According to Top Rank interviewer and TV personality Crystina Poncher, promoter Bob Arum had a pretty strong opinion on tonight's shocking, extremely controversial win for Timothy Bradley over Manny Pacquiao:
Bob Arum says this is fucking nuts and that he has the fight 10-2 for Pacquiao.— Crystina Poncher (@CrystinaPoncher) June 10, 2012
The initial shock of what has happened tonight is wearing off. Personally, I do not believe this fight was particularly close, I think Manny Pacquiao won the bout, and I'm not happy with what has gone down here.
Arum had more to say at the press conference after the fight.
Here's some more from Bob:
Bob Arum just said he has never been so ashamed of the sport of boxing as he is tonight #PacBradley— XFINITY Sports (@XFINITYSports) June 10, 2012
Bob Arum: "What were these three judges looking at?"— XFINITY Sports (@XFINITYSports) June 10, 2012
@BobArum: I don't think anything was happening here except these people don't know how to score. They really don't. #PacBradley— Top Rank Boxing (@trboxing) June 10, 2012
I'm still kind of dumbfounded by this. We're going to have pretty much overnight coverage of the fallout of this sport-changing decision -- the change doesn't appear to be headed for the good side, either. Stick with us tonight and tomorrow and, well, probably for a few days after that before this even kind of starts dying down.
