MANILA, Philippines – After Manny Pacquiao’s shocking loss to Timothy Bradley, Bob Arum had choice words for the judges of the Pacquiao-Bradley fight. In the post-fight press conference, the Top Rank CEO says the judges “don’t know how to score.”
Arum read the punch stats aloud saying Pacquiao landed at least double the power punches, landed more jabs, and his connect ratio was much higher.
Several comments on Social Media point to Arum for cooking up this victory for Bradley, who is also under Top Rank promotions, but he dismisses the notions saying “the judges are selected by the fight commissioners in a closed meeting.”
Arum still congratulates Bradley but says he’s “never been as ashamed with the sport of boxing,” as he is tonight.
He also mentions the rematch clause on the fight’s contract but says it is up to Pacquiao if he wants to invoke it.
Timothy ‘Desert Storm’ Bradley keeps his unblemished record as he claims the WBO World Welterweight title. Like Arum, several celebrities on social media also voiced out their disappointment with the result of the fight. – Rappler.com
