Because Ruslan was gassing, Bradley's punches were taking a toll, yet at the,sametime couldn't put Rusklan away. Surprised not many of you caught this. Somewhere in the 3rd,4th, 5th Ruslan wasn't punching at all. He was ready to go. Only thing I would agree with OP is Arum would of benefitted having Ruslan win with a more fan friendly style and brush Timmy aside, but I'm sure the people want to see both again.
He wasn't ready to go, he was gassed and conserving some energy. He was ready to start getting outclassed for the rest of the fight, but kept in it. Roach wasn't gonna stop it, you kidding? He's trying to motivate the fighter, and sure enough he came alive.

I have no problem with Bradley winning. I applaud his effort. Just because I feel he lost doesn't make me a hater. He's the champion, so he should get the nod in a close fight. Do I think he had a little help? Yes. Doesn't make the fight any less of a classic. Just shut the **** up and bring something to the conversation, mate.

Bradley was punching back the whole time people who say they are 10-8 are pactards
funny how every judge had the first 2 10-9 i wonder why
Round 1 is a 10-8 if the KD happened. IMO obvious delayed reaction KD, but ref didn't call it so you can't score 10-8.

Round 2 is a judgement call, but basically when you're amazed the guy made it out of the round on his feet, that's a 10-8, and that's what happened.

I had it 10-8 and I'm not a Pactard. Never cared for Pacquio. You seem to have a problem with someone who has a different opinion.

I find it a lil funny how the people saying 'Bradley won' don't seem to understand that had the ref made the ACTUAL, right call in the 1st round, the official ruling would have been a draw.

Bradley literally only won that fight officially because the ref made a blatant wrong call.

And thats fine because when scoring a fight i never take the ref/judges/commentators into consideration.

Nah I agree 100% he was hurt...and close to being out, and would typically agree. I'm just pointing out that in this situation while yes he was hurt, he never stopped not only punching, but actually scoring.

The punches he did hit Rusian with weren't doing anything, while Provo almost had him out. He was walking on pins after the round.

I disagree with the assumption it was a knockdown. No doubt a punch hurt Tim, and his legs were gone but he would not have gone down if not pushed down. That said he may have gone down after that considering he was hurt, but he was pushed down at that time.

If your legs are unable to withstand a very minor push 2 seconds after a massive blow, and you can't even stand up straight, thats a textbook delayed reaction KD.

Well who busted up Rusians face and why did his corner think about stopping the fight?Both fighters did damage just Bradley took more.I don't remember who said it but when a fighter keeps getting hit with right hands it's time to retire.
