This one should have been very easy....Pac is still a great fighter.....but a blind man could see he is not as versatile as Floyd.

It's re****ed judging . I can't see why anyone would fix the fight in Bradley's favor, it makes no sense financially speaking. This is similar to the decision in Rios / Abril (which could have been fixed) or Williams Lara.

Agreed. The Uforic hysteria/hype surrounding Pac made a whole hell of a lot of people hallucinate when they saw the fight. You had people talking about Bradley got his **** kicked. We know what peoples faces look like after Pac kicks their ****. Bradley's face looked like it did before the fight. Fight was close. Depending on how you score fights, it could have gone either way. If Bradley had actual power, there would have been no controversy at all. In my opinion his lack of power is what left rounds open to interpretation. Pac couldn't really hit him all that much.

For anyone interested, I suggest they watch this video about the Pacquaio - Bradley fight. It shows how incredibly biased the HBO commentators are. I think most people thinking this fight was some blowout haven't bothered to watch the fight without sound, and are simply going off the commentators and the crowd reactions. Honestly the fight could have gone either way, I can tell you right now the compubox stats were complete bull****. Anyone see Bradley's face after the fight? TOTALLY UNMARKED, if Pac had hit him with all the power shots the stats claimed, he'd of had one messed up face. Bradley got absolutely NO credit for his defense in the fight, many times they said Pacquaio was popping him, he was catching the punches, dodging them, making Pac swing and miss at the air. He showed incredible defense, which I think gets VERY little respect in boxing scores. I think the fight could have gone either way, anyone claiming it was a blowout simply is full of ****. I do not care the media's scores, I'm sure many of there opinions were NOT impartial, due to extremely biased commentary, fallacious compubox scores, and the fact that Manny is such a popular fighter. They are human beings, and influenced by bias, just like everyone else. I can tell you from an unbiased standpoint (I don't favor either guy) and from watching the intricacies of the fight, even slowing down certain parts, it was a close fight.

There were a few close rds plus Pac slowed down in the last 3 rds in which Bradley also looked his best. The 9th was Pacs last hurrah. Even in the first half where Pac looked his best, he only looked good in the last 30 seconds, Bradley landed more and outworked Pac in the first 2 1/2 minutes of those rds. I think i scored it 7-5 for Pac. Id pick Bradley again to beat Pac in a rematch. Pac only looks good against old shot or weight drained opponents. Dude got ktfo by a lightweight

Of course he will. I have no doubt that ARUM will put some bum from his stable in there to restore the hype.
