*SPOILER* Pacquiao vs Bradley

From BoxingScene.com

Quote:
MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Timothy Bradley (29-0, 12KOs) shocked the world by winning a close twelve round split decision over Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38KOs) to capture the WBO welterweight title. The scores 115-113 for Pacquiao, 115-113 for Bradley and 115-113 for Bradley.

Bradley started the fight in full control for most of the first round. He was quicker with his defensive movements. Pacquiao started to rally in the final ten seconds. Bradley was making it a rough fight in the second round, but Pacquiao was returning heavy fire that pushed Bradley back often. Bradley, to his credit, was not intimidated and usually countered back with fast combinations. Thing certainly got more heated in the third round, with Pacquiao starting to attack more often and Bradley doing his best to answer back.

In the fourth, the fight continued to get rough. Bradley was taking the fight to Pacquiao, who was outhustling the challenger with more accurate punches. Bradley looked a little stunned by a combination in the final minute. Rather than hold, he stood and traded punches with Pacquiao until the bell. Both fighters had their moments in the fifth round. And they also closed strong by trading punches, toe to toe, in the final minute with the entire crowd on their feet.

Pacquiao controlled the action in the sixth. Bradley came back in the seventh with a lot of defense and he never stopped trading punches with Pacquiao to make it close. More toe toe to toe action in the eight and ninth, with Pacquiao getting the better of the exchanges and doing more damage. They slowed down in the tenth. At this point Pacquiao appeared to be the fresher fighter of the two. Bradley continued to slow down in the eleventh, although Pacquiao wasn't doing too much himself. Bradley certainly closed better than Pacquiao in the final round. Pacquiao was stalking him, looking to land something big, but Bradley was slipping a lot of punches and landing well placed counters.
******* crazy that! What happens to Pacquiao/Marquez IV? Or the dream fight of Pacquiao/Mayweather?

Bradley certainly gave as good as he got! Good for him!

Bradley fought hard, I was wondering if Pacquiao left it too late in the round to land his flurries, like he was desperately trying to save the round. Will have to watch it again. But the decision is crazy! SD for Pacquiao at least IMO.

I want to see quick rematch.

I thought it was unanimous easily. He outstruck Bradley by almost 100 punches and the percentage landed was heavily in Pacquiao's favor. He controlled the fight. I don't see how anyone could have given Bradley more than a couple of rounds.

I'd have no problem seeing a rematch...as long as we don't have to endure another series of 24/7 with Pacquiao in it!

As a boxing fan, it's a travesty. As a strong disliker of Pacquiao I say..."meh".

There has to be a rematch... It would really suck for it to end like this. Hopefully Pacquiao puts him away next time.

Yeah that was a shitty decision.

Pacquiao was never in Floyd's league anyway, he saved himself a huge ass whippin', what next? Bradley/Mayweather?

Well what it boils down to is that that's one hell of a dominant champ, and a hell of a legacy being tampered with there and down to judges!.....again! I may not like Pacquiao, but if he deserves the win, then that's what the champ should get.

Of course there will be a rematch, that was the whole point of them fixing the fight. And I'm sure they'll find some dupes that will continue to pay for that shit that's about as legitimate as MTV's Bully Beatdown.

That and money.

The line moved about 130 dollars in the last hour of betting towards Bradley.

What a joke of a "sport".
