The most anticipated boxing match of the year left audiences stunned and upset, many of them claiming that the fight was fixed. In last night’s fight, Timothy Bradley defeated Manny Pacquiao by a split decision.

Pacquiao landed 253 punches to 159 for Bradley.

The Associated Press thought Pacquiao would win 117-111. But Bradley was really named the winner, with the game ending in a score of 115-113. The two judges who named the winner were Duane Ford and C.J. Ross.

“I’ve never been as ashamed of the sport of boxing as I am tonight,” said Bob Arum, who promoted both fighters, soon after the outcome was announced. “I went over to Bradley before the decision and he said, ‘I tried hard but I couldn’t beat the guy.'”

The fight is even more suspicious when the public found out that Bradley had printed out posters for a November 10 rematch prior to the fight. The rematch would only have occurred if Bradley defeated Pacquiao in last night’s fight.

Many fans think that the fight was fixed for a Bradley victory so that there will be another big pay-per-view buy in five months.

“I’ll make a lot of money off the rematch, but this was outrageous,” Arum said.
