coffers. so arum needs to keep floyd perceived on top so his brand remains at a height all the way until he retires. a fight with pacman, especially at this stage now that floyd has slown down, will screw up this business plan.

just like floyd said after the cotto fight: "the fight with pacquiao will never happen."

Manny acted with utter class, congratulated Bradley. Then said he is sure he won the fight... When asked about a rematch he simply siad, "no problem, in November".
