I completely agree.

Oh yea I bet you were one of many who gave tim credit for beating the crap out of pac's gloves with " keep away jabs ".

Of course fighters should be given credit defense..... If they comeback with something - A Counter!!

I have to disagree. Floyd took the first 4 rounds clearly, and the 5th was competitive with Cotto trapping Floyd on the ropes, but Cotto got too much credit for simply just having Floyd on the ropes. Floyd out fought Cotto the 5th and clearly landed the cleaner and more telling punches that round. The 6th round was a clear Cotto round, as the 7th was a clear Floyd round, where as the 8th was again a Cotto round. That fight was 6-2 going into the 9th. You could possibly give Cotto the 9th, it was a really close round where both had their moments. And Floyd took the last 3 rounds clearly. 118-110/117-111 Floyd.

If anything the announcers made that fight seem closer than it was. Remember Jim Lampley saying Floyd had lost 4 rounds in a row and that the fight could be up int he air going into the last round, that was pure bull s**t. Cotto won 2-3 rounds, 4 at the very most.

Bradley won 2-3 rounds, 4 at the most as well. But that fight looked different because Pac faded late in the fight, and let Bradley back in the fight sort of, amking it closer than it should have been. Bradley took round 1, and round 2 was pretty competitive but Pac landed the cleaner and effective punches. Pac took rounds 3-8, though the 7th was closer than HBO or Pac fans are making it out to be, especially rewatching it. The 9th was close,c ould have gone either way, both had their moments. Round 10 was clearly Bradley, round 11 was close and again cold have gone either way, and round 12 was Bradley to me. 117-111 Pac is what I had it. Could see 118-110 if you gave every close round to Pac or 116-112 if you gave every close round to Bradley.

Boxing as a sport has become an "offensive" sport only.
did you just say you get 0 points for defense???really???

You being serious?

Manny landed all but 1 effective punch on a one legged Bradley.

You all cry about how Bradley didn't land much but it was the same for Pac.

I'm not gonna argue by how much Floyd & Pacman won by. I do believe they both won close competitive fights. I just see Floyd fans & Pacman fans doing identical things. Both fanbases act like their man dominated the fights, which in my opinion they did not.
