Ironically, the only two people in the world who felt that Bradley won last night’s fight happens to be the only two people who matter. Shame on judges C.J. Ross and Duane Ford….and the corrupt puppet master who made this happen.
“Sometimes scorers of fights are incompetent. Sometimes they are more than incompetent; they are corrupt,” said Teddy Atlas, a former boxer and trainer, who now serves as a commentator on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights.
“It doesn’t have a national commission like the other sports does. It doesn’t have a police party, ah, like the other sports have, and therefore you get this sort of situation. I’m not sure if it’s accurate that Pacquiao was about to leave one of the kingpins of the sport, Bob Arum…his contract was running out, but I think it was. And when that happens, sometimes funny things happen.
“But the bottom line is, if you’re an honest man, and knows what he’s watching, Pacquiao won that fight…only one man won that fight. And you know, ah, he doesn’t get the decision. It’s an injustice to the sport, an injustice to the fighters, it’s an injustice to the fan base. It’s one of the problems with the sport of boxing right now in that the wrong guy wins sometimes,” Atlas said during a post-fight interview via telephone on ESPN.
