To me, from his statement, it seems pretty clear that Bradley believes Pacquiao is a superior fighter to him, and by extension it would mean he believes he lost the fight against him.
Thats how everyone is treating it. What can bradely do if nobody agrees with him. He has already stated he thought he won and would gladly fight Pac again to prove it but he needs a good exposure fight to get him back out there. I think it is more like stooping low letting go of some of that pride to beg for a fight than admitting he lost.
