Duane Ford, one of the two judges who favored Bradley in the fight, defended his scorecard Sunday. “I thought Bradley gave Pacquiao a boxing lesson,” he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I thought a lot of the rounds were close. Pacquiao missed a lot of punches, and I thought he was throwing wildly.”
Even though his victory has brought a lot of grief, Bradley might as well enjoy it. The record book says he won, and that’s really all that matters.
