Damn trolls and clowns infesting this board. Bradley won 2 rounds at best. What fighter says he has to go back and watch to see if he won the fight?? Who says shit like that.

Bradley didn't win anymore than 2 or 3 rounds. If you're seriously trying to justify that decision you are extremely deluded.

Do you find any irony in saying that someone outbox someone but didn't land any punches. Jr makes a living at it! Jr avoids Pacquaio takes them on his arms.

I thought rounds 1-3 were fairly close. As I rescore it now so far I gave Bradley round 1 and 2 and Pac round 3. I thought upon first viewing Bradley won 10-12. The thing is, Pac won his rounds far more definitely. I don't see how you think Pac won 7. The first time I watched I remember seeing Pac nearly sweep rounds 4-9 quite comfortably. I'm pretty sure some of the judges gave Bradley that round to in your defense, but that really doesn't say much now does it.

Pac is clearly not the fighter he once was. He's declined physically, and he doesn't have the mentality of a fighter anymore. It's as simple as that really. Bradley fought as well as he could, and I think he would be generous to have gotten a draw let alone a win. The thing is, he looked completely discouraged and just out-classed in the middle rounds but Pac for some reason decided to just take his foot off the gas. Fighters that rely on aggression generally don't last. Fighters that rely on athleticism don't last to long either. Pac is a fighter that relies heavily on pressure and athleticism. The decline has been gradual but in some ways it may appear quicker than in most fighters due to the fact that Pac's style is not suited toward longevity. Look at the tradition. Armstrong, Marciano, Tyson, Chavez, Dempsey were all damn near done or retired at this juncture of their careers. Pac has had a lot of fights, a lot of wear & tear and he's 33 years old.

What about the caucasians, Euro Spanish mixed with Native Americans, and Filipinos?

The overlying larger point is, Manny did not land as much as many people here and definitely the HBO crew acted like he did. You don't have to agree, I'm simply asking you to provide me with some substantiation for the counter argument. Also which rounds specifically do you disagree with my assessment of?
Bradley himself admitted he was rocked a few times during the fight tho.

It was a great fight, and Bradley deserves a lot of credit.
Trolling at its best.

Being objective without bias is right as well.

No troll ?

If you thought Bradley did enough to win round five you should never, ever post here again.

Good luck !
