Based on tonight's decision, should probably just move it to French BBV.

Bradley: "I'll have to look at the tape to see if I won." Says it all, really.

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

I liked how Bradley said he would have to watch the tape to see if he won or not. I've never heard a winer say that. He knows he lost..

Did they just forget to play it close in the ring? Bradley already had Nov 10 booked, and the pre fight hijinx with Manny just reek of rigged.

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

What did you expect Bradley to do after the fight? Give the belt back to Manny? He instantly offered the rematch, and I thought he handled it well.

If he says smth like "manny won the fight" it makes the sport look ever worse, right?

Bradley handled it as well as he could, but he admitted what everyone already knew.

No boxer in history has ever said "I'll have to rewatch the tape and see if I won the fight", it's as close to "I'm sorry, this fight was fixed" as we'll get.

He handled it fine, nobody has a problem with it, people are just saying his body language at least showed he knows he lost.

Is that one of the judges, in your Avatar, marking the score sheet for the fight?

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

If you listened to HBO broadcast, 0% you think bradley was competitive.

But there were about 5 rounds that could've gone either way imo, and I had a feeling at least 1 judge would give pacquiao winning by 116-112 or 115-113. But there's NO WAY you could give bradley 7 rounds

It's boxing, the WBO (the authority issuing this title) and the Nevada Boxing Commission can do damn near whatever they want.

Unless they have hard evidence that the fight was rigged, then no, it won't be overturned.

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

The most significant blows Bradley landed were in the 1st round. It was a couple of body blows. Manny did more damage and still won the round. I'm not sure if Bradley landed a solid head shot the entire fight.

Giving Bradley 3 rounds is generous. 7 is a fix.

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

Lol bob arum's wiki is already updated. Under controversies: " It is believed that in the 2012 Pacquio-Bradley fight that Arum fixed the end results leading to a split decision victory for Bradley. The rumors and speculation being that with Pacquio's contract coming to an end, Arum needed to propel his other younger fighter Bradley to continue to bringing in money after Pacquio leaves.

"I'm going to make a lot of money on the rematch, but this was outrageous," Arum said.

I hate you
