MANNY PACQUIAO lost??? Guys! Filipinos! Take it easy! Boxing and American Idol is just like an brand. It's simply marketing really. And we as the audience is being manipulated into believing the drama.
These have been going on since the beginning of time. It's all planned, just like any other show or soap opera. Bradley needs to be known and Manny Pacquiao just happens to be the best advertising vehicle for him. And of course, the best marketing strategy is to create a "scandal". And that's what the split decision is for.
Sad to say, Manny, Jessica and other figures who place themselves in these kinds of shows fall prey to the plans of producers, show writers and marketing. But if they didn't, we won't have the entertainment we so look forward to watching.
Manny is a certified great actor and Bradley's career launch is a success! It's just great marketing!!! Hahaha!
Anyways, here's a post for you to have an idea of how the fight "show" went down. Toink! :o)
The boxing world has been turned upside down. Timothy Bradley defeated Manny Pacquiao tonight via incredibly controversial split decision on scores of 115-113 across the board, staying undefeated, ending Manny Pacquiao's amazing win streak, and winning the WBO welterweight title.
Bradley (29-0, 12 KO) did close the fight pretty well, and didn't fight poorly. But he appeared to many of us to be outgunned and overpowered in the fight.
