    Boxing is fucked

    Post  Anfields5thKing on Sun Jun 10, 2012 7:04 am

    Anyone who watched the Pacquiao vs Bradley fight will have just witnessed the biggest robbery in the history of the sport. Manny won all bar one round. It wasn't even close. He gave Bradley a boxing lesson and got screwed. How two judges scored that to Bradley is beyond me. Even the judge who scored it to Manny didn't get it right. 119-109 to Manny all fucking day long.

    No wonder boxing is going down the toilet, the judging is disgusting.

    stream cut out after Rd 9...i wasnt that annoyed because the commentators were saying how Manny was winning 9 rounds to 0.

    i really couldnt believe it!!
    immediate rematch i guess, but it looks like we will never see Pac/Floyd.

    You know what after the gifts Pacman has had against Marquez I can justify this. I think Brandon Rios's gift against Richard Abril this year was even worse than tonight granted I had Pacman up 117-111 you can kind of see Bradley getting some rounds that's If you are in to pressuring an opponent and not keen on clean shots landing. I'm not sure I could give Bradley 7 Rounds of the fight he didn't really do anything significant barring the 1st round and maybe the last 2 rounds.

    I wouldn't be surprised If that crook Arum set this up all along with Bradley announcing a rematch earlier this week or last week (although tongue in cheek I should add) and no other matches out there (Arum flat out doesn't want the Mayweather fight for Pacquiao) It's not impossible to think something is afoot.

    If Arum has nothing to do with this then It couldn't happen to a nicer man. Laughing

    Some of the decisions in boxing have always been dubious to say least not to mention dodgy promoters.
    Not seen the fight but what i have read does sound like general opinion is that manny pissed it .

    Thats a very long sentance i dont really understand. Are you saying you can justify a clearly wrong decision because he won a close one last time?

    thats not how it works mate... the judges arent judging his career, they are judging 1 fight.

    It was a sleep deprived comment I've sort of sorted It out now, I think.

    Nah It was tongue in cheek with me saying I can justify the result. I do think It wasn't a complete robbery though I've seen worse (Williams Lara was worse Paul got the out boxed completely).

    This was far more comprehensive and a far bigger robbery than the Rios fight IMO. That was just a really bad call. This is full blown corruption.

    For me Rios was worse so was Campillo vs Cloud this year (poor Campillo has been robbed twice in his career the Shumenov one was terrible). I think the magnitude of the fight has swayed the general opinion of the fight but that's just my opinion.

    The biggest shame is Tim's win controversial or not has been heavily tainted The biggest night of his career is shrouded in controversy and corruption which is a shame as Tim is such a nice man. On 24/7 he came across so well he is a real good guy he is the type of man who deserves everything he gets.

    Corrupted yeah there was something afoot as I said no fights available for Manny, Arum doesn't want Mayweather and screwing Marquez again would be too obvious so good old Bob has intervened somewhere no doubt. It would be nice If the fans boycott the inevitable rematch and show Bob how they feel but It happen the casual fans will be drawn in hook line and sinker because Bradley beat the Pacman...

    Bradley won 1 won round in the fight. You could, if you were feeling generous give him 1 other round but that's it. 10 rounds to 2 at best. Rios fight was much closer than that.

    Campillo vs Cloud wasn't even close to this. Bad decision obviously, but nothing close to what happened Saturday night.

    This was the worst robbery i've ever seen, no doubt. i'm finished with boxing, virtually no interest anymore anyway. I prefer amateur boxing to professional boxing anyway, a lot more fun to watch above anything else.

    I also read that a lot of money was put on Bradley late on, I wouldn't be shocked if this was set up from the start. ""I'm going to make a lot of money on the rematch, but this was outrageous," said Arum"

    After round 12 finished, Bradley was 99/1 to win the fight, Pacquiao was 1/100 on. Tells you all you need to know.
