Found June 10, 2012 on The Queensbury Rules:
Manny Pacquiao's run of big wins ended Saturday night, but absolutely no one truly believes Timothy Bradley won a split decision Saturday night on HBO pay-per-view. Usually, a bunk decision goes to the A-side of a fight, but Bradley, the B-side, ripped off Pacquiao in a fight where the most I can imagine anyone scoring this fight is four rounds for Bradley to eight for Pacquiao. Two judges had it seven to five for Bradley. Insanity.This was a deeply disturbing decision that is the kind of thing that people makes think boxing is fixed. Watching Top Rank's Bob Arum celebrate with Bradley in the corner, you can't help but wonder whether he hoped that the American boxer would defeat a seemingly fading Pacquiao. You simply don't see fight results like this with the big PPV attraction going down, especially when the boxing universe saw it as an obvious Pacquiao win. (And, P.S., Pacquiao's previous close decision victories over Juan Manuel Marquez don't excuse this ...

  • Hey, boxing is not fixed (ROFLMFAO). Yea. But boxing is officially dead now. Only idiots will continue to do the Pay per view please rape me routine. Their supposedly best boxer is in prison and their supposedly best boxer just got robbed in front of everyone.

    It's like a thousand pound gorilla is sitting in the middle of the living room scraping his butt and slinging sheeeeet at everybody and people are pretending nothing is happening.

    And why does anybody want to give Mayweather another dollar???
