His good performance has definitely been overshadowed with the decision but at the same time he just earned himself a ton of money and the exposure that he badly needed in his career. Despite not being everyones favourite fighter at the moment he's put himself right in the mix for big money and legacy building future fights.

I feel bad for him that his moment of glory is coming in such a bullshit way. I wish he would have actually earned it, but he didn't.

Yeah, everyone is raining on his parade.

29-0

Bring on the rematch if Manny wants to get beat again.

He did ok. I wouldn't call his performance "good". What should have happened is he should have earned a huge amount of respect for coming to fight, and putting up a decent effort, got a good payday, and went on about his business. He shouldn't have won.

i dont understand how people can say it was a bad fight, im sure its just the butthurtness of the whole situation.

i do feel for him though, thats gotta be hard.

It was a good performance from him imo, he was in it more than the Primetime commentators were saying, but still losing, it was a valiant effort. To come back from being hurt multiple times and losing consecutive rounds to finish as strong as he did is a credit to just how hard he trained for the fight.

Bradley fought his heart out, and got a decision that many think he didn't deserve(myself included). Justice will be served in november, and Timmy will either prove to everyone that he deserved to win, or everyone will just say that it was a fluke. Either way, he gets to make another huge payday, and he gets a second crack at pacquiao. If round 13 is anything like 10-12 then he has a real shot at winning. No I don't feel sorry Timmy, he will only be hated for 5 months.

Plus if he does win the rematch then he can go to mayweather who will give him something like 20%, and he will earn yet another amazing payday. Should he win that fight...he will be in demand.

Imo, Timmy has a very good chance in the rematch, as long as he boxes Pacquiao. He can then call out Mayweather in whatever fashion he wants i.e. I handled your dirty work bitch! lol

I agree. . . This robbery really didn't do Bradley justice either. . .


I thought his stock would still have gone up, or at least stayed the same despite the losing effort. . .


He showed tremendous heart, and resistance. . He continued to try, as evinced by his punch output - I dont think BRadley has ever came CLOSE to throwing that many punches in a fight before. .


But ultimately, it's going to hurt him, because despite his valiant effort, he didn't even come close to winning the fight, and people will take it out on him .

AS LONG AS he doesn't go around saying he broke his ankle, or severely ****ed it up, I'm cool with Bradley. . I still wish him the best. . I don't expect him to say "I lost the fight" - as he still is going to look out for himself, which I can't really blame him.

No because he will get the rematch now and will make more money in the rematch and get another chance to prove he is one of the best p4p.

Pac will ko him in rematch. See how when Pac turns on the switch he never miss Bradley's bald head and he always out of his feet.

Respect Bradley for at least trying to put up a fight with pacquiao, but deep down in his heart he knew he lost this fight.

29 have tried, 1 got robbed.
