Vegas Judges Redeem Pacquiao He’s back in Money Sweepstakes with victory over Bradley

Timothy Bradley said all of the right things going into his rematch with super star Manny Pacquiao, but he did most of the wrong things in the ring, which cost him his WBO welterweight title and undefeated record on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Pacquiao was awarded a unanimous decision against Bradley in a fight that recalled some of the old fire in the 35-year old Filipino, but in my mind the decision was questionable.

Bradley was the first to engage in the early part of most rounds and even got the better of the two in some heated exchanges, but when he began running and dropping his hands he gave away rounds that he could have won.

After the fight he graciously thanked his supporters and blamed a leg injury for his performance. There was nothing wrong with his legs, but rather his fist that he failed to throw enough to win a fight that was there for the taking.

Now, the demand will rev up for Pacquio/Mayweather fight, but Pac Man really did nothing in this fight to earn that either.

Another rematch against Bradley? Naw, been there and done that.
