Fans on the Pacquiao title defense fiasco were shocked over the incredible result. How could have Bradley ever won? Pacquiao landed superior solid power punches; 34% of his punches compared to 19% for Bradley and on unofficial scorecards, he has convincingly taken 8 rounds.
After Bradley’s proclamation, commentators overheard on ABS-CBN TV special coverage blurted out shock:
“This is unbelievable!”
“A shocking upset!”
“Crowd in total amazement!”
On line enthusiasts share their sentiments to label it: the death of boxing credibility. Outrage, twitter protests and disappointments are trending on line. There has been quite some noise on the controversy as evidently fans decried that stunning upset as malicious cookery. One thing that should have defied it though if ever there was ill-politics involved should have been a k.o which Manny’s seems to have lost.
Miley Ray Cyrus on twitter:
“this just proves that everything boils down to politics. ugh. why cant people just fight fair?! let the WINNERS win!”
“Yo manny! you just gotta remember what my daddy @billyraycyrus always told me "when you knock em out, you dont need no judge!"
This post-fight activity was seconded solidly by Filipino fans. It fused some to the thought that Manny was indeed robbed. Mommy Dionisia, Manny’s mother fainted bec of the loss but laughed at the loss though afterwards and requested for a re-match.
Analysts share the collective sentiments with the enraged fans, how could Bradley have ever won?
All this heated on line bustle has Bradley summing it up though: (excerpted from yahoo experts article by Kevin Iole) "Can you believe that?" promoter said. "I had it 10-2! After I got into the ring after the fight, I went over to Bradley and said 'You did very well.' He said, 'I tried hard, but I couldn't beat the guy.' This is crazy. You talk about killing boxing? All three scorecards you throw out."
He (Bradley) said, 'I tried hard, but I couldn't beat the guy.'
Pacquiao: "I respect the decision, but 100% I believe I won the fight,"
