I didn't watch it actually; had no interest in this fight. Figured Pacman would light him up; which he did.

You didn't know it was rigged when you stole the fight. Logic can be tough I know.

thank your for mind blowing insight...genius you are

You don't seem to understand the basics of how this works. You pay for an HBO subscription, thus you get to watch the fight. If you want to watch it live, then you have to pay more. I know this is hard to follow.

Also - nice quote in your sig. It's "reflexes" not "reflex's". LOL.

He's definitely a good dude and a hard worker. He had no business coming up from 140 to fight Pacman though IMO. Just an opportunity for Bob Arum to make more money by keeping it all in Top Rank.

Pacman can't retire. With the exception of Roach, he is surrounded by scumbags.

I watch all the Klitchko brothers fights, I don't feel like the knockouts or decisions are rigged

I don't bother watching anyone else. And yes, I'm Ukrainian so I'm biased

What a horrible decision. Pacquiao definitely won that fight. I was surprised when the announcer read the first score at 115-113 and said "Bradley." And after he announced the final decision, I thought maybe he read the scores wrong. I mean even a 115-113 win for Pacquiao would have been wrong because he definitely beat Bradley by more than that. I read that Arum went up to Bradley before the decision was read and Bradley said, "I tried hard, but I couldn't beat the guy." Such a horrible loss for Pacquiao AND boxing.

I also just saw this article on Yahoo.

Boxing is totally corrupt. The guy that did my knee and shoulder surgery use to be a ring-side doctor. He straight-up told me, "you need to find a new sport to follow; this one is totally corrupt". This was 5 years ago or so he told me that, and he was a doctor for an athletic commission probably 10-15 years before that. With no global governing body, this will continue to happen. It's really disgusting when you consider that these men are literally risking their lives in the ring.

I love Arum grandstanding up their after the fight about how outraged he was. The guy is a fucking slimeball. He can't even keep it straight either. One reported asked him how he had it, and he said 10 rounds for Pac. Then, no less that 2 mins later, he said he had it 11-1 like HBO. He also fabricated that Bradley's manager had Pac winning. Total lie.

I don't know why the media doesn't sack the fuck up and ask the most basic question:

"Bob, isn't it accurate that the person that benefits most from this decision is you since it locks in a rematch under the original contract? Since Pac would have been a free agent after this match?"

Perhaps the most disgusting thing is that Arum is likely richer than any boxer in the world, and there is no end to his greed and manipulation.

I'm not saying I believe what Arum is saying, I'm just saying what Arum is saying lol. Boxing is definitely corrupt and i agree with you. The person who benefits most out of this is Arum. It just sucks that it had to happen like this because it wasn't even a close fight. This is why you HAVE to KO the guy. You can't leave it up to the judges.

It's not OFFICIALLY overturned. I think all this simply is to hype it up, so that everyone involved can make more shit-ton of money from the rematch. Sad part is, if all of this was staged from the very beginning, which probably is true, boxing is not a sport any more. And I hear that it actually has not been for a long time.

Not overturned.

WBO is also very corrupt. Rematch benefits them because of fees Pacman and Bradley pay to fight for their belt.

Boxing is totally corrupt.

I say boycott TOP RANK & GOLDEN BOY promotions... it is all publicity... and there is no sincerity or HONESTY in BOXING anymore... I feel bad for all the boxers who lose there own integrity and honor just because these promoters are so hungry for money.... I say F_ck! Boxing... I rather watch UFC atlease the beating is real and you really see that someone gets knocked out or someone breaks their bones or someone really tap out ... They can't fake that... I will never gonna spend on PPV Boxing ever again... only UFC! ... UFC ROCKS!!!
