Marquez: Bradley Was Using His Head, No Help From Ref

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez is confident he won at least seven of his twelve rounds against Timothy Bradley last Saturday night at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Two judges had it 116-112 and 115-113 for Bradley, and the third scored 115-113 for Marquez.

Before Saturday's fight even took place, Marquez and his trainer Nacho Beristain made allegations that Bradley would use his head as a weapon in fights. Within the first two rounds, Marquez claims Bradley butted him four times and the referee did not intervene.

"I felt I won rounds one, three and four clearly, and then I think I won from the ninth to the last round. Even though he finally hit me back [at the end of the last round], I still think I won the round. We have to sit down and watch the fight calmly, and try to analyze it and then we will give our score to see [how it compares to] the judges. I don't know if [the referee] was watching out for Bradley's head, but in the first and second rounds Bradley gave me at least four headbutts and the referee did not see them or he would not assist me as I requested him to do in the dressing room," Marquez said.

Granted Bradley likely used his head a few times but I didnt see all that much. Marquez is just making himself look bad.

[QUOTE=RawDawgHasSpokn;13847375]Marquez has the right to complain but bad advice from his corner is to blame for this. They had him thinking he was winning at a point that was crucial in the fight and he wasn't. As for the headbutts;…
