Timothy Bradley Jr. earns stunning, controversial split-decision win over Manny Pacquiao

Jun 10th, 2012 | By | Category: Sports

Timothy Bradley and Manny Pacquiao put on an outstanding show, but it was the judges who will be the big story for the next week or so.

Pacquiao landed 94 more punches than Bradley according to CompuBox, but it was not enough as the judges stunningly awarded a split-decision win to Bradley, who lifted the World Boxing Organization welterweight title from Pacquiao with the victory.

“I thought I won the fight,” said Bradley, who said he hurt his ankle in the second round. “I didn’t think he was as good as everybody says he is. I didn’t feel a lot of his power.”

It was an excellent back-and-forth bout, but Pacquiao seemed to control it by landing more, landing at a higher percentage and landing the harder punches. 

Judges C.J. Ross and Duane Ford had it for Bradley, 115-113. Jerry Roth had it for Pacquiao, 115-113. Bradley won the final round on all three cards which pulled out the bout for him.     [Read More...]
