Pacquiao won that fight.

That is all.

What they mean to say is, the check cleared and the secret wager winnings made it back through the back channels to them.

Boxing is the worst sport on the planet. There, I said it. It's worse than contact diabetes.

I missed the fight and saw only the aftermath. Based on scoring, what rounds are they off on (i.e. judges say Horn, but clearly Paq). Based on the article, I'm guessing no 10-8 rounds were given when one would have been warranted (is there a round for that). Just curious how bad it was and what rounds seem to be the trouble.

This fight just shows the issues of round-by-round scoring.  Pacman won five rounds quite convincingly, but not 10-8s, and Horn won seven close rounds.  This gives him the win, even if Pacquiao out performed in the totality of the fight.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Boxing is the worst sport on the planet. There, I said it. It's worse than contact diabetes.

Fights are scored by rounds, not punches.

Khellendros: Fights are scored by rounds, not punches.


When a guy lands twice as many punches in a fight, there's pretty much no way the other guy can win a majority of the rounds.  Manny would have had to go nuts in 5 of the rounds and do absolutely nothing in the other 7.  If you watched the fight, you know nothing close to that happened.
