Pacman decisions Bradley in rematch

Pacquiao vs Bradley 2

By Emmanuel Josue |

Boxing icon and future hall of famer Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao summoned his vaunted speed and power to defeat Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley via unanimous decision in their rematch Saturday night before 15,000 fans at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The three judges at ringside saw it 116-112, 116-112 and 118-110 all in favor of Pacman.

Pacquiao avenged his controversial loss to Bradley in 2012 in which two judges gave the American an undeserved victory with 115-113 score for Bradley. Only one judge favored Pacquiao in what was considered an infamy in boxing during the first bout between the two champions.

This time, Pacman made sure the judges will see the volume and quality of his punches. He dominated Bradley from rounds six and up and clearly outpunched and outwitted the reigning champ.

Bradley surprised Pacman in the first round as he moved to be the more aggressive and hungrier fighter connecting with looping rights to pressure Pacquiao early on.

Pacquiao bounced back in the second and third rounds and started to connect left and right combinations as Bradley continued to engage and come looking for a knock out. Pacquiao counterpunched effectively on the pressure put on by Bradley.

Sensing Pacquiao is starting to throw effective counterpunches, Bradley used crisps shots to the body to slow down Pacquiao and he was able to sneak a right overhand blow which momentarily stunned Pacquiao. Bradley was however, not able to capitalize on this as Pacquiao moved in and out and blocked Bradley’s charges with his gloves.

In the fifth round, both fighters continued to exchange pressing blows. Bradley was not backing down on Pacquiao. Near the end of the round, Pacquiao connected a combinations to steal the round.

Bradley started to slow down in the sixth and Pacquiao, pinned Bradley against the ropes most of the time, and connected more flurry punches that wobbled the American. Bradley pretended that he was not hurt and even taunted Pacquaio to come in so that he can sneak in a whooping right but Pacquiao just faked in, used volume punches and forced Bradley to throw wild counters and punch in the air.

Reeling from Pacman’s flurries and hard lefts, Bradley resorted to show boating in the ensuing rounds but this did not help him in the scorecards. Pacquiao continued to connect with vicious hard lefts which nearly downed Bradley in the 9th and 10th rounds if not for the ropes which Bradley leaned on.

Bradley tried to recover lost grounds in the 11th round and connected some good shots on Pacquiao’s head. Though Bradley stole this round, Pacquiao was still way ahead on points going into the last round.

Pacquiao remained aggressive in the last round and connected more telling blows against the fading Bradley. Bradley accidentally head butted Pacquiao in the last 18 seconds of the round. It resulted into a deep cut on Pacquiao’s left eyebrow. The last round was clearly Pacquiao’s round.

“I thank God that I was able to win this one. It was not easy, Bradley is a tough fighter and he was throwing more punches than he did in our first fight. I felt his punch when he hit me in my chin in the fourth round,” Pacquiao commented after his victory.

“Paquiao is the better fighter tonight. I have my hats off to him and his corner. I lost to one of the best fighters in the world.” says Bradley in accepting his defeat.

Pacquiao’s hall of fame trainer Freddie Roach thought that his ward was a little sloppy in the fight but he felt Pacman listened to his instructions and adjusted well in second half of the bout.
With the victory, Pacquiao’s record now stands at 56-5-2 while Bradley is 31-1-0 and absorbed his first career loss.

Donald Sterling remains a total scumbag, and the NBA needs to deal with it

Donald Sterling is a total scumbag. He has a history of particularly grotesque and federally prosecuted racism and a list of sexual harassment accusers. He's a grandstanding idiot without a modicum of self-awareness. He's the type of dumbass who would hold a Black History Month celebration in March, and the type of racist moron who would "celebrate Black History" by giving 1,000 game tickets to poor kids, because the brainless hockey puck equates Black people with poor people, because he is a complete cretin.

NBA playoffs in progress, can the Heat threepeat?

A bad season for the ailing Texans

After the Houston Texans eked out a 2-0 start, it was all disaster for the once amazing and promising football team. It suffered its worst franchise record of 14 straight losses and ended up fourth in the AFC South in a season-ending 2-14 win-loss card.

So frustrating was how the team performed that in week 14 and with a loss to the cellar dweller Jacksonville Jaguars, Texans team owner Bob Mcnair handed Head coach Gary Kubiak his pink slip. Mcnair named Defensive coach Wade Philipps as interim coach and later hired former Penn State head coach Bill O' Brien as the team's third head coach.

In the season opener, the Texans won against the San Diego Chargers, 31-28 in a come-from-behind fashion. Down 3 touchdowns (21-points) in the third quarter, the Texans sparked a 24-0 run in the closing minutes of the third quarter and the rest of the fourth quarter to finally win one against the Chargers.
