The fact that Timothy Bradley feels that he won his controversial bout against Manny Pacquiao shouldn’t be a surprise. No one expects Bradley to go around telling people that he won a fight that he shouldn’t have. So when Bradley joined ESPN Radio Chicago with Waddle and Silvy earlier today to talk about the aftermath of the fight, it’s clear that Bradley really believes that his victory was deserved. He talks about how his corner also felt he won the fight, as well as how when he heard the third judges’ scorecard, he knew he had won. But everything hasn’t been peachy keen for Bradley after his victory. He’s had to deal with receiving death threats as a result of the win and he discusses that as well. How he thinks he fared in the fight against Pacquiao: “I fought my fight. I fought the best I could that night given my injuries but I’m not the one to blame. I’m not the one to blame for the results. The judges saw the fight the way they saw the fight and that is that. They ha...
  • I see Harry Reis disagrees with the decision. That in itself will make boxing less of a sport from now on. The government getting involved will lessen it even more but it was them that caused Pacqiao to lose anyhow because of his comments about America and its support of gay-same sex marriages which is an oxymoron in Reid making a comment in favor of Paquiao. Gay people are really confused animals. Kind of like judges in Las Vegas. Legitimate isn`t a word in their dictionary anymore than in a government members one.
  • We're attempting to change the legacy and perception of black athletes from being ridiculed everyday in the general media. On Monday, June 18th for one week (you can vote today) we will galvanize all cultures from around the world to Vote for http://www.BlackAthlete.net/ to save Black Sport History along with the spirit black athletes have exhibited on and off the field to keep sacred the accomplishments that has had an effect on our communities and in the hearts and mines of our children and the future generations to come.
  • Yes sir, you've got to love the "hearts and MINES of our children". Now, that is funny!!!
  • yeah... this is such a great idea... its about time blacks get some positive feedback for their athletic prowess... now... if only the music industry would give blacks a fair chance now...
  • Help us eliminate racism in sports globally.


  • Blacks are not the reason why racism is still alive..check the facts before making a statement like that..blacks don't get their just reward and so when they create a network you say stop..if it wasn't for a black man no one would be able to use a cell phone..as you can see again blacks don't receive enough recognition for what they do..so if creating a network for blacks is what they want then let them
  • Wow, how do we go from an article on a successful black athlete to racist white networks. It appears to me that RolandtheWise is the racist here trying to drum up hate against the networks. Got to have an alterior motive. As long as "blindeye" turns a blind eye to the fact that both blacks and whites are racist he/she will continue to post comments like "blacks don't recieve enough recognition for what they do". When in fact that is what this particular article tryed to do. Nice try "blindeye"!
  • Completely agree. If there is a black network then there should be a white network. But in reality there should only be one network.
  • What is the problem with black people having their own network..the problem I see is that people hate to see the advancement of black people..if you look at the ownership of networks who owns them...white people do..you can say only one network but in all honesty there network will be lopsided as it already is
  • You may be right. Maybe alot of the networks are predominantly owned by white people, of course I have no idea where you are getting your facts. The difference is, is that white people don't feel the need to advertise the race it is owned by. Of course there are still racist people out there, black and white. We will never totally uliminate that which is unfortunate. But, the problem I have with organizations like the is they feel the need to specify color and seperate races. That type of thing to me does fuel racism.
  • you are both correct....you cant only have one netwrok because the media isnt fair and partial....but on the other hand by creating a black athlete network that is also segregation but it also provides hope....if it was a fair world i would say yes we only need one network but its not and with only one you get one side of the story...they make money off fear the only solution is to be selfaware and share the truth with others getting rid of the middle man...the media!!!! nice topic
  • or WET (White Entertainment Television) instead of (BET). To stop racism you need to stop segregating everyone by color.
  • There is so much racism that this issue will always be a hot topic
  • Don't try logic Jeff. If Blacks want segregation then let them try. The market will dictate if it will work.
    Next, they can start opening black only schools. They can have public buses segragated so that they don't have to sit near any other races. Of course "blacks only" restaurants will really go a long way to ending racism. It all makes perfect sense. 12.6% of the American population wants racial isolation? (Actually, less than 1% of that 12.6%)
    Good luck with that.
  • A black athlete sports network is racist in itself.
  • if you take a look at the ownerships of the netowrks then maybe you would understand why blacks may want to create network in which they own
  • it you take away the word black there still be a problem with the mere fact that a black person even owns a network..the sponorship for anything that a black owns is low and face it..it's fact and no one wants to acknowledge that..in this day in age there will never be equality amongst races..I don't care how hard people try to say that racism is dead it's not..everyday there is something that happens that race is the driving force behind it..
  • I seem to see alot of black athletes on tv now. Am I missing something here? Would this black athlete network only show black athletes, or would it show all athletes, but be black owned? I don't give a damn what color the owner of an network is as long as it covers sports. Any program that omits/shows athletes because of color would be terrible for everyone and I would boycott such a network!
  • Racism is simply the result of ignorance. There are bigots on all sides. There is only ONE BLOOD (several types; O+, A-, etc)flowing through every human's veins. Therefore, we are all kin to each other if we were to go back far enough. I suppose I am classified caucasian since I am an American born with Irish-Scottish descent (or would it be more politically correct to say Irish-Scottish-American). In my opinion, one is either American or they are not! So why do we continue to PUSH the AGENDA of idiots - RACISM.
  • There are true boxing fans out there that understands that judges are human and they make mistakes. I know the different between a close fight and the absolute "Rip-Off" of fans hard earned money for good honest entertainment by boxing promoters. The boxing game is much bigger that one judge and two boxers.
  • Rolandthewise........do your children have gold or silver mines ???????
  • "and in the hearts and mines of our children"

    Maybe more time in English class and less time playing sports would help.
  • Bradley didn't win the fight, but the judges thought Pacquiao lost the fight. Or maybe didn't put enough effort into winning the fight. Next time around, Pacquiao will ensure there is no doubt he is the better, stronger fighter. Bradley had nothing on his punches.
  • people that make death threats and terrible comments to an athelete that is only doing his job are very simple minded and ignorant people,its people like these that make the world an unpleasent place so plz idiots keep it to yourselves plz for the sake of true fans.
  • My friends actually talked me into watching this fight and I called it watch the looser actually will win and shoenough, This is the reason I no longer follow boxing is because of decisions like what I saw in the Pacquio Bradley fight when every one has him winning all rounds to include me what a joke and for him to think that he actually won LOL. I give MMA (UFC) Strikeforce, most of my time these days it is not rigged, fake or corrupted. I actually catagorize boxing as entertaining sports and hold WWW higher than Boxing when it comes to entertainment you see if you think that Professional Boxing and WWW are real then you are totally mislead.

  • I call it poetic Justice for the Marquez fight which i feel was a robbery. The last two fights that Pacqiao has been involved in have been questable decisions one for one against. Go Figure! I feel this much that Bob Abram it doing everything possible to hinder a Mayweather showdown. I guess he doesn't want his cash cow to lose his luster but after last two fights things haven't looked like Pacqiao is a contender against Mayweather! IN MY OPIONION!!!!
  • All of you pac fans that feel there was an injustice, instead of being stupid, direct your anger to the referees, the boxer has "zero" control of the scoring or outcome of a fight even you know that.
  • Help us eliminate racism whining (because there are other minorities in sports other than the black athhlete) like more asians and whites in the NBA. Ooops ! Am I allowed to say that ?. . . Well never mind this post, I refuse to play the race card. I'll earn my way there.
