Timothy Bradley Defeats Juan Manuel Marquez in the 'We Beat Manny Pacquiao' Fight

Okay, so no one actually called it the 'We Beat Manny Pacquiao' fight but me (not that I could find at least). That was what made this fight a little more unique. It's two combatants--Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez--hold the distinction of being the only two fighters to defeat the PacMan (Bradley by decision and Marquez knocked him out).
Just like there wins over Manny this fight has a healthy amount of controversy. Bradley got the win by split decision with the judges scoring it 116-112 and 115-113 for Bradley and 115-113 for Marguez.

Bradley of course was cool with it even though he felt he fought a lot better.

''He couldn't touch me,'' Bradley said. ''I gave him a boxing lesson.''

Marquez did not hesitate when he shared his thoughts on the decision.

''I've been robbed six times in my career,'' Marquez said. ''I clearly won the fight.''

I didn't see it so I can't really judge for myself, but I will say that the only way you can clearly win the fight is to knock someone out. Just a little food for thought the next time you step in the ring.
