My score was 118 to 110 -- 10 rounds to two for Da Manny. Holla!

jzzy says:

Grueling fight. Bradley lost his head and threw his game plan out the window. Rather than boxing patiently like the Marquez fight, he was loading
up with amateurish haymakers that missed and he tired early. Pacquioa showed his veteran experience by remaining calm and coming on in the middle and late rounds. Bradley was taken to school again, he lost the mental fight by getting too emotional and losing control. Bradley took a
big step back in this fight. Of course, Pacman isn't the same, he's a mellow 35 with alot of miles on the odometer, he needs to conserve energy
and open up in spots and that's what he did, fighting in a controlled manner. Hopefully, Pacman will get a rematch with Marquez.

Radam G says:

Mile High Mike will likely finish off Marquez. So I doubt another fight. Holla!

The Shadow says:

8-4 Pacquiao. Bradley is the real deal. Bald head, head butts and everything. Yeah, I double-entendred. Sue me.

No, for real, Bradley is the truth.

"..,Bradley is the truth of what? Holla!

the Roast says:

Sounds like it was a good fight but not a great fight. No need for a third. I'm glad Manny won as the judges should have had him winning the first fight. I'm holding out hope for Manny vs Floyd end of this year or 2015.

The Shadow says:

Hahaha, I see what you did there...

He's the truth as in he's the real deal.

Doubtful, Roast.

As I prophesied, they are looking to LOCK HIM UP for good. And it looks like they will.

From a sporting perspective, he clearly, unquestionably has better options -- speak up for good fights, no hypocrisy now! (Not you, generally speaking) -- on the other side.

However, the smart business move would be to stay put, be the head honcho, top dog on HBO while cashing in on rematches and mismatches.

I want to see it as much as anyone else but I'm not oblivious to the behind-the-scenes dealings, either. Expect to see him sign up and have Arum continue to blame Floyd, which is not the morally right thing to do, nor the right thing to do for "the sport" but it's business. I get it.

On a different note, I don't see how people are not on to Arum's bullsh*t by now.

He just disrespected the people he now claims to want to do business with while trying to orchestrate a public boycot of their event. Has he been hanging out with Chavez Jr.?!

Non-savvy business folks and casual followers will see the quotes and take him at face value. In reality, he's trying his absolute best to create a divide between the promoters, networks, sponsors and now the casinos.

He's burned so many bridges by now Todd DuBoef has to mend fences for him. He doesn't deal with Cotto's lawyer because he hates him. Todd to the rescue. Doesn't deal with the MGM because he hates them. Todd to the rescue.

Again, I'm just calling it like it is. I respect Bob Arum a great deal. I would love to pick his brains or have a guy like that as a mentor.

But for the life of me, I can't see why people take anything he says publicly regarding this matter seriously anymore.

He's playing people and he's good at it.

Da Bobfather is like boksing has always been. Varies party just can't do business. And you how to get mediators.

Fans, fanboys and he fluzzies of the time, thought the same stuff about promoter Tex Rickard that many outsides think about the Bobfather. As Money May -- because he doesn't want any part of Da Manny -- is agitating nowadays about da Bobfather, James Jeffries did the same about Rickard. Because Rickard wanted him to fight "Unforgivable Blackness" Jack Johnson. Jeffries didn't, and was making the same excuses over a hundred year later that Money May is doing now.

And as history knows, Jeffries retired and then came back got his arse set on fire by "UN" JJ.

As times goes by, you have the same old syet, just different players. [T$$ arch-master pugilistic investigative Scribe T Springs, holla!]

Floyd Kenducky Chicken and company oughta quit trying to blame an old Jew.

When this old Jew was early middle age, he promoted a young GOAT Ali that bullsyeters and knuckleheads try to halt.

Da Bobfather is not going to graveyard T-Brad's career. Don't be shocked to see T-Brad and Bam Bam Rios dance in a show similar to what Paulie M and Duper Zab did for Showtime. A T-Brad-Bam Bam Rios Bout would disgrace the rating of Showtime's bungle [$¡¢] with Paulie M-Duper Zab. Holla!

No one is blaming anything. What he says speaks for itself. While they find it incredibly disrespectful, they also find it quite amusing.

Let's say Floyd trembles by the mere mention of Manny's name.

Even so, promotions, as Kelsey Mac so eloquently put it in his wicked piece, are independent ventures. Co-promotions are joint ventures.

If you're looking to do business with a company, the last thing you do is slander them in public with the intent to sabotage their business. That's preposterous.

Every time they do business, or any promoters do business on one of these joint ventures, they lick each other's a$$ in public. You're business partners now.

(Which is another reason Duva is whoring for ink -- she knows the JV ship has sailed so now she's slandering Stevenson while schmoozing for HBO. It's a fact.)

As for ratings, they're nice discussion topics but are ultimately irrelevant.

For one, it's premium cable. Their business model is subscribers, not advertising. Ratings are used to determine whether subscribers responded favorably.

Two, even if we're talking ratings, the overall figure won't matter. Tim Bradley-Rios may draw a higher number than Zab and Paulie, but the overall number is insignificant. It's about "share" -- what percentage of the available audience tuned in.

A 1 million viewers fight for SHO is about the equivalent of 1.27 million viewers for HBO. Gimme five b/c that's no jive!

All that crap Duva is talking about stars? Well, what he just did on HBO is the equivalent of 858k viewers on SHO. Hardly the stuff of legends...

That would be a decent fight, though! And now that Bradley is self-managed (for now), I'm sure Cameron Dunkin Donuts will be glad to let it happen.

As always, I enjoy your "blasts from the pasts" history lessons. Your knowledge of boxing history is second to none.
