A dark day for boxing indeed. Last decision I remember being this horrific was Lewis/Holyfield I

I wonder how many of the people complaining here actually watched it.

I just watched it, scored it 119-109 Pacquiao. Only 4 rounds were even close so the most it could possibly have been was 116-112 to Pacman. Pretty disgusting really.

LOL what a joke! You telling me they've mocked up a poster and got a date within 6 hours of the fight ending? Couldn't be more obvious that this is a hussle.

Find all the "they fixed the fight" talk a bit much, too much at stake to risk collapsing such a lucrative sport as Boxing over.

Crappy decision yes! but not corrupted or fixed surely!

No one in the boxing world would be careless enough to play that game! No conspiracy here folks!

Not sure if serious?! Many fighters have come out and stated that they've witnessed Bob Arum doing fishy dealings, even as recent as last year.

Bob Arum cares about money and that is it. He says it himself! He knows if the Pacquiao/mayweather fight happens, Pacman will retire and he'll lose a massive financial asset so he is milking him for all he can.
You honestly don't find it suspicious that they've got a poster, a date and a venue for the rematch just 5 hours after the 1st fight had finished?

Based on the information from the forumite who posted it, the second fight was planned well before the first fight and result happened. Make of that what you will.

Arum most likely planned this becuz theres no one else left for Manny for a fight other then Mayweather, and since Bradley and Manny are his fighters he gets big money on a rematch. Also doesn't hurt to have an undefeated fighter on his roster.

#1 Lyoto "the Dragon" Machida
#2 Junior "Cigano" Dos Santos
#3 Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
#4 Fedor "Last Emperor" Emelianenko
#5 "the Prodigy" BJ Penn

Im on another level now
