Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

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:


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:


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.
