They just all happened to go Manny's way.

The only reason the first fight was a draw was because a judge marked a 7 instead of a 6. (Although I thought Manny won the first fight anyway)

I agree though, they were close fights, and I thought the Bradley fight was close too.

And yes, Manny still has all the speed, power, and talent, but he just doesn't go for the kill anymore. Even after the fight, I didn't expect him to be all smiles. After he lost to Morales, where he clearly lost the fight, he wasn't all smiles. It's just like to him anymore, it's just a job.
LOL, I'm not praising it?

I'm not praising it because thats not what I saw. I didn't see Pacquiao looking like the same type of fighter that Floyd has been most of his career. Sure, you could say he showed some flashes of good defense in this fight, but Bradley was a bit wide and wild with his punches at times too.

Bradley landed a whopping 19% of his punches, what more do you want?

Since Compubox stats tell all, I believe Pac only landed 19 or 20% of his punches against Clottey.

Clottey must be the next Mayweather too!

I never said Compubox stats tell all, but Pac made miss in the same fashion that Mayweather makes his opponents miss. Mayweather just makes it look "pretty"

Manny did make Bradley miss, and he landed some good shots in every round, I'm not denying that at all. To say he looked like Mayweather would be a stretch but he did land some great counters on Bradley for sure. Let's also not take anything away from Bradley, because he did eat some great shots from Pac and he was never really in danger of being KO'd or took any serious damage while managing to stay active.

Bradley was wobbled a few times, but I wouldn't say "hurt" by any means. He no doubt proved that he can take some good shots. I can't say anything about Bradley, he fought with the heart of a true warrior.
