Default I scored it a tie, no robbery, PacWasDeBest

Just rewatched Bradley/Pac and was suprised at scoring it a tie.

Sorry, this wasn't a robbery.

Some things struck me, this was done with Bradley on a bad foot. Would he have administered a can of whup ass otherwise?

I watched it in Russian so no fanboy commentators.

Pacquaio, unlike so many people say, did not look on top of his game "best in years". He looked like utter shit, followed Bradley around with no game plan other than trying to land a scrap because that was his only plan, to blow Bradley out of the picture by pure force. However, Bradley came to box, and did a great job. He was outgunned in the exchanges but he did a great job at keeping those exchanges down to a minimum, and that's where Pac had no answer.

So yes, in the rematch, Pac better come to the ring with something on his mind other than basketball because Bradley won't be fighting on a bad ankle then.

BTW, I'm a big Pac fan and this thread has nothing to do with Mayweather.

I would have put this thread up yesterday but a road crew cut my fiber optic cables and therefore shut me out of my internet for 24 hrs.

So because Pac didn't live up to your expectations you scored it for Bradly. Thanks for proving that you are as big of a dumbass as the judges.

I have been doubting my own sanity lately because I had Bradley a 1 point winner. I was really surprised when I logged on to see just how much in the minority I was, because my scores are usually pretty much in agreement with the consensus.

I will have to wait for the fight to come on to youtube since I didn't record it, but I don't feel any urgency to revise anything.
Anyway, point is that it's good to see that more and more people are beginning to see that it was not a robbery.

the only way u can score it a tie is if you give all the close rounds to Bradley so the first where he actually did OK untill Pac landed some big lefts near the end of the round.
Bradley had a good ninth round so you could give him that - but again the big power shots that did damage and were cleaner were pacs.
To give Bradley the win is mind boggling Pac basically won at worst 5 out of the 6 first rounds and you can make a clear case for him winning them all. Its not a tuff fight to score at all. Bradders takes a couple of the round at the end of the fight but its not close

Pac didn't really do anything those first two rounds.

Last four rounds Pac was gassed. If you look for the exchanges and count power shots then Pac looks great. But exchanges in this fight are few and far between. And no matter how great Pac looked at times they were still one point rounds. Bradley was controlling the pace, Pac was fighting Bradley's fight. I do have Pac sweeping all the mid rounds.
