Timothy Bradley Jr. earns stunning, controversial split-decision win over Manny PacquiaoJun 10th, 2012 | By AJ Anderson | Category: Sports
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...]
