With the Pacquiao vs Bradley hoopla just starting to die down a bit (it's not over by a long shot), here's a full look back at all the coverage from BLH on one of the most controversial major fights in memory.
After the jump, we look back on all the post-fight coverage, stories, and debates. If you missed anything, it's in there.
- Manny Pacquiao and boxing fans and media were stunned when Timothy Bradley was announced as the winner of Saturday's main event by split decision.
- Jorge Arce and Jesus Rojas went to a no-contest early in the second round.
- Mike Jones and Randall Bailey bored fans to tears over nine rounds, before Bailey put Jones down with a right hand in the 10th round, and then exploded with a brutal uppercut KO in the 11th.
- Guillermo Rigondeaux badly outclassed Teon Kennedy, scoring five knockdowns in five rounds before the referee mercifully stopped the action.
- Before the PPV, Mikael Zewski, Jesse Hart, Andrew Ruiz, and Ernie Sanchez all scored wins in an entertaining four-pack of preliminary bouts.
- We named the real winners and losers from the event, including Floyd Mayweather (winner) and Juan Manuel Marquez (loser). The UFC did not benefit in any way, contrary to popular (?) belief.
- Luke Thomas discussed the fight and the shocking result for SBN Studios.
- Video highlights of Pacquiao vs Bradley.
Pacquiao vs Bradley Fallout
- Promoter Bob Arum said he was "ashamed" of the sport after the fight, and called the decision "fucking nuts."
- A photo of the judges' scorecards kicked up more debate, particularly two of three judges (Duane Ford and C.J. Ross, who gave the fight to Bradley) scoring a seemingly dominant Pacquiao round in the fifth to Bradley.
- Freddie Roach thought Manny won 10 of 12 rounds.
- Dan Rafael discussed the robbery and the rematch on SportsCenter.
- Pacquiao couldn't really find the words immediately after the fight, when interviewed by Bernardo Osuna of ESPN.
- Teddy Atlas drew a ton of attention -- and for once, pretty much no criticism -- for his outspoken thoughts about the fight, corruption, and incompetence in the sport of boxing.
- Bob Arum said that even though the rematch would make him a lot of money, he was concerned about the sport's credibility.
- Bradley's manager Cameron Dunkin lashed out at Arum, who said that Dunkin had scored the fight for Pacquiao.
- Juan Manuel Marquez scored it for Manny.
- Judge Duane Ford had the stones to speak publicly on the fight, at least, and defended his scorecard. Maybe no one agreed, but at least he didn't hide.
- Bradley reportedly suffered a twisted ankle and a fracture in his foot.
- Bradley believes after watching the tape of the fight that the judges got it right, and there should be no controversy.
Rematch? Maybe, Maybe Not (Probably)
- Manny said he wanted the rematch, and wanted it in Vegas again.
- Is there interest in a rematch? Early poll results say no, and Arum says ticket brokers are already concerned that the fight won't sell.
- Arum calls for Nevada attorney general to investigate the fight's outcome, and says he won't sign a rematch until that's done.
- Juan Manuel Marquez said he expects the November rematch to happen, and that he'd be ready to face the winner after that.
