Thumbs down Pacquiao VS Bradley

I don't know if any of you watch boxing, but it died tonight after this match. I've never seen anything more rigged

Judges are the main reason why boxing is a dying sport. Manny won EVERY round except MAYBE two.

Boxing is a dead sport. Even Manny can't save it. A horrible decision.

I'd just like to say that clearly Pacquiao was cheated last night. Out of 12 rounds of boxing, he won at least 8; nough' said...

But, he was a gentlemen during the in the ring interview.

Default Everyone knows PacMan won except the judges.

Not only did Pacquiao soundly win at least 9 rounds he also rocked Bradley with decent shots. Bradley did nothing to equal to that. Nothing.

What a way to treat Pacquiao who has acomplished so much.

Bradley may hold the belts but he hasn't earned them. Bradley hasn't fought the caliber of fighters Pacquiao has. Bradley knows in his heart he was beat.

It states; "Every punch counts." ...apparently, not last night.

It's such a shame that Pacquaio was cheated this badly. Seriously, I don't think I have ever seen anything like this. He is the main draw for the sport and they are going to treat him like this and cheat him out of his title? That's pathetic.

Everyone thought Pacquaio won. ESPN Sportscenter was complaining big time about the judges and the sport of boxing in general. That said that Pacquaio won every single round except for one round. Even Bradley himself was amazed with the decision. That in itself should tell you something.

So, who's going to be watching the rematch?

Not me, if this is the way Boxing is going again (ie: Don King era was bad for the sport) then I'll stop watching for good.

It wasn't Bradley's fault, however, I (and many others) would totally respect him if he handed Manny the belts back. This would send a strong statement to the judges and the organizers of high profile fights like this.

Yup, still upset about the outcome.

Judging by his reaction, the "pacman" might have known beforehand. Maybe everyone involved knew.

IMO, everyone was in on it, sometimes when you take a lost you win big. 26 million to the Pacman. I doubt he is worried. People don't want to admit it but as I get older I see how corrupt the sport business really is.

For me no amount of money could allow me to have a 'lost' tied to my name. And if that was the case, why didn't he fight badly?

Agree, PacMan wasn't in on it. The money argument is a dumb one since he was getting paid either way and it hurts his market value in the long run.
In no way does losing every help you make money. Especially when you're the 2nd highest money grossing boxer out right now.

I am not a boxing analyst but I do think that anyone who has a common sense wouldn't judge bradley as the winner. A great boxer he is but conspiracy, misjudgment are his greatest enemies.
