There is a reason I can't watch boxing though, MMA is just hands down a better sport in this day in age.
To watch a fight apparently this bad only feeds the corruption that started it. We actually should be doing the opposite. If Pac had won and the fight had been straight, you wouldn't see 2 active threads on it in an NBA forum.
Karma is a bitch Pacquiao. He was totally unprofessional today since the beginning. Holding up the fight for the game only to make everyone wait another 30(about, give or take) minutes after the fact, taking rounds off or just trying to steal rounds by only fighting with a minute left, and then smiling and laughing with people ring side in the middle of the fight...it was a complete joke to watch.
Not everyone gets their justice, but Pac did tonight. And this whole devout Christian act for his political career, I'm not buying it at all. Nor should anyone else, like I said, it's just a political move for a guy who has no place in any sort of political office.
And on another note, it was a much closer fight than the crowd and ringside announcers led everyone to believe. Pacquiao was all flash. Though he did land the best punches in the fight, boxing is a score based sport. The punches landed and thrown stats were being counted by a seemingly blind man, since Bradley wasn't getting credited for connects while Pac was getting credited for punches that were not even landing cleanly.
Can't wait until this Mayweather and Pacquiao era is gone. These guys are said to be great for the sport, etc, etc...yet we have two of the best fighters in the world, who are in the same weight class(pretty much), that will never fight. Just be gone already. I'm ready for a new wave of fighters and new stars.
Now off to bed. Goodnight everyone.

why would he be smiling? i'm sure he's pissed..first he felt he clearly got robbed last fight and bradley got gifted with this decision...2nd he wont get an extra $5-10m had pacquiao won and they fight for the 4th time on november. he might just have to retire now instead
I watched the whole fight. Pacquio pretty much won every single round up until the 9th, and even then it was barely tipped in Bradley's favor. The split-decision was bullcrap. I'm not a fan of either fighter at all, just my honest take on it from outside the box.
