Naazim: Only Marquez Can Be Mad at Pacquiao-Bradley

By Bill Emes

According to veteran trainer Naazim Richardson, only Juan Manuel Marquez has the right to be mad at Timothy Bradley's controversial split decision win over Manny Pacquiao in June. Marquez believes he was robbed against Pacquiao in three previous meetings.

While Naazim admits that Bradley did much better than most are giving the boxer credit for, Marquez still did a better job in all three of his fights with Pacquiao. On December 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Marquez will get his chance at revenge with a fourth bout against Pacquiao.

"Everybody is harsh on Tim Bradley. Everybody [is saying] 'they robbed Pacquiao, they robbed him.' Timmy worked hard and put himself in position to fight a fight, where at the end of the fight if you really turn the commentary off and watch the fight......and not say 'ooh and ahh' every time Pacquiao shakes his hair and say [to yourself] 'Pacquiao is doing something.' Just watch the fight. There are things that both of them can say they didn't do," Richardson said to

"If anybody had a right to be mad at the Pacquiao-Bradley decision, it was Marquez. Marquez should have been home kicking furniture over and saying 'I did better than that three times.' He is the only person who had a right to be mad. They probably thought about it themselves and said 'we have to let him fight [Pacquiao] again."

nazim knows bradley's win over pac is bogus but he doesn't wanna say it directly. he's trying to justify it by bringing up marquez.

Naazim, it's bad for boxing when the wrong guy won. It was clear as day that Manny beat Bradley. Even Marquez admits that those fights with Manny were all close but of course he is going to say he won…
