Pacquiao’s defeat debacle over Bradley a week ago: A commentary
Anchor for Allvoices
Pacquiao’s defeat in the recent match against Bradley has definitely thrown the task of “re-judging” to fans, pay per view customers, general boxing enthusiasts and spectators. They share common ground that the Filipino pound for pound fighter won the fight.
Despite of that, Pacquiao humbly accepted the judges’ decision that gave the favor to Bradley. However, he said, “I believe 100% I won.” The Champion did not abandon Pacquiao.
Bradley in turn and almost in disbelief said had to check the tape to see if he won the fight or not. The greatest irony in his words was that the winner himself did not know he won the fight. Nonetheless, he confessed that he did not beat the man. This is to suggest he lacks the confidence of a champion.
Over a week ago, Pacquiao lost one of his belts but still retains 7 of them. Top Rank promotercontinues to shop for solution to the humiliating split decision that proclaimed Bradlley as victor of the match. Probably, search for solution to the controversy must now come to an end because it is deciphered as cosmetics to justify a rematch in order to rake in more revenues and profits for staketakers. Just let it be settled that the judges not Bradley have beaten Pacquaio.
Nevertheless, the winner has been determined. Spectators, enthusiasts, boxing commentators, they be fans or not all over the world are all in one to believe Pacquiao won the fight.
A Champion is always in the minds and hearts of the people. Pacquiao is the people's Champion.
Indeed, it is very interesting and consoling to have lost but in totally, everyone still believes Pacquiao as the World’s Champion. Manny still, you are the Champion. Mabuhay ka! Ikaw pa rin ang Kampeon sa mundo.
