Re: Pacquiao a victim of Mafia
Okay I'm going to clear a few cobwebs around here.
First off, Bradley is in NO WAY, NOT IN HELL NOT EVER, more marketable than Manny. Manny is a Hall of Fame Boxer, a superstar, a legend in the sport, up there with Ali and the others. I'm not exaggerating, because he's larger than life in the boxing world.
Second, the Marquez fight cannot be called a robbery. The Marquez fight could have gone either way because it was a close fight, this fight against Bradley WASN'T. Bradley was doing his jabs all night, hitting Manny's arms, while he was eating straight lefts all night. Manny did better here than he did against Marquez.
Third, the prevailing notion amongst boxing circles is that Bob Arum fixed the fight. Why? It's because Bradley and Manny are both Top Rank fighters. A rematch would make him earn another 10 million greens. Oscar De La Hoya even tweeted that he and Manny should meet up in a golf game and talk some business.
With that said, I had 8-3 in my card in favor of Pacquiao.
