The world of boxing and its avid fans were stunned at the split decision made from the Timothy Bradley and Manny Pacquiao fight on the MGM Las Vegas tonight. "Pacman" lost his WBO title to Bradley after a highly controversial win. Fans, including famous celebrities take it on Twitter to post their dismay.
Despite landing 94 more punches, the well-loved Filipino boxer loses his title for the first time in seven years after two judges scored in favor of the American boxer. As the decision was announced, the audience booed all together.
Nearly everybody on the media row, including HBO's Harold Lederman has scored in favor of Pacquiao, but apparently it was different from the judge's ringside. Pacquiao landed 190 punches in comparison to Bradley who only did 108.
"I have the best eye doctor, if the judges go to LA, I will pay for their eye exam," Bob Arum, Top Rank's promoter said. "I've never been ashamed to be part of boxing as I am tonight."
"We'll make a lot of money on the rematch, but this is nuts. People don't even know what they're watching. They're trying to kill boxing," Arum added.
"The fight is good. He's very strong, he moved around, he's undefeated. But I believe I won the fight. He is fighting toe-to-toe but he's running around. Most of his punches only hit my arms." Pacquaio said when interviewed by Mario Lopez. He also confirmed that he will be up for a rematch later this year.
Even Floyd Mayweather Sr., father of Manny's biggest rival has agreed that Pacquiao should have won the fight. While the heated rants and protests are swirling around, see famous celebrities as they bring their rage on Twitter.
