****ing Duane Ford. They're talking like he's the best judge in boxing. He's the same guy that screwed B.Hop in the Taylor fight, giving Taylor the 12th round when Hopkins schooled him. He's always been crooked, I don't know why these guys were on his nuts in the first place.

How do you take this sport seriously with decisions like that?

Rigged. Judges had money on the fight I guess.

Edit:

Odd, judging in MMA and Boxing are both ****ed though.

That doesn't make any sense. Why would you fix a fight for the favourite? You don't make nearly as much money.

If it was people invested in the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.

In Bradley´s defense, he did fight pretty well. However, wouldn´t surprise me if Floyd sent a few bucks over to the judges before going in the slammer.

Bradley's classy about it. Most guys would never admit that they won a gift. He's admitting he's gonna watch it and see if he really won.

I'm so damned confused on how Bradley wins that when Manny throws more better punches. Bradley did well, esp in the later rounds, but I'm just confused.


Of course already talking about a rematch.

I edited what I said, since it was a dumb remark to make. Pac would have won if this fight was fixed though.

Because then you don't get Pacquaio/Mayweather


Bradley was all out in Round 12 because he knew he lost. Beyond that, he's talking like he either doesn't think he won the fight, or can't believe it, or both. He's barely acknowledged that he actually won.

There should be no decisions in boxing...you just fight a 100 rounds until someone is knocked out or dies. That solves all your judging problems, but instead, creates a whole host of legal and medical ones.

I am absolutely dumbfounded. No way in hell Bradley won that fight. I scored it 10-2 and generously gave Bradley round 1. WTF were the judges watching????

Bradley didn't even think he won.

Now we'll get an unnecessary rematch in the Fall.


BTW Mayweather-Pacquiao is probably dead now, if it wasn't already.

Bradley won three rounds AT MOST, so I cannot understand the scoring at all. There is no other explanation to this fight than a fix. Its been brought up in the past, and once again, its evident tonight. Manny CLEARLY won that fight, and its a shame that boxing has become a soap opera, like wrestling.

This.

I don't have many family memories of Christmas, Birthdays, Dinners etc. but I do remember all of us getting together for every PPV Tyson fight during the late 80s-90s

I grew up expecting knockouts.
Not this winner by decision crap.
(Yea I don't watch much boxing anymore)

And after 60 minutes of play with 36 Shots on Goal to 32 as well as with a .936 save percentage against a .924, the winner of the Stanley Cup is....
The Columbus Blue Jackets!

- see how wrong that is?

Pacquaio got robbed tonight but he lost his last fight so it evens out.

Mayweather = P4P King

I'm a Pacquiao fan and now I know what it's like to be on the short end of a robbery. Good on Pac for not whining, though.

I'm kinda confused on how Kellerman already knew the date of the rematch.
