Unfortunately I cannot say that it is one of the most crazy decisions I have seen in boxing, because I have seen worse.

Boxing, horse racing become relics

Everything has to evolve. To sit still while others are improving and progressing is to fall hopelessly behind. Boxing and horse racing are still trying to live on the same things they did 100 years ago, when they, with baseball, were among the most popular sports in the country. This past Saturday, with a big fight and the Triple Crown finale the same day, these two museum-pieces...

My thoughts on Boxing

Now I haven't actually seen the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley that took place on Saturday night in Las Vegas, but I heard that the decision made by the three ringside judges was anything but fair.
