Question Did Manny Get Robbed??

I only saw a portion of the fight bcuz I had previous things to tend to. Then I got a text from my Bro, check ESPN/Sportcenter. WTF??!!

I'm not a gambling man but what were the Vegas odds? Those who bet on Bradley are some lucky SOB's.

Bob Arum is cashing in bigtime!! The date for the rematch had already been predetermined waaaaaay ahead of time. So if Manny would've won Saturday's fight then the rematch wouldn't have generated a ton of money bcuz everyone would just assume that Manny would win again and just tune out. BUT NOW...with the loss/robbery hanging over him, Manny is sure to put a beat down/KO on Bradley and keep it out of the judges hands. Bob Arum is betting on this and betting on everybody and their mothers to order the rematch so he can cash out yet again.

The fix was in from the start. He acts stunned/shocked/surprised by Saturday's outcome but I think he had his greedy paws all over this.

I'm not gonna order that fight. Fawk boxing. The only fight I will ever pay for again will be Floyd vs. Manny... if that sh!t ever happens.

I feel that Bob Arum, the judges of that fight, and any executives in boxing have ruined the sport. I cant blame Bradley. He was paid to fight Manny, which he did. Because of this, I can see that UFC will probably have even more viewers.

Everyone knows that "Vegas" is involved some way or another with all sporting events, but this one was just so obvious. It was a very sad day for the sport of boxing.
