When fighter of the decade Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao loss to a controversial split decision against Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley, I try to think of all the possibilities, why it happened? Many believed Pacquiao clearly won, if not dominating Bradley that night.
First, I try to watch the fight closely with sounds off—just to focus on the action not the commentary that obviously favored Pacquiao. In this way the anchor’s comment will not influence my judgment.
However, in my opinion Pacquiao still clearly won the fight. So, I try to think again other possibilities.
Second, I try to think what will be the effect of this controversial decision to both Pacquiao and Bradley’s future fight.
So I think ah! Perhaps they let Bradley won the fight so that there will be a rematch. Bob Arum did mention after the fight that,
“I’ll make a lot of money off the rematch, but this was outrageous.”
But I am not sold in this reason although Arum promotes both Pacquiao and Bradley because the fight didn’t generate the anticipated amount. There is no demand also for a rematch—except Bradley who slams Pacquiao after he chose Marquez to fight in December for a very obvious reason.
So, I try to think of something else, this time on Pacquiao fight against Mayweather—if it will ever happen.
In my opinion, that is why Pacquiao is now submitting to all Mayweather’s demand because this is the real reason why he was robbed against Bradley. Force Pacquiao to give in.
Now that Pacquiao finally give in let us see who’s ducking who.
