Hence, FMJr can weather political storms that Paquaio obviously cannot. FMJr chooses not to fight, he doesn't have allegiances to maintain. Paquaio's career is built upon allegiances.
Bottom line, someone else called for that ridiculous decision last night. That wasn't judges' prerogative. That was someone getting to the judges. Who would want to do that and why?
Keep in mind that Bob Arum promotes both Pacquaio and Bradley. One judge was for Paq. One judge was for Bradley and the third was for whomever the note in the moneyed envelope told him to be for. See what I'm sayin'?
Shit - it could be backlash against Bob Arum, who is such a prick, even HBO regrets having to deal with him. Arum has a prize jewel in Pacquaio and he knows it and deals for fights expecting everyone to cross the palm and kiss his ass. There's no straight business with Arum. Last night was business on a level that has nothing to do with the craft of boxing.
There's only one reason someone would set Pacquaio up to lose, and that's if it satisfied the interests of someone who isn't Bob Arum.
