I don’t follow boxing, but I knew that when the media haZd their hissy over his comments last month that his career was effectively over. Reading the accounts of the fight, he won convincingly, so what did the powers that be do? What they always do...ignore reality and determined the desired outcome.
AKA, they overreached yet again and made everything political. Sure there’s money in the rematch. But that was not the only reason.
There is no question this was fixed. Here’s a picture Bradley posted on his twitter account last month: https://twitter.com/Timbradleyjr/status/207553002964398080/photo/1
Anti-gay remarks backlash, perhaps???
I wish what you are saying was true but the fact is the Nov. 10 rematch, or when it takes place, will make even more money than this fight did. That’s why we got the decision we did.
Boxing has been going down this road for a while now, it’s beginning to make the Olympics look honest.
The commentators were disgusting before the fight and all of their snide remarks on Manny’s religious conversion.
For one, they showed HBO and the “beautiful peoples” utter contempt for God and religion. Secondly, why are they so surprised, Manny has always been a practicing Catholic, the Philippians is 90% Catholic, he simply became more devout.
Anyone whose watched Pac-Man fight from his early days knows he always prayed in the ring at first and after a fight and always wore his rosary.
Bob Arum said he thinks they are just incompetent.
“And Arum, a kingpin in the sport, promotes both boxers.
This is [bleepin] nuts, he continued. I have both guys, and Ill make a lot of money in the rematch, but its ridiculous. You have these old [bleeps] who dont know what the hell theyre looking at. Its incompetence. Nobody who knows anything about boxing could have Bradley ahead in the fight.
According to Arum, the new paper champion didnt even feel he earned it.
When I came into the ring [after the fight], I said to Tim, You did very well, and he said I tried hard and I couldnt beat the guy, Arum said. You talk about killing boxing.
You know who should be smiling this morning?
UFC President Dana White. “

OJ Simpson wishes he got those judges, they obviously would have cleared him on those robbery and kidnapping charges!
