    Teddy Atlas calling this decision "an injustice to the sport".

    Worst decision I've ever seen personally.

    Virtually all of the "experts" who saw the fight are saying that Manny got absolutely ROBBED.

    Manny will take care of business in the November rematch.

    People should just watch MMA instead of boxing for their controversial decisions. :)

    I'm no expert at boxing but I watched the fight and I thought Bradley possibly landed more punches in one, MAYBE two rounds.

    Pacquiao got ROBBED big time. I don't even see how the fight could of been scored 115-113 in favor of Pacquiao, it was not even THAT close, much less 113-115 in favor of Bradley.

    EVERYONE at the bar was screaming with outrage on the decision.

    If anything, it could be argued that the match was a draw, despite Pacquiao clearly out boxing him it lasted 12 rounds, and neither was knocked down or hurt at any point. But to say Bradly won the match is just rediculous.

    Another black eye for a fading sport.

    Didn't see the fight but every expert I've heard from says it wasn't even close. Have to see the replay
