Netizens wanted Pacquiao to knockout Bradley
MANILA, Philippines—Looks like Netizens lacked the skills of the oracles in predicting Pacquiao fights.
Yes, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao reclaimed the World Boxing Organization Welterweight belt from Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley on Sunday (Philippine time) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in a gruelling 12 rounds, but Netizens wanted more.
In an unofficial poll by INQUIRER.net, a majority of Netizens, 54.5 percent or 1,024 out of 1,879, wanted a good, clean haymaker from the eight-division World champion that would introduce Bradley to the 40 Winks.
It was the minority, 45.5 percent or 855, of the respondents who got a better view of the crystal as they foresaw a decision that would end the fight.
Pacquiao regained the title via unanimous decision, 116-112, 116-112, and 118-110, and Michael Buffer couldn’t have announced it any better.
