Default Why did Buffer not announce the result as a "Split decision"?

You hear Buffer just announce the scores without saying that it's a "Split decision" which you usually hear before the scores are announced.

Controversial. Buffer & Arum played their cards perfectly.

He said it at the end of the scorecards and not at the beginning, awesome thread bro.

It's better when they don't announce the result at the start, more suspense. As soon as he said "115-113....Pacquiao" I said "OH **** it's gonna be a split verdict!"

Sometimes they say it at the start, sometimes at the end.

I found it strange, too. It made it all the more shocking, not being prepared for a split decision and then hearing him say '115-113 for Pacquiao;' I thought 'holy shit, did Buffer just botch the delivery of a UD, or did Bradley actually get a judge?'

I told you faggots, Buffer is to blame. Michael, listen to me; you're a bitch. And the reason Manny lost this fight.
