MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Welterweight Manny Pacquiao entered his post-fight press conference in good spirits despite losing a highly controversial split decision to Tim Bradley. The congressman was obviously bothered by the loss but feels confident that he will win the rematch. November 10th is reserved at the MGM for the second meeting between the two Top Rank promoted fighters.
Pacquiao said that even after coming out on the wrong side of a highly controversial decision that he has no problems fighting again in Las Vegas and that he prefers it.
"I want the fight in Las Vegas. I like fighting here at the MGM. They are very good to me," Pacquiao stated.
The Filipino had a befuddled look on his face when he was asked if he was ever hurt by any of Bradley's punches.
"To tell you the truth I don't remember him hurting me with one single punch. He hit me with some jabs but he didn't hurt me at all. Its amazing. It's unbelievable (the judges scores)," Pacquiao said as he still couldn't come to grips with the decision rendered by the judges.
Before leaving the dais Pacquiao urged the fans not to give up on boxing and said that the sport will bounce from the bad decision.
