I've got Bradley on points. Who do you got?

Some people really dislike Manny Pacquiao or perhaps HBO's admiration of Manny because no one could make a logical argument Timothy Bradley won that fight. You don't win rounds for throwing punches, you win rounds for landing punches, something Bradley didn't do. I scored Pacquiao-JMM 3 a draw, but could've seen a case being made for either guy winning.

There is no case to be made. Pacquiao landed more punches, more power punches, connected with a higher percentage. He won the fight. ESPN had it 119-109. HBO had it 119-109. Every other media outlet had it scored either 119-109 or 118-110. I thought Bradley won the 2nd round and the 12th.

I, for one, never plan on watching boxing again. And I was looking forward to Mayweather's next fight, Manny's next fight, Ward vs Dawson, Khan vs Garcia, even Chavez vs Lee next weekend. But, I'm done.
