Recently, Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley squared off in the boxing ring. The two fought well through the match, but the defending champion lost a split decision by a hair. Such a result is already proving controversial because many thought Pacquiao dominated Bradley for much of the bout. Obviously, the judges saw everything differently, but it appears as though the two will be getting a rematch in the near future. Everything can be settled at that time.
This is Pacquiao’s first loss in quite some time though. Before the match, Bradley confessed his confidence that he could beat the defending champion. That prophesy came to fruition somewhat, but this decision will not sit well with most boxing fans and analysts until a fight occurs with a real decision. Instances of the judges and fans not agreeing with a match are fairly common though. Still, the next Pacquiao versus Bradley match is bound to be a huge draw.
