pacquiao was the aggressor landing the majority of the blows, bradley was hitting pacquiaos gloves all night long.
in the pre-fight analysis, emmanuel steward and jim lampley were questioning the decision of these judges, suggesting that they should have flown
in out of state judges. (read between the lines, 2 well respected boxing experts and insiders were basically saying that they are known crooks
without actually saying it.)
bradley and pacquiao belong to the same stable, arum's top rank boxing.
bradley is an up and coming champion, young and undefeated and the future of top rank, pacquiao is at the end of his career.
cynics might suggest that if pacquiao defeated bradley, he'd be damaged goods and a poor ppv draw costing arum 10's of millions of dollars in
potential earnings in the future.
bradley himself said he'll like to watch the tape again and see if he won. huge red flag. you were in the ring, you should know if you won.
the first thing out of his bradley's mouth was a nov. 10th rematch. wtf?
all ring side announcers and almost all boxing experts had pacquiao winning on their card.
if pacquiao defeated bradley, he'd have no choice but to fight mayweather. since mayweather is in prison and won't have enough time to train to
fight pac this year, pac would have to be inactive for more than 8 months, thus costing arum one more chance to milk the cash cow before the fight
of the century and pacs eventual retirement.
vegas moneyline had pac as a -450 favorite and bradley as the dog at 360. someone made off like a bandit.
arum is a snake and a disgrace to boxing and sports in general. but that also includes all boxing promoters and especially the nevada state athletic
this fight is a symptom of whats wrong in america in general. blatant fraud and corruption on such a large scale that they don't even try to mask
it any more. america is at a point of indifference and complacency, which is extremely dangerous.
