News Flash: Bradley Jr. new Weltherweight Champion over split decision

Yes, my co-Filipino fans. Manny Pacquiao lost his fight earlier to Timothy Bradley Jr via split decision. 

Bradley still undefeated (29-o 12KO's wins) at his boxing career. The judges Duane Ford and C. J. Ross scored it for Bradley, 115-113. On Jerry Roth’s scorecard, it was 115-113 for Pacquiao
After not losing for the first 7 years, Manny comes short with his fight against the dessert storm but Manny promises to have his rematch this year (possible November 10,2012).

Pacquiao never put Bradley down, but hurt him in the early rounds and landed the harder and cleaner punches throughout the fight. Bradley fought well in spurts and tried desperately to take the fight to Pacquiao, and scored enough points with the judges to win the 147-pound title.

A sad ending for filipino boxing fans. But we know, Manny will reclaim his title soon.

When asked by HBO's Max Kellerman if he thought he won the fight, Manny Pacquiao said, "Absolutely." But he also stated, "It's part of the game. I accept that whole-heartedly. I did my best, but my best wasn't good enough."

Here's the final puch stat;

Manny -  Bradley

190 - 108 landed
493 - 390 thrown
39% - 28%

How could Manny lost with this kind of stat?

Ok, it's the JUDGES.
