They're making fun of it right now on the radio saying that Mayweather is probably like in Goodfellas making pasta while watching a link to the fight.

Eh. Mayweather doesn't want to fight Manny. His contract demands make that clear.

Arum is behind it. Gives Bradley the decision so he can build on his stardom and cash-in on the re-match.

what a complete joke of a "sport" boxing has become. might as well categorize it as "sport entertainment" along with WWE

Kellerman is such a dolt. But between egging on a rematch, and talking about how 'respected' people scored the fight for Bradley, he's probably in on a presumed fix.

I don't know why judges would screw over Pacquaio though, unless they wanted to completely **** up Bob Arum.

I think this might've been Manny's last fight in Vegas. Hell, don't be surprised if this was his last fight on US soil.

Right. He can't get a Mayweather/Pacquiao fight if one of his own fighters beats Pacquiao.

he's not concerned with mayweather. he's concerned with hyping up the pre-scheduled re-match between bradley and pac. see where this is going?

I read pac is nearing the end of his contract with top ranks so I guess Arum wants a new pet to turn into a star (not to mention pac only has a few fights left in him). Also, he wants to milk more cash of a possible Bradly vs pac rematch, seriously I wish Pac signs with the Golden boy promotion after his contract ends and take the fight with Mayweather, make sure that corrupt **** dont get a single penny off that mega fight and the profits goes to his number 1 rival instead.

EDIT: I think Pac's contract ends after 2012 so I guess Arum wants to milk money off him as much as possible with this Pac-Bradley rematch, he probably thinks the mayweather fight wont happen before pac's contract end (or with him as Pac's promoter).

That's it. I'm done watching boxing. Boxing is over as a sport. It's done.

What a farce!

Mayweather and Arum hate each other. Putting a dollar in Floyd's pocket is the last thing Arum wants to do.

Pac-Mayweather is so 2010 and we're still here talking if the fight will ever happen.

I was totally confused why Bradley's coach was telling him to not make any mistakes in the last round. Now I know. In a fix-free world, his coach would have known the only chance Bradley had to win the fight would be a knock-out in the last round.

Saw this result online and the reaction to the fight and honest i am not surprised. Boxing is as corrupt a sport a there is.

I stopped watching a long time ago.

Pacman should've knocked him out, don't know why he had to go the distance..he had tons of chances.

Boxing has been rigged for years, I'm not surprised.

I had it 118-110 Pacquiao, but it's clearly a fix so whatever.

Bradley tweeted this picture 11 days ago. The left is reserved for the champ, is it not?

Boxing's been corrupt since always. Tunney-Dempsey, Leonard-Hearns, this is nothing new.

There's still good fights though; like the last Mayweather fight, and the Froch-Bute fight that just happened. Next week JCC Jr. and Andy Lee on regular HBO; that's gonna be a great fight. It's not all about the superfights.

By the Facebook feed from me, filipino's in Winnipeg are outraged and swearing all over the place proclaiming boxing is "rigged"

I felt the same way about the Pacquiao and Marquez fight(3). I scored the fight in Marquez favor.
