Bob Arum is the real winner in this controversy. 

He is make bank on the rematch and Pacquiao doesn't have to fight Mayweather in the process. 

I'm curious to know if you will watch the rematch? Not saying that you will PURCHASE it. Just asking if you will watch it?

I hate to say it because it makes me a sucker but I will be watching it. 

I also will begin saving my money for a Pacquiao wager because I really feel like he was in no way prepared for that fight, and that he also let off the gas about 2/3 of the way through the fight. 

I'm willing to think this is the last time Pacman will schedule a fight during the NBA playoffs, the last time he won't be focused, late to the dressing room, not properly stretch out his calves, not get a proper warm up, etc. 

I thought going into the fight that Pacman's focus would cost him. Then I watched the fight and was proven wrong by Pacman's performance. Then the judges miraculously proved me right. 

No way this happens a second time. This isn't Roy Jones vs Antonio Tarver 2.

Definitely understandable. I think Pacman wins a rematch either way. Not as much money in a Bradley vs Mayweather fight as oppose to Pacquiao vs Mayweather. 

I still think they will make this fight happen. Where there is enough money, there is a way. 

I know these guys have enough money to last their grandchildren's life times but there is a reason that guys like Zuckerberg and Gates still work. There are legacies to leave to more money to be made. Just my opinion though. 

This result just darkens the already dark cloud that hangs over boxing's head.

I'm not paying for a rematch either. But I will be streaming it for free. 

Will you guys be streaming it or just avoiding it all together?

Completely agree with the Arum sentiment.  That guy is awful for boxing and makes someone like Dana White look like the pope.

Duane Ford.
Duane Ford decided to once again come out in the open and explain his controversial judging of last week’s bout between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley. And once again, he came not only short but with confusing and baffling answers to the hottest topic in sports nowadays.

Ford was one of the special guests in Jim Lampley’s HBO program called “The Fight Game” which tackled the arguable decision that Ford alongside fellow judge C.J. Ross came up with in that mega fight in Las Vegas a week ago.

Ford first defended the qualifications of himself and his two other fellow judges that night stating that “they are not trainees” and adding that the three of them have a combined 350 plus world title fights between them. He further states that all of them saw and agreed that Pacquiao and Bradley fought a close fight last June 9th. It is an observation that the fans of the sport strongly disagrees with. Majority that watched the fight both at the MGM Grand and worldwide through television thinks that the Filipino boxer won the fight and that he won it convincingly as well.

“What I personally saw that night, is that the first six rounds, clearly Pacquiao was the winner. It was an exciting six rounds,” stated Ford during the interview with Lampley.

Wait! He said what? He saw Pacquiao clearly winning six rounds of the twelve round championship fight. Then why did he only give five rounds to Pacquiao in his score cards? If he thinks that the then defending champion won six of the twelve, then the least he could score it was a draw for both fighters. Twelve minus six equals six, right Mr. Ford?

Mr. Ford did not stop there. He further defended his actions that night by saying “What I saw on the fourth round is that Pacquiao clearly won that. He hurt Bradley. But the Manny Pacquiao that I judged in the past would have finished him. He let him off the hook. “

Wait again! Did Ford judge Pacquiao’s performance not because of what he saw happening in the ring that night but instead compared him to the Pacquiao of the past? When did comparison of present and past performances become a factor in judging a fight? If that was one of the factors that he used in judging that fight, then his scores should not only be examined but he should be questioned by the Nevada Athletic Commission as well. He clearly is using the wrong criteria in judging a boxing fight. He is clearly biased on old performances of fighters versus the way the fight unfolds in front of his eyes. No wonder he came up with that score card. He should not be allowed to judge again based on this statement of his. He looks not on the fight itself but on what he perceived that fighter was once capable of doing. He clearly has it wrong.

Mr. Ford’s bloopers did not stop there on last night’s TV appearance. He further states that Pacquiao “in the later rounds, I thought he tired and his punches were missing a bit.”

Wait, wait Mr. Ford. Missing a BIT? What exactly did you see that night sir? Did he miss or did he not, did he score or did he not? There is no “bit” in judging a fight. What exactly did you see? Or what exactly did you not see?

Duane Ford was very vocal of his actions right after the fight. He defended his appalling scoring of a fight that the world saw differently. He told the Las Vegas Review Journal that he thought “Bradley gave Pacquiao a boxing lesson.” A comment that is uncalled for, given the issue at hand. Ford’s comment at that time was not only ill-advised, it is also arrogant.

But Duane Ford’s appearance on television last night and he making those remarks just added to the debate that he has erred in judging the Pacquiao-Bradley match. His explanations were absurd and downright confusing. He puts himself in a deeper hole with every statement he makes.

Mr. Ford should just remain silent from hereon and stop embarrassing himself and the sport. He has done enough damage already. He needs to stop defending his controversial work that night with equally controversial answers. He should stop representing other boxing judges, because he cannot. Despite his years of experience in the sport, he has only become a poster boy for erroneous and incompetent judging because of his actions last week and his remarks thereafter.

If Duane Ford thinks that Timothy Bradley gave Manny Pacquiao a boxing lesson, then maybe someone should give him a simple MATH LESSON.

Mr. Ford… 12 - 6 = 6!

Why watch the rematch? Manny won easliy and lost. The Mayweather will never happen now, even if it did, if he can't "beat" Bradley in Vegas, how could he win on the scorecards against Floyd?  Lucky for boxing fans the fall looks good so far (Dawson vs Ward, Chavez vs Martinez, Canelo vs Ortiz) so this unneccessary rematch will be lost in the crowd.  Would rather see Manny fight JMM in Mexico with neutral judges.
