was deArumized in order to pass on the "Belt of a Champion" to Tim Bradley: An observation
Anchor for Allvoices
A fighter is always at the mercy of his promoter who can make and unmake him. Yesterday's Pacquiao-Bradley Match marked the end of a promoter's loving care to Pacquiao. Promoterhas deArumized his long time Champion Fighter Pacquiao in favor of Bradley.
Pacquiao did his job to fight honorably only to be kicked out as a defeated champion. He fought very well and gave his remarkably heavy and painful punches on Bradley. Pacquiao and himself believed he won as Bradley did believe was beaten by Pacquiao.
The announcement that Bradley won surprized him so much. He was given the title belt with the belief he was beaten by Pacquiao. Out of delicadeza, Bradley must have returned the belt to Pacquiao as many of the spectators at the MGM felt and believed it was the right thing to do so. However, what victory to possess when the declared victorious could not believe and accept he is one? Anyway, Bradley must give the belt to Arum as the winner in the match.
Bradley's victory over Pacquiao is a psywar to condition that Pacquiao needs not to seek a match with Mayweather. How can Pacquiao have a fight against Mayweather if he was beaten by Bradley?
Bradley is used by Arum as a pawn to put away the idea of a Pacquiao-Mayweather Match. Arum simply did not want to put America in shame to allow victory for Pacquiao hence, Bradley won.
Yesterday's Pacquiao-Bradley Match was an event that showed to the whole world that Arum preferred the glory of an American fighter like Bradley over that of a non American boxer like Pacquiao.It was really a preservation of the American self-esteem. A Filipino fighter like Pacquiao must not conquer an American fighter like Bradley. It was a fight to showcase American superiority.
Upon announcement of the results, Pacquiao being a subordinate accepted his defeat in the highest degree of humility and gave his smiles to everyone of those who were at Grand MGM. He prayed as he usually does in victory or in defeat to thank God for all the guidance, protections and blessings.
Undoubtedly, Pacquiao felt deArumized in exchange of Bradley. God bless the one who prefers this countryman against anyone else.
