It is official folks, boxing is dead. RIP boxing.
By Geoffrey Ciani: Where to even begin?! There were so many questions going into last night’s mega bout showdown between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, and many of these questions were actually answered. For starters Manny Pacquiao showed that he is still at an elite level. His speed, power, and timing simply proved too much for Bradley’s abilities. To his credit Bradley came to fight, but time and time again he was rocked by left hands that just could not miss the mark. That was essentially the story of the fight. I myself scored it 118-110 for Pacquiao, and I did not think the rounds were particularly hard to score. I gave Bradley rounds 10 and 11. I can see an argument for maybe giving him the final round, and if you really wanted to stretch it, maybe the first and the second both of which I believed were close, yet clear rounds for Pacquiao. That the judges somehow awarded this decision to Bradley is maddeningly inexplicable!
MORE TO COME!
