How was that a robbery? It was a close fight Ruslan gave up way too many rounds in the middle. i had Bradley winning by a point.

 

Ruslan really only won the first 2 rounds, the 6th round and the 12th round. 11th was close i gave it to ruslan and it's still bradley up by 1. The ref shouldve ruled that a knocked down in round 1 or 2 don't remember what round it was but even then that extra point would make it a tie and bradley keeps his belt.

I agree. That knockdown in the first round would have really made things interesting towards the end, but Bradley still would have walked away with the title. 

 

I hand it to that Russian kid though, has a lot of heart and just wouldn't stop till that final bell.

3 rounds should have been scored 10 to 8 to ruslan no doubt. ruslan should have won by 1st round ko. that was obviously a knockdown, if it was ruled that then the way tim bradley got up the fight would have been waived off. he got up and fell again. the rule states that if a fighter is knockdown and gets up then falls again the fight should be stopped immeadiatley.

 

But major respect to Bradley, what a damn warrior.

Doesn't matter.. It wasn't ruled a knocked down.. so the rule doesn't apply.. 

 

And no they don't have to be ruled 10-8 "no doubt".. You can but it doesn't have to be. If anything it would make more sense to keep it 10-9. Giving bradley credit for surviving that. He was out on his feet and fighting back.. why penalize him for that? He stayed on his feet should be 10-9. But lets give 3 rounds 10-8 to ruslan.. 

 

10-8

10-8

So wheres the robbery again?

everyone has different opinions bro, you express yours I express mines. I respect yours, but to me it could've at least been a split decision win for Bradley no unanimous.

when a boxer stumbles and the ropes keep him up it is supposed to be counted as a knockdown, going by the rules.

it should have been a draw minimum. the is no justice in awarding the fight to bradley. ruslan rocked him in 4 rounds out of 12 and the damage caused should have made them all 10-8 rounds. lets say bradley won all the other rounds (which he didn't he also clearly lost round 11) that puts them dead level at the end of the fight. judges keep unfairly favoring boxers over fighters.

 

you know more boxing than I do (No Sarcasm), and I know how sensitive all boxing fanatics get.

Missed this fight & somewhat purposely cause I definitely did not expect the kind of fight that it turned out being, moreso on Bradley's part. Very happy to hear they both were aggressive and it was a crowd-pleasing match. Gonna' have to catch it on ONDEMAND or just record it when it comes on again.

Awesome fight. And much more action than the UFC's main event. 

I too feel the Russian should have won.

"it should've been a draw minimum"

 

So now you concede that it was a "close fight" and not a "robbery"?

 

There is a huge difference. close fights can go either way 

Robbery? Look up Paul williams vs Lara, travis cloud vs Campillo, George Foreman vs briggs.

 

 the is no justice in awarding the fight to bradley. ruslan rocked him in 4 rounds out of 12 and the damage caused should have made them all 10-8 rounds. lets say bradley won all the other rounds (which he didn't he also clearly lost round 11) that puts them dead level at the end of the fight.

 

 So now whenever someone is hurt or "rocked" we should score it 10-8 even if they don't get Knocked down? That is retarted and it completely devaluates knockdowns.

 

judges keep unfairly favoring boxers over fighters.

 

Uh what?  :smh:

 

Yeah.. see Rios vs Abril.

Adrien Broner unhappy with $20 bills in his stacks of hundreds, proceeds to ripping them up and flushing them down the toilet boasting about it:

 

http://sports.yahoo....00203--box.html

 

"...I don't carry other bills. If it ain't Benjamin or Franklin or Benjamin Franklin...I ain't carrying that," Broner said. "Let me show you what I do to these little [expletives] right here. I don't keep these bills."

Tearing up federal currency is considered a felony as well.

Rios vs Alvarado 2 coming up this weekend. May be yet another candidate for fight of the year easily.
