Pretty much kills any hope of Pac/Floyd.

Knowing Floyd, he's going to start negotiations at 75/25 split smh

By Wednesday morning, nobody but the hardcore boxing fans will care.

I can't ever remember hearing of a bad decision being overturned. There have been robberies before on this scale, not a one has been overturned.

No, we've seen worse robberies.

Paul Williams fight versus Erislandy Lara was worse last year.

And if Manny cant have his promoter on his side, why should Floyd show sympathy?

DLH was a bigger star than Manny in his day, and he tried and failed to get his 2nd fight with Mosley overturned.

I don't think Floyd should show sympathy. If it were Floyd on the end of a similar decision, Arum & his people wouldn't either.

I'm just stating the reality of the situation.

I actually think this is worse than Lara/Williams because it involved the money guy getting screwed. In that fight, Paul was the name, so you half expect a decision to go his way. Can't remember the last time a money guy got worked over like tonight.

he lost to Marquez and they doing this to avoid Floyd. Cool. Just glad you all see this now. Arum is the worst.

I don't know if it was said here, but I agree with the person who said Arum wants to make a bunch of money off a rematch (which Pacquiao will obviously win), and then make a bunch of money with Pacquaio/Floyd. If you're saying that they're scared to fight Floyd, I don't understand why you would lose to avoid him. Isn't the whole point of being scared is that you're afraid to lose?

So even inside a jail cell, Floyd Mayweather wins.

You thought he was driving a hard bargain before? Say goodbye to a 50/50 split now. Even if Pac bludgeons Bradley to bits in November.

Enlightening. The responses here kinda highlight who has scruples here and who doesn't ,not that it matters, but I'll be taking notes.

Manny can take a loss, especially one like this where he is the sympathetic figure, and not lose much prestige to the eyes of the casual boxing fan and public.

Arum wants to cake off that rematch obviously, and keep the money completely in house for a big pay day.

Taking an L to Floyd and Manny loses all that prestige he had before.

If this was Pro-wrestling, Arum would be re-uniting with Floyd, and they'd announce to everyone it was a setup the whole time!

I had absolutely no intention of watching this fight again before the decision was read. Now I'll be going back over the fight a few more times, attempting to see just what the hell the judges saw.

If you have twitter, follow @RealRogerMay Floyd's Uncle and boxing trainer. Dude is on fire tonight. Some of his tweets are borderline sketchy, but the rest are hilarious.

Arum states that Bradley said, "I did my best but I just couldn't beat the guy."

Yes it was. That was probably one of the worst decisions I've ever seen in sports.
