Yeah... Wald fight was boring....

Cotto beat up a FNF level fighter....

Crawford is being pushed so hard by HBO given the lack of talent that they have to show with GBP fighting only on Showtime...

Great boxing coming up in the coming weeks nonetheless....

I honestly hope that Marquez KO'ed Bradley.... he just comes off as a douchebag.

Bradley has always rubbed me in the wrong way.... and has become particularly douchebag like towards Marquez.

Unless Marquez gets old... I think he is just a better fighter than Bradley.... and if it becomes a war... Marquez will end it via KO.

The Thomas and Mack center is a dump.... I would be interested in seeing how many people go early given that it isn't in a casino.

If Bradley uses his legs well and invites Marquez to come forward, he may have a shot at this but I got this for Marquez winning this by KO in the latter rounds.

What happened? Was it a legit win? Were the scores truthful?

One stupid judge had Marquez winning. But the other two had it right.

Unlike the decisions he had against Pac and Prov, tonight's win was legit. Bradley out boxed Marquez and made him look slow. He used that jab perfectly and even managed to hurt Marquez on a couple of occasions. He tucked his chin in well, created distance and never let Marquez get in rhythm. Marquez couldn't counter and throw combinations because Bradley never let him get comfortable. Marquez basically looked his age tonight. I still can't believe Bradley managed to wobble him and almost knock him down, because Bradley doesn't hit hard whatsoever.

On top of that Marquez was crying about being robbed. :lol: Dude, was on top of the world after he KO'ed Pac, now he's going out like a sore loser. I think that last shot by Bradley knocked the common sense out of him.

Nacho and Marquez are such sore losing clowns. The fight was close, but it was pretty clear that Bradley edged him out.

Now Nacho is stating that they won't rematch Bradley because he doesn't make enough money. They had no problems with the financial aspects of the fight before they lost. Now they're ripping Bradley for not drawing enough. That's rich. I hope Marquez retires, I'm sick of him complaining like a b*tch after every loss. The word dignity and class doesn't exist in his vocabulary.

I read this on BLH.. Marquez has been really shafted at times when it comes to his losses. There were clear Ws that he has gotten over the years but didn't get the nod, and now they are just used to saying that any close fight was a victory.

I don't have a problem with Marquez thinking that he won. That his inner competitor coming out. But what I do have a problem with is him throwing the word "robbery" around a little too freely and disrespecting his opponents afterward. If you want to talk Robbery, Pacquiao verse Bradley was a real robbery. JCCJ last win was a robbery. Rios beating Abril was a robbery. Those are actual robberies. He wasn't robbed in the first 3 Pacquiao fights because those were all close as hell and could have gone either way. You could argue that he won, but you can't say that Marquez ran away with those fights because he didn't. And he definitely wasn't robbed against Bradley. Not even close.

The problem with Marquez is that he cries robbery too much. It's like the boy who cried wolf. At some point, people are going to stop taking you seriously. Right now, he just comes off as a sore losing punk. Nacho too. Now you have his idiot trainer threatening to sue Bradley claiming that he hurt his reputation on 24/7. Um, you hurt your reputation the minute you admitted to be a PED supplier. You hurt your reputation the minute you were filmed on camera injecting yourself and bragging about how you're able to beat drug tests. That whole entire team can just disappear forever. I really can't stand any of them.

I thought Pacquiao III was a robbery, the first 2 were close as hell...especially II.

This fight with Bradley wasn't a robbery, I thought Bradley won though you can make the case for Marquez 115-113 because there were a handful of rounds that I found tough to score but that's the most I'd give Marquez. Good win for Bradley, the best of his career.
