At least the rematch will have hype which is what boxing is built on.

Unless there is an investigation into this I have a feeling boxing will get a backlash to this. I for one don't plan on purchasing this fight like I usually do for Pac fights.

Have to agree with Antix, this fight wasn't gonna be a big PPV or ticket draw. Now, we have a revenge set up, leaving Manny as the "hero" avenging against the undefeated champion. They are ALL laughing all the way to the bank in November, and then hopefully get PBF Cinco de Mayo weekend.

He's relieved he doesn't have to worry about talks of a fight with Floyd for a little while at least

^^^That is IF there's a rematch....

http://www.latimes.com/sports/boxing/la-sp-boxing-pacquiao-bradley-20120611,0,5421219.story

Fight promoter Bob Arum said after the bout that he heard from ticket brokers who said they would have trouble selling seats to a Bradley rematch because most fight watchers considered the World Boxing Organization welterweight title bout on Saturday at the MGM Grand a one-sided Pacquiao victory.

"The brokers are telling us if we make a Bradley rematch, no one will go," Arum said.

Todd duBoef, president of Arum's Top Rank promotional company, said he'd like to see the results of polls asking fans if they want a rematch before committing to a second fight.

Also Bradley's is looking for double the payout from yesterday. As the champion* he's "entitled" to it, i guess.

As I said before. Pac doesn't need Bradley. He should either retire after this b******t or fight Floyd. Who cares if he avenges this b******t loss to Bradley. No one wants to see it. This isn't going to make Bradley a house hold name and a big draw. He will be forgotten about by next week.

Yep.

The sport is f**ked. Those two should just call it a career and enjoy the rest of their lives. Without them the sport will die quickly. And I will say good riddance.
reminded me of that one time where Delahoya got his ass beat for 12 rounds and still got the decision win because the Hopkins fight was already scheduled. Boxing is a fkn joke.

Draw my butt.
