    congrats to emmanuela

    hbo had the correct score this time with their 8-4

    no need to retire until he's consistently having 7-5, 6-6 type of matches with guys he would have beat wide in his prime

    @ter1413 a pac/ money fight would be a bad fight IMO. It would be very one sided in favor of money.

    Bizarre game plan by Bradley. If you've knocked out 12 out of 31 opponents, you're not a knockout artist and shouldn't try to become one against one of the best boxers in the world. Go with what you do best regardless of whether the fans like it. Bradley made another injury excuse in the post-fight interview, so we're likely to see a rubber match soon.

    I don't think bradley had much of a game plan. I think Bradley was a little full of himself because of the last win and when he saw pacman wasn't hurting him too badly he started showboating. He learned the hard way Pacquiao may be old but can still fight.

    Bradley was limping in-between rounds so he might have been really injured. This fight, his injury seemed more legit than his first fight no sock injury.

    Bradley's gameplan was to go for a knockout.

    His showboating were attempts to bait emmanuela in for a KO counter shot.

    Looking for that one punch knockout ultimately backfired since emmanuela is a notorious mover. Timmeh's strategy made it easier for manny to use his footwork and outbox Tim.

    Timmeh deserves an easy fight next. His last four matches have all been tough competitive fights.

    I disagree i think bradley got desperate when the punches addd up. He showed Manny no respect and ultimately paid

    Agree 100%.

    Really good articles in the most recent The Ring magazine(June 2014.....go figure) about the lead up to the PBF vs Maidana fight.

    Good fight? I need to watch the replay next week. Still making my way home(in HK now) so I didn't get a chance to see it.

    the most competitive Floyd fight since Josue Castillo I

    most common score among fans appears to be 7-5 Floyd
