pacquiao vs bradley
pacquiao knows he won, the rest of the world knows he won and bradley knows pacquiao won. i’m not excited about the robbery, but that’s what boxing has come down to. bob arum’s last cash cow king has a few more fights in him before he retires. so with that being said, bob arum is going to squeeze manny pacquiao for everything he is worth.
pacman looked good during the first half and possibly could have knocked out bradley in either the 5th, 6th or 7th rounds. i saw a different pacman during the later half of the fight. he either took his offense down a notch, wanted to go the distance, or just maybe he didn’t have the stamina to put on his usual offensive onslaught. maybe pacquiao should have picked up the bible less and focused more on his training.
this is how i see things. if pacman won either by decision or knock out, there would be no rematch. who else would bob arum put against pacquiao with mayweather in jail till the end of summer?! that is the only fight left to make in boxing. if that happened now…there would be nothing left of boxing. i personally think it’ll never happen because mayweather has a lot more to lose with a dent on his record, but i would love to be proven wrong because i myself want to see it happen.
notice pacquiao vs bradley 2 was already being talked about before the fight even happened and more so after the shocking result. pacquiao said he wants a rematch if that is what bob arum wants. bob arum replied, if you want a rematch you’ll get one. exactly the words bob arum wanted to come out manny’s mouth. this whole thing comes down to money. live betting had gamblers putting money on bradley towards the end of the fight. that would be insider knowledge by top level gamblers. bob arum makes a shit load of cash and vegas robs everybody legally. i’m not interested in seeing a rematch because manny won in my eyes and that is all i need to move on from the worst decision in boxing history, and possibly sports history.
