That was one of the worst decision ever!
Manny won and it wasn’t even close!
heh. We are watching it (delayed) now. All the Philippines will be in mourning.
I can’t even believe the decision was rigged, because it’s SO wrong, it’s too obvious to be a fix.
I would’ve given Bradley four rounds, maximum. But 115-113, that’s 7 rounds for Bradley to 5 for Pacquiao. That’s so far out of the realm of what actually happened as to be laughable.
I suppose Pacquiao got himself into that spot by not finishing Bradley off when he had the chance, and he did, in fairness, look like he was coasting the last few rounds (and Bradley looked to have finally gotten on his game plan). But...he didn’t win that fight. Not even close.
What a hose job.
Couldn’t have been more surprised. Manny won all rounds except maybe #10.
Let this be a warning to people waiting to watch future fights. There are idiots who give the results and spoil it for everyone else. This isn’t the first time it has happened on FR and surely won’t be the last.
I am not an expert in scoring boxing matches. Perhaps I am colored by the commentators who thought it was a dominant win by Pac who landed way more punches. The guest judge scored it 11-1 for Pac, some other guy thought 10-2.
The judges were watching some other fight, I struggle to see how they gave Bradley 5 rounds let alone the 2 judges that gave him 7. Crack cocaine? Fixed?
Wonder how much in gambling debts to vegas hotels those two judges were in to.
I was watching with 10 other peoplr, we all had PacMan the winner.
When the decision was announced, the consensus was “Bullshiite”. One guy said the mafia still owns Vegas (whatever that means). Many of us said it was fixed at the beginning if you listened to all the commentators overtly and covertly putting down Manny’s religious conviction.
Another said it’s because a black man had to win (political)
All in all: Manny should have kept the title.
Manny was honest about the Homosexual Agenda and the Queer judges made Manny pay.
Mo money in a rematch !
all the commentators overtly and covertly putting down Mannys religious conviction.
Gay Agenda is the winner.
Pac-Man won every round with maybe the exception of the 10th
The crooks who rigged this fight just cost themselves Millions of dollars as no one will ever pay to watch to get ripped off again.
Pac-Man won every round except maybe the 10th
What a debacle.
Las Vegas at its best. Boxing has been fixed for all eternity and you could see the real reason for the decision - the rematch. When Max Kellerman interviewed Bradley after the fight and asked if he thought he won, Bradley said he would have to look at the tapes and see if he did win.
The rematch was announced for Nov. 10th, and Pacquiao politely said you have to respect the judges and yes, he accepts the rematch. Who woulda thunk it - this boxing thing and Las Vegas. It’s all about the money!
Even Bradley was shocked he got the decision!!
I heard the commentators giving Manny guff for being “distracted” by religion before the fight and well as being distracted by the NBA game (Manny is a Celtics fan and delayed the fight till the game was over). But even those guys (1 an old Black guy who was harsh in his criticism) had him winning in a near shutout. Bizarre. Boxing can’t afford this kind of nonsense anymore.
I know 10 people who will not pay to watch the rematch.
I was going to say the same thing. I didn't watch the fight live, but figured from the reactions online that almost everyone thought had Pacquiao won the decision. I agree that it seems the judges were paying Pacquiao back for his recent anti-homo and pro-Christian comments. The Gay Mafia strikes again!!!
