Arum: Marquez May Have Won if Held in The East

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum believes that if the WBO welterweight title fight in which Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley  beat Juan Manuel Marquez by a twelve round split decision was held in the Eastern United States, Marquez would have won by seven rounds to five.

In a conversation with BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard about the griping of Marquez and trainer “Nacho” Beristain about the decision, Arum said that Marquez may be losing fans because of his griping but that “when Mexicans score a fight and in the US East they would have scored the fight for Marquez because he landed the more telling blows and was continuously the aggressor.”

In the West Arum said “Bradley would have won because he landed more punches.”

Arum explained the resentment over the decision by the predominantly Mexican crowd at the Thomas and Mack Center last Saturday explaining that - “the Mexicans are brought up to vote for aggression and power punching. There is no question on that score Marquez won 7 rounds. But in Nevada and other places in the US East they don’t score that way and I credited him  (Bradley) winning  7 rounds to 5. It  depends on what place the fight is held.”

Despite the controversy about the decision Arum told us “It was a terrific fight,  great atmosphere. The staging was good so everybody here loved it and we did very well on pay per view” although no numbers have yet been disclosed

Bradley deserves all the mistreatment that Arum gives him. He left Shaw for Arum knowing what he was getting into. This is the result.
