    So as I'm sure many of you know, Manny Pacquiao was completely robbed from his belt after a horribly one-sided fight against Timothy Bradley.

    As the sport is officially dead, I'd like to have discussions of your favorite boxing moments.

    Heh. This is nothing new, sadly. In addition to derpfests like last Saturday, boxing judges routinely score fights for the hometown/home country boy.

    Honestly, I think those 2 judges are the only ones in the WORLD that thought that Bradley won. Fuck, even Bradley's corner thought he lost.

    Yeah, what a fucking joke.

    Anyway, I can't believe the Haye Vs Chisora fight is looking like its going ahead. What a bad message that is sending.

    As a citizen from Las Vegas, lemme take this time to say that I hate my city and that I'm very sorry Vegas screwed that up. I believe that CJ Ross and Duane Ford were either very stupid or in on a job.

    Being a total Manny fan, it really bugged me, my family, and my friends. I'm just very surprised Manny was graceful in defeat. That's inspirational.

    Bob Arum's going to push for investigations into the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Right now they aren't going to investigate the matter. I smell corruption.

    A crook investigating crooks. Sounds like boxing.

    Dana White wins again.

    That was fucking bullshit. 115-113, are you fucking serious? at most I would have given Bradley 3 rounds out of 12

    If boxing wasn't dead already this just blew its head off with a fucking shotgun. I'd rather somebody get their face caved in with another guys knee anyhow.

    This is why you should just go to the death. Judged/officiated sports will always be flawed.

    Do they not teach reading comprehension where you're from?

    The literal entire thread has been about this subject.

    I take about as much time to answer the question as you did to read the thread.
