Fans and analysts are shocked following Manny Pacquiao vs Bradley fight (video). They are unanimous that Pacman was robbed. Here is full fight review
Manny Pacquiao has been robbed of his belt by errant judges who for unknown reasons gave his well deserved belt to Timothy Bradley who remained at the receiving end of Manny’s powerful punches throughout the fight. But the gracious boxer has once again given a lesson to his detractors by his graceful acceptance of the decision and even congratulating Bradley for his win.
Though when asked, the best pound for pound boxer in the world said that he was the clear winner of the fight, but his restrained demeanor didn’t show to the world as to what was in his mind. From his outlook, behavior and his style he doesn’t really look like a conventional boxer who wear their temperament on their faces.
Boxing fans were shocked, so were sport analysts and critics who saw a great boxer being robbed of his title by incompetent judges who, many said seems to be watching some other fight to have given this decision.
Bradley was given hardly three rounds by most critics. Some very generous observers gave him five rounds. But if a fighter wins five rounds out of twelve how he can be pronounced a winner. Bob Arum was aghast with the decision and went on to say, “Something like this is so outlandish, it’s a death knell for the sport. This is [expletive] nuts. I have both guys, and I’ll make a lot of money in the rematch, but it’s ridiculous. You have these old [expletive] who don’t know what the [expletive] they’re looking at. It’s incompetence. Nobody who knows anything about boxing could have Bradley ahead in the fight.”
Fans too are very agitated. A fan has this to say, “For Duane Ford (one of the three judges) to suggest that ring generalship, retreating aggressiveness, and body shots is enough to take a fighters belt is a slap in the face to every hard fought battlefield warrior in the game that put it all on the line in the ring and the title holder retained by the belt.”.
Another reader has this to say, “BOYCOTT boxing until this epic judging failure is resolved. I’m a regular American boxing lover and supporter, but will NEVER support Pay Per View, HBO or Showtime until this is addressed. Biggest judging error in boxing history…! I suggest the whole world BOYCOTT boxing until these judges are disbarred and Manny is given this belt back. He easily beat Bradley by 9 or more rounds….!”
