Pacquiao vs Bradley: The story of the three blind mice
As the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley went to the scorecards, there was no doubt in anyone’s mind that Pacquiao had comfortably won the fight. But enter the minds of two of the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s ‘super competent’ judges, Duane Ford and C.J. Ross, according to NSAC’s-Keith Kizer.
These two imbeciles awarded the fight to Bradley 115-113, while third judge-Jerry Roth scored it the same – but instead he gave it to Pacquiao. We will leave him alone.
Pacquiao landed more far more power punches, with a 34% landing compared to 19%. Bradley landed 159 from 839, with Pacquiao landing 253 of 751.
Although Pacquiao couldn’t secure the elusive knockout he was able to rock Bradley with his straight left hand and hurt him at stages throughout the fight.
But back to the judges, I scored the fight 11-1 to Pacquiao and at worst you could see it scored 8-4 with some close rounds in the middle stages. However, boxing fans worldwide are dumbfounded on how anyone could score that fight to Bradley.
Founder and CEO of Top Rank Promotions, Bob Arum who promotes both Manny and Timoth,y could be excused for agreeing with the decision but instead he took a shot at the judges.
“What you saw tonight was ridiculous, how do you explain it?” he said.
“I’ve been in places where there have been hometown decisions, but these people really don’t know how to score, they’re really too old to judge. What were they looking at? This is bad for the sport of boxing”
UFC President-Dana White who always has something to say especially against judges and Athletic Commission’s also vented his anger and the incident was nothing to do with his sport, “You’ve got to be f*cking kidding me! That is disgusting,” stated White. “NSAC are the worst athletic commission in the country.”
The pair will now move on to their contracted and scheduled rematch on November 10, 2012 but that will be no consolation to Pacquiao who although won’t admit his anger towards the judges, lost his first fight in 7 years and surrendered his WBO Welterweight title.
“I want the rematch,” stated Pacquiao.
“If you want it, you can have it,” Arum responded.
The only problem is, will anyone watch after another knife through the heart of boxing?
