Manny Pacquiao Fight

Was the Fix In?

6/10/2012 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0610_bradley_pacuaio_2Manny Pacquiao lost a VERY controversial split decision last night to Timothy Bradley, setting the stage for a rematch ... that seemingly was already in the works! Something smells fishy ...

The internet set on fire last night when Pacquiao was declared the loser ... even though anyone with two eyes (or even one) could see he won the fight easily. 

Our good friends over at TheBigLead.com point out ... Bradley tweeted a photo of a poster for the rematch back on May 29. Most experts agree that a decisive Manny victory would have meant no rematch. 

So we gotta ask ...

Fight should never ever have been made.


-Rivals the mistake of sending an out-of-shape Mike Tyson into the ring.


-Against a hungry contender.


-In Japan.


-Roy Jones Jr. said blame Mayweather.


-For not wanting any part of Manny.


Wondering how Floyd's feeling today.

Q    

Fixed--just like HOrse Racing and the Miss USA Pageant is now. Its all about the money. Let the Chicanos continue to actually pay to see and go to this fakery--real Americans have figured out its all about the Money now and not the Path to Glory, the Effort, Fairness and honest Judges. Fixed, fixed, fixed--just like "I'll have Another" was cheating and the Miss USA is pre determined, so is this Sports outcome. You want honest and real boxing? Watch Golden Gloves locally where you live--best kind of boxing left today. This Pay to View stuff? As phony as it comes.

If I may, I just want to add that the rematch date was already determined ahead of the the fight as when most champions are in a fight there's a rematch clause. Bradley was so confident he'd win that he announces the rematch himself. He just used the same poster and changed the graphics a little. Its all photoshop. The rematch was already in place in case of a Pacquiao loss.

Manny has not KO's an opponent in quite sometime. Perhaps the Judges were getting tired of these distance fights. Manny was not the Manny we all seen in the past. OH well, I'm sure Pacman has something to settle in November. The fool better Knock Him out or I'M GONNA KNOCK HIM OUT! - L.L

Whether he knocked out Bradley or not Pacquiao dominated this fight from the start to the end and this decision just proved how messed up boxing is and why it's taking a back seat to UFC. I doubt anyone will take a boxing match seriously after last night horrible display and people call wrestling fake.

Guess God wasn't on his side after all, despite all his anti-gay comments. When will religious nuts realize God's against haters.
