I rewatched the fight
I gave Bradley that first round, and then 9-12.
still only 5 rounds, but it wasnt the most dominant display that HBO and co would have you believe. Manny missed a lot of punches and Bradley caught him a few times. He scored well even if it wasnt hurting Manny.
Bradley's last 4 round strategy would have won him the fight with no controversy if he had that tactic from the start of countering.
Also the middle rounds, really after round 5, they were very close. I think Manny won, but they were close rounds.
Also, I watched without sound because I wanted no bias from the commentators.

For someone with a broken left foot and a badly sprained right foot, Bradley moved pretty well to avoid some of Manny's over top shots from the left.

Bradley did not win the last 4 rounds. He didn't win 9 or 11 imo.
And there's no way he was moving around that good with a broken foot.

thats ur view.
I think he did, altho i admit they were very close.
Really, outside of rounds 3-5, the fight was really close.
Great fight just watched it again HBO can sway you like I said, great fight and close fight depending on what you were looking for. Here is my card drum roll please.
ROUND 1: EVEN (could go either way Bradley won most the round but didnt really do much while Pac landed 3 punches in the final 15 seconds that could have won him the round.)
ROUND 2: BRADLEY (I thought he outworked Manny and landed some nice body shots close round though)
ROUND 3: PAC (nice clean punches)
ROUND 4: PAC (he missed most of his punches with that wild fury but landed a few major ones, Bradley hurt is foot)
ROUND 5: PAC ( DOMINATION)
ROUND 6: EVEN (Bradley won the first 2 minutes Pac won the last minute and landed the harder punches)
ROUND 7: PAC (Manny with another wild fury but landed a a few hard punches)
ROUND 8: BRADLEY ( weak round I thought he did the most too win it)
ROUND 9: PAC ( good round won it)
ROUND 10 BRADLEY(he had the jab going)
ROUND 11 EVEN (Bradley looked great with the jab and body shots, Pac came on strong at the end with some nice clean hard punches)
ROUND 12 BRADLEY (did the most too win it)
I had Pac winning 5 rounds too 4, round 1, 6, 11 was close if you give those 3 rounds too Bradley then it equals the 115-113 BRADLEY. Pac is the champ so thats hard pressing too do so I think PAC won the fight but it was much closer than it seemed. It was all PAC PAC PAC and Bradley didn't do nothing if you listen too the Lampley and company.

If I was too score those even rounds I had I would say 115-113 PAC, giving him 2 and Bradley 1. I watched the rd 6-12 last night and only gave Bradley the 10th but rewatching it he won 3 of the rounds and maybe 4.

Floyd Sr: "judges in the Pacquiao/Bradley fight should find a new job."
The foot injury does a good job to rewrite history by obscuring the fact that Bradley was wobbled badly and it wasn't all a hurt ankle. He was hurt several times in the fight and never damaged Pac at all. His defensive head movement wasn't working, look closely, manny was landing lost every time he tried it and he often ended up a little woozy. The first round want even... It was even until manny landed three hard punches, which means that it was no longer even. Three hard punches is significant, especially when all three stop your opponent cold and send him back peddling.
And I also think Manny won, my point is that fight was very effing close.
Idk, I think Manny won that fight but it was a VERY close fight. Even during the Manny slobbering, Emmanuel Steward pointed out that Manny's over hand left was not connecting anymore after the earlier rounds.
And like I always tell people about Roach fighters, Bradley started closing the ring off and closing on Manny and forcing the fight to be an inside fight. Roach fighters cannot fight on the inside.
I dont believe Bradley hurt Manny much, but he was scoring points which is what its all about.

Watched the fight again. In no universe did Bradley even come close to being close to winning. And just in case you think I'm biased, I like Bradley and think the Pac Man would lose to Floyd.
Apparently a crazy amount of late money on Bradley in Vegas. Some folks knew something was up. Hell, even HBO was questioning the judges BEFORE the fight started.
They'll make a good documentary out of this someday.

After a second view the fight was close I had Manny winning 115-113 BUT there were 3 rounds that could go either way IMO so that score could be very well reversed.
