Manny Pacquiao Lost Against Tim Bradley

The decision is final. Timothy 'Desert Storm' Bradley is the new WBO Welterweight Champion. Manny lost against Tim Bradley on a controversial split decision, 113-115 / 113-115 / 115-113.

The 3 judges are Duane Ford who scored 113-115 (Bradley), C.J. Ross scored 113-115 (Bradley) and Jerry Roth scored 115-113 (Pacquiao).

The fight was good. I give the first round for Bradley co'z Pacman seems he doesn't heat-up enough on the start. However, I gave 2nd to 9th rounds for Pacman who fought a good fight against the running-around Tim (thought Timothy Bradley is a brawler and I expect a toe to toe fight). And even though Bradley dominate 10th to 12th round, I think it's not an excuse to give him the WBO Welterweight Crown. Also the crowd seems didn't agree about the result, but sad to say the decision is final.

I think this is the worst fight of Manny Pacquaio, but Manny still remain cool and accept his defeat like a real warrior.

As the people's champ says, 'I respect their decision, but I think I won'.

And even Bradley seemed surprised after hearing the decision. He was all booed by the crowd after the fight.  The judges' decision are controversial, but final decision is final decision.

So, it's better to watch out for the rematch on November 10, between the newly crowned WBO Welterweight Champion, Tim Bradley vs the Philippine icon, Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao.

If there's going to be a rematch, some boxing analysts are already predicting that it's going to be a hell of a day for Bradley that he better watch out.
