Pacman Loses to Bradley

Someone in Vegas is pulling a Scrooge McDuck right now except with strippers and cocaine.

I'm still in shock, you would think the decision being this close would HAVE to go to Manny. Well this definitely puts a wrench into the dream fight, now we'll see Mayweather get out of jail for a warm up and then Bradley potentially.

If Pacman needed any kind of motivation, he definitely has it now.

I watched the PPV at a friend's house and we were all absolutely shocked at the decision.

Now it makes sense why so much money was moving on Bradley at the last second.

Pac was -432 at 2pm it closed -397 at pinny. Lots of late money on Bradley.

I didn't see the fight, but all the reactions I've seen so far suggest Manny was robbed. Bill Simmons has already suggested this is going to make a good 30 for 30 movie, hah.

Lennox Lewis does not approve: Unbelievable! #PacBradley This is another stain on boxing. Even worse than my draw with Holyfield! #Disgraceful

The oddsmaker for the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino sportsbook said that, while it won't happen, this should be the last fight they ever book odds on.

This is why Las Vegas will NEVER have a sports franchise here

Too much corruption

Again, didn't see the fight so this stat could be deceiving.

BUT...

Apparently Pac outlanded Bradley 253-159 in total punches.

Bob Arum is a :lanekiffin: but apparently Bradley told him before the decision was announced "I tried hard but I just couldn't beat him."

AP unofficial scorecards had Manny winning 117-111

Teddy Atlas was covering the fight and he said "unfortunately the judges are sometimes incompetent and sometimes they're more than incompetent...they're corrupt"

The fight itself was worth the money honestly, then you have a legendary bad decision. I actually think it was worth the money given you saw history, be that it was possibly the most negative ever in the sport of Boxing.

Me? Streamed it on my laptop and to my TV with HDMI with some friends. Sure it wasn't real HD, but it sure was better than s--tty streaming on a comp.

I watched it on crappy streaming but that is only because ZERO bars were showing it. Even Buffalo Wild Wings didn't have it.

Boxing is dying and it has only it self to blame. This is just the rats trying to get a little more out of the sinking ship.

I'm glad I didn't pay for it, either... I know I would have broken something. The 117-111 score is a common one, but I've seen some unofficial scorecards from some longtime boxing analysts and experts that even had it 119-109.

You know if Teddy Atlas is disgusted enough to comment publicly on how bad it was, and suggest corruption was at work, then it HAD to be one of the worst decisions of all time. Typically you'd expect Teddy to defend boxing to his last breath.

Incompetent/bribed decisions have skyrocketed in recent years; and whoever is behind it isn't anywhere near as good at it as the fixers were back in the day... in the old days, if you were going to run a boxing hustle you needed for at least one of the boxers themselves to be in on it. Now they're just trying to steal fights with no help from either of the fighters, and everybody on the planet can see the fix is in and that the rigging involves only the judges.

The only way boxing saves itself at this point is if they overturn this obviously paid for decision or rule it a no-contest. This fight was much too high profile for this to just pass. After 30+ years as an avid fight fan, and thousands of fights watched, I'm done with it. I may tune in if this fight makes it to HBO just to see for myself how terrible the decision was, but I won't watch any more live fights... it's just not worth it when the chances are now very good that somebody will get screwed over and ruin it for you.

I think Pac is overrated and Mayweather would beat him, but I watched the fight, and yea it was a pretty good fight but I'll admit it looked like Pac was in control of the fight the whole time.

I look forward to watching the HBO replay this week. Right when it was starting to look like boxing might have some life, the sport points a .357 to its head. What a shame

Yes indeed. Boxing is tying its own noose. I gave up a few years, back, and it use to be huge. They were having enough trouble keeping up with UFC, but this hurts them a lot.

They have to talk about a rematch if only to dream about the dream matchup again.

The sad thing is this really hurts the casual boxing fan (including me) because I'll never pay for a PPV because of what I saw last night.
