Yes I think Manny won....BUT I had it 5 rounds for Manny, 3 rounds for Bradley and 4 rounds a draw. 

The 4 rounds that were a draw had both good offense and defense from both fighters.

By the way, one of the coaches had it a draw and the other two had it about the same way I did.

Could I see a judge giving Bradley a couple of the rounds I had a draw...YES.   Could I see a judge giving Manny a couple of the rounds I had a draw...YES.   I kinda depended on whether you put more emphasis on offense or defense.  You can win a round when you get beat by 50 punches in a round if they are not effective punches.

Now...about that 100-1 and 200-1 crap....Yes they had that up.  But they had taken a $250,000 bet earlier in an earlier round on the fight and had to put up huge lines to try and get money on the other side.  They ended up losing big time on that.

Only 4 even rounds? Glad you're not a judge.

I'm a coach and former boxer and I gave Bradley only 3 rounds at the most. This is professional boxing not amateurs. You can't score many of those cream puff punches Bradley was throwing. If he indeed hurt his foot, how is he going to push off and use his weight to generate any power.

HBO did a special on this last night, their experts watched and re watched and the very best they could do was give bradley 5 rounds and that would be giving him the benefit of the doubt in all the even rounds.

45 out of 48 boxing journalists had pacquiao as the winner.

its clear boxing is hopelessly corrupt
