    My first thought was corruption, cause otherwise , it would be stunningly incompetent. But, Iunno, maybe it just was. At least I don't see enough reason for Arum&co to tweak the judges.

    Another Marquez rematch was hot after the last close match, Mayweather was turning around (after he saw the Marquez fight, I'm sure he reevaulated his chances). It's not like Bradley was the only possible up and coming challenger.

    I just don't see enough motive for Arum to have fixed the judges. Maybe it was from another source, who knows.

      Many upset friends on this decision. There is a petition, 15,000 signatures so far: http://www.change.org/petitions/the-...share_petition

      So the fan backlash is pretty huge IMHO.

          A petition, huh? Quick question: how many signatures do you need to take that belt off Bradley's waist?

            You didn't get my point.

            I know the fans are extremely outraged, it has happened numerous numerous times before this incident. I have NEVER seen pundits, execs, reporters, promoters, and opponents say it was BULLSHIT from a fan standpoint. These people are more worried about their ratings and money. To see these people flipping out is quite amazing.

            I mean you normally find at least one reporter, referee, coach, trainer, or sportscaster that can see it as correct. This is the first time I have seen a near unanimous disregard for the judges decision. I know somewhere someone has said it was right, besides the two idiot judges, but I haven't encountered that article.

            Bradleys' own Manager had it 8-4 for MP. The closest I have heard is 7-5. I mean this is why I stopped watching boxing along with 8 billion different titles.

            I'm wondering if boxing is actually truly scared. Boxing, minus a few huge fights, has been on the precipice IMO. This didn't help at all.

                It was on Cable here in Old London Town and I expected to see it as I subscribe to BoxNation but I soon realised it was separate. It was scheduled for 2AM-5AM but I gave it a miss as I knew I was off to a Grading.

                That said, here's Kevin Mitchell of The Guardian. I'd happily take his opinion.
