Unlike Manny Pacquiao’s win against Juan Manuel Marquez, this match was met with shock. Not only those present at MGM Grand in Las Vegas uttered a sigh of surprise but all fans around the world too!
A Split Decision verdict was awarded in favor of Timothy Bradley, with the scorecards reading 115-113 in his favor twice, against 115-113 for Manny Pacquiao from the third judge, who most viewed as the one with the best eyesight, or judgment in this case.
The crowd was booing, perhaps because like us, they saw how Pacquiao landed more punches on Bradley, jabs and power punches. Even the latter admitted to his promoter: “I tried hard but I couldn’t beat the guy.”
Though you will read a lot of similar post as this, saying that Pacquiao has “more punches or that he should have won” – we do not have the power to actually change what has been decided…but we know one thing is true, Bradley was declared the winner yet what we saw and watched is surely a different story altogether.
