Manny Pacquiao has first loss in seven years; fans are enraged
By Clarissa Batino and Joel Guinto, Updated: Sunday, June 10, 8:05 AM
June 10 (Bloomberg) — Manny Pacquiao suffered his first defeat in seven years, a split decision to unbeaten Timothy Bradley that enraged fans of the Philippine boxer who’s won world championships in eight weight classes.
“Pac-Man was cheated,” said Karen Selevares, using the nickname of the fighter who’s become a national hero in his Southeast Asian nation and was elected to Congress in May 2010. “They’re probably setting up a rematch,” said the 29-year-old housewife, who took her 6-year-old son to a live screening of the fight two hours ahead of time to get good seats.
A pro-Pacquiao audience at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas reacted with jeers as Bradley, 28, was declared the winner. The American boxer won 115-113 on two judges’ scorecards, while Pacquiao was ahead 115-113 on the third.
Bob Arum, promoter of both fighters, said the two judges who scored the bout in Bradley’s favor should have their eyes examined. Oscar De La Hoya, who lost to Pacquiao in December 2008, wrote on Twitter that Bradley shouldn’t have accepted the victory. Pacquiao landed 253 punches to Bradley’s 159, and out- slugged Bradley 190-108 on power punches.
“I cannot believe what I just saw,” singer Justin Timberlake wrote on Twitter. “Please tell me they read the decision wrong.”
Out of Poverty
Pacquiao, 33, is a high school dropout who lifted his family out of poverty through boxing. In the 1990s, he fought for purses as small as 150 pesos ($3.50) — then about the cost of a T-shirt in the Philippines. Today he’s the richest Philippine congressman, surpassing Imelda Marcos, with a net worth inflated by TV appearances and endorsing products with the Nike, Hennessy Cognac and HP brands.
“I did my best,” he said. “I guess my best wasn’t good enough.” Pacquiao (54-4-3, 38 knockouts) said he was shocked to hear the decision, and agreed to a rematch being scheduled for November.
“He is no longer Pacquiao, the unstoppable,” said Ramon Casiple, executive director at the Institute for Political and Electoral Reform in Manila. His viability as politician and a product endorser will depend on whether he beats Bradley on the rematch.
“I thought I won the fight,” said Bradley, who is 29-0 with 11 knockouts. “I didn’t think he was as good as everyone says. I didn’t feel his power.”
ATTENTION: To All MMA Schools. I have recently developed a Vital Targets for MMA Seminar. If you would like to host a seminar, please contact Coach David Alexander at coachalexander @ gmail.com.
TRAIN SMART ~ FIGHT SMART
If you would like your school to host a Vital Targets for MMA Seminar, then let me know at Coach David Alexander coachalexander @ gmail.com.
Vital Targets for MMA (A New and Unique Concept for MMA): This, my friends, is THE FUTURE OF MMA! Learn it now or get left behind! This is the future for a NEW BREED of SMART FIGHTERS. The fighters who learn this concept will have a unique and distinct advantage over their un-educated opponents. In this lesson, I will explain where the targets are and what happens when you properly strike them. I’m adapting these unique skills from my close quarters/hand to hand fight training and anatomy knowledge (http://www.1lessonselfdefense.com). Talk about having an unfair advantage! Do you know where there are clusters of nerves on the body that can short-circuit your opponent and weaken him? Where is the best place to knee, kick or strike the legs in order to cause a “dead leg”, that can slow down your opponent or even end the fight? Where is the vagus nerve and what will it do when struck? Where is the “burrito expeller” and why do we want to hit it? Have you ever fought for an armbar and not been able to strip your opponents grip to finish? I will show you a special legal target that you can strike which will cause your opponent to lose his grip (and this target is not on the arm at all). There are many more like this…
Talk about having an unfair advantage! Do you realize how much effort a fighter uses to punch and kick with no specific target in mind? I call this “Punching Meat”, because that’s all you’re doing. Most fighters spend a majority of their time trying to knock someone out, but never set up or aim for a specific target. Repeatedly hitting your opponent in the middle of his face looks good and will score points, but it does not knock someone out! Or ask yourself this, how many roundhouse kicks to the right side of the body end up taking someone out? I’m willing to bet that you’ll end up getting taken down (and losing points in the judge’s eyes) more often than scoring points with this kick. It might get the fans excited, but it will do limited damage…and you’ll waste a lot of energy with limited results. The better spot to aim for would be the Saphenous Nerve (easier to hit with less energy spent). Fighting, without aiming at a specific “Vital Target” is like trying to hit the bullseye of a dartboard by randomly throwing darts at a wall. If you want to knock someone out or do major damage then you need to focus on striking the “Vital Targets for MMA” not just Punching Meat! Spend your energy and focus repeatedly aiming at the bullseye (Vital Targets) with every strike and you will hit it, KNOCKOUT!
These targets may not mean anything until you see me hitting them on video or in a seminar. It takes a proper set up, feints & fakes to get to these targets. This is what makes someone a professional fighter. I will show you how and when to strike these targets. One target can cause a spinal reflex that will open up another target. You must know how to hit these targets and with what strike. Thanks, Coach David Alexander (Self Defense Expert)
You must practice very slowly to make sure you’re hitting these targets exactly…otherwise your just “Punching Meat”!
