Default The fight was fixed, and everyone was involved

I honestly think everyone was involved in fixing the fight. Why was Pacquiao inactive during the first two minutes of every round? He could have easily put Bradley out, especially after he buckled Bradley's legs in the first five rounds on many occasions... not to mention Bradley had NO POWER whatsoever and never once even stunned Pacquiao.

Why was Pacquiao not slipping his punches and just letting Bradley hit his guard?
Why did Pacquiao not work the body like he did in previous fights?
Why is everyone in his fight camp not phased by the decision?

I can't believe people are even discussing this fight like it was a real and competitive fight. Definitely a fixed fight and I'm almost positive Arum told Pacquiao to not knock Bradley out of fear of brutalizing another one of his Top-Rank prospects.

F Arum.

My thoughts..

1. I agree the fight was fixed.

2. I think Pac refused to throw the fight.

3. Because Pac refused to throw it, I think Arum bought the judges.

4. Bradley may or may not have been tipped off.

5. Pac wants to retire and pursue other options and get his life back together.

6. This gives Top Rank the Lineal Champion (to some degree) and options on rematch, possible Mayweather event, possible Marquez event.

7. Only problem is they expected Bradley to put on a more convincing performance and there to less controversy.

8. Bradley will keep the belts. Life will move forward with everyone pretending things are OK.

Proof this fight was fixed:



Pac threw less punches

Bradley made it look convincing with his "pitty pat"

Arum paid off the judges

The judges accepted payment and agreed to make it a UD for Bradley

Michael Buffer erased Jerry Roth's card and made it for Pac so it would be more convincing

The HBO and compubox teams were paid off by arum to make it look like a convincing robbery so the public outrage would drive more attention to the rematch

The guard for Floyd's cell was inspired by Floyd's situp routine and paid off the judges

Ms. Jackson slept with Arum (and Oscar)

Oscar helped pitch in with Arum to buy the judges, but with ulterior motives to play golf with Pac

50 gave the judges a copy of his new CD

Boxing has to be the most corrupt sport ever.

I wonder if there were large bets made on Bradley? The only problem with that theory is Bradley could have been KO'd meaning the bettors would have been taking a chance.

It's possible, but I'm not sure about Pac. Some of his punches looked like they could have knocked down other opponents:
