Where's the Outrage for the Terrible Pacquiao vs. Bradley Decision?
As we struggle to make sense of the atrocious decision that gave Timothy Bradley the win over Pacquiao, we need to figure out how to put this into perspective. Let’s break it down for all the participants in the fight and see where the blame lies for one of the worst decisions in a big fight to ever come down the pike.
And yes--it was that bad. Yeah, I know--we were brainwashed by the announcers and fell victim to “groupthink.” We were so stuck on the fact that Pacquiao was winning that we didn’t see Bradley’s late surge. To that I say bull--just pure, unadulterated doo-doo.
One of the problems is that fans and media aren’t angry enough. In an effort to appear even-tempered, some people want to rationalize it. “Oh, it was closer than we thought. Oh, the judges had an off-night.” Yeah, right. Either Pacquiao won that fight by a mile or I have zero clue of what to be looking for when judging a fight.

Manny Pacquiao (c) vs. Timothy Bradley
Pacquiao is coming out the aggressor as Bradley is on his heels. Bradley is looking to counter off Manny's left lead but Pacquiao is getting out of range. Bradley throws a number of flurries but he's not connecting with much on it. Manny finishes the round strong with some nice straights.

The collective feeling after the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley fight was this: Pacman got robbed. Split decision? Try wrong decision. Who called this fight, anyway?
