Default Could the Pac shocker be an Arum masterstroke?

Arum'll make a fortune with the already-signed Pac-Bradley II, 'n no longer have to take heat for avoiding Mayweather.

It's win-win for him -- worthy of Don Corleone

Arum makes a fortune out of a potential trilogy, and knows Mayweather wouldn't offer Pac more than 2.50 and a curly wurly to fight him now.

@JG: I agree with your assumption, & it allows Marquez to be avoided too.

I have a feeling that with Manny's new found faith(I thought he's always been fairly religous!)assuming it's not just to get back into the Jinkster's good books,that he'll feel this is a punishment for his past indiscretions.
I think Bob might be looking at it a tad more clinically though.We know he certainly doesn't believe Jesus is involved.
Out of interest,what is the Jewish equivalent of saying "Jesus Christ" in a negatively expressive way?

Someone needs to take a screenshot of the pic of Bob ecstatically congratulating Bradley next to his post-fight interview complaining about an outrageous robbery.

It's tough enough to win a high-pressure match when a fighter's corner all on the same page, BF. Imagine whatta powder keg Pac's corner must be. Freddie 'n Ariza look daggers 'n Arum wants both out.

I think people overstate the whole buying off judges thing. I honestly don't know what to think of what happened. Its a little out there to say Arum set all this up, with there being so many factors that need to be involved for that to happen...something strange is going on, but we shouldn't leap to the conclusion that Arum is behind this.

Btw, John G, what was your scorecard?

Yes, I was, S. It was a long silent drive back to L.A., 'n Pac got the nod that night. Can only cringe at what the drive back must be like today.
