"This is a death knell for boxing, and I'm going to make a ton of money on the rematch," Arum said.

some pacquiao fans had the nerve to defend the man above too

^ I do feel like Manny took parts of rounds off, but i felt like any of Bradley's punches did nothing on Manny. Manny landed almost twice as punches. I know that's not real indicative but still, What i saw maybe isn't 119-109 like HBO or ESPN but i find it hard to believe that Bradley won that fight. there wasn't a part in that fight where Manny was in trouble

the majority of people thought the decision should have went manny's way.

I was told by an impartial set of eyes that the widest you can have it for manny is 9-3 and closest 6-6

I'm not a Manny fan either but I thought he won 8-4 with Tim grabbing rounds 1 and 10-12 when Manny let up.

Arum paid the judges to make sure Tim won so Manny would rematch Tim instead of fighting Mayweather. Arum is killing boxing right now.

I promised I won't come to Tycoons boxing threads anymore but I really do not see how anyone could give the win to Bradley. He was just dominated and Bradley got a few solid body shots the most. I could put the blame on Pac for not finishing him off but that score was ridiculous.

And even as a Pac fan, I thought his fight with Marquez was very close and it could easily swing either way to get the win but at least that was debatable, this one isn't even close.


And I hate Arum, he's the only one preventing the Pac-Money fight, which will never happen now. Arum obviously fixed this since Bradley did sign with TopRank and he will rake in the money with a rematch w/o sharing the pot with anyone like Money. It really is a shame considering Bradley himself didn't think he won.

"Can you believe that? Unbelievable," promoter Bob Arum said. "I went over to Bradley before the decision and he said, `I tried hard but I couldn't beat the guy.' "



There's also word that Manny was going to leave TopRank after this fight but that is just a rumor at this point.

Also, I hated Mannys diva attitude tonight. Wouldn't go out until the bball game is done & took his sweet time to stretch and get ready. He was pissing me off for the most part before the fight got started.

Floyd's going to fight one more time for sure after he gets out of jail.

I also didin't think that TB won...but he got the W. Manuela didn't do anything exciting and it seems that his interest in the fight game isn't what it should be...........Watching the game before a title fight????????? WTF!!

"I dont think the fight was that close, I think pacquaio won by 5 points."

"NO it doesn't make me happy he lost that way but now he knows how I felt this past November"

Whether you are a Manny fan or not, and I am starting to dislike Manny and Floyd both, and hope that they simultaneously KO one another should they ever fight, to the degree that they end one another's careers.

That said, really terrible judging yesterday. No matter how you cut it, Manny won that one. I have no idea how 2 of three judges had Bradley 3 points ahead. I tried to replicate their scores, and could not figure out a reasonable way to do it.

Everyone knows boxing is corrupt and this was the straw that broke the camels back. Manny won and that win would have locked the fight with Flyod. This shit would NEVER happen in MMA.
The promoters killed a dream fight for money or someone is chicken. I agree with , Fok. I will take it one step further and same when they knock each other out they go in comas for 20 years.

It seems you two above are exaggerating Mayweather's influence and sway in the boxing world. His ass was locked up last night in jail and didn't even have access to a television to watch the fight. lol.

I don't see his connection to this robbery. Maybe if Tim was the one to get robbed, we could say Floyd was an indirect motive--like when they robbed Marquez last November and gave it to manny to protect the prestige of a Mayweather fight. Floyd has urged manny to leave top rank and bob arum many times.
