Yeah, but the difference is that those were close fights. This one was only competitive in the 1st round, after that, Pac ran away with it.

ESPN just quoted Bob Arum:

"Unbelievable," Bob Arum said. "I went over to Bradley before the decision and he said, 'I tried hard but couldnt beat the guy."

LoL the End of Days!


You know me JB and I'm One of the Biggest Floyd fans in the world but I honestly think Pacman did enough to win. I mean if you compare this fight to the robberies against Marquez it's crazy!

Im almost 110% sure this BS fight was planned for a lucrative rematch and a very good way of dodging Floyd!

You can be sure Bob Arum paid the judges for 3 reasons:

1 - Rematch/trilogy means more $$$$$
2 - Pac will retire soon and Arum can use Pac's name to build up Bradley to make more money.
3 - Arum can avoid dealing with Mayweather.

Examiner.com's Brad Cooney even took it a step further to say that after Pac beats Bradley twice, then the fight with Mayweather will be ready for both guys and they can make a killing. Possibly so I guess.

I am not saying this is just like the JMM fights. It's much more hilarious than that. I'm also not sold that this was Arum playing "Avoid-the-Floyd".

It's an issue with how fights are judged/regulated. This is what we have seen forever, and we see it in all major sports, especially in Boxing and MMA.

Well, Mayweather is right that random blood and urine testing is needed in boxing.

Pacquiao interviewed with Marquez regarding the fight. At 5:27, Pac asked Marquez who he felt won the fight and Marquez said he felt Pac won by 4 points.

I'm sure Skip Bayless is gonna pop a blood vessel in his forehead tomorrow on ESPN, but it was a closer fight than a lot of people are giving Bradley credit for. Was it close enough for me to say I thought Bradley ACTUALLY won? No, not in my opinion, but that's not the point. We can't have it both ways. Either the fight was fixed, or the judges made a mistake.

Could this be a setup by Top Rank? Absolutely, and I wouldn't be surprised one bit. I've been putting Arum on blast for years. However, that's pretty risky business because these kind of decisions hurt the image of Boxing (and MMA as well) to a lot of people. Who's to say anybody cares to spend $55 on the rematch after believing the last fight was fixed? Anything is possible with Arum, but I have doubts in regards to a fix.

As always on Sundays after a big/controversial fight like this, I am going to watch the replay a couple times later today and see if I notice anything I missed the night before.
