Did Manny Pacquiao’s Stance for God Cost Him Title? (Pacman still P4P Better than Floyd Mayweather)

Manny Pacquiao
Manny Pacquiao made a stand against President Barrack Obama’s “coming out of the closet” support for Gay marriage. Prior to the Bradley fight HBO’s Max Kellerman questioned if Pac Man’s new found belief in God could make him less of a fighter? It seems whenever God’s name comes into the picture the liberals/atheists come out of the woodwork and attack!

Both Pacquiao and Tim Bradley have strong religious beliefs but the Pac Man is the No. 1 P4P boxer in the world who hadn’t lost since 2006. In watching Nik Wallenda walk a tightrope across Niagra Falls he prayed to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ continually. ABC cut it out most of the time and even his father would interrupt him during this walk as he prayed. We live in a country where the name God has been taken off of monuments so possibly a city like Las Vegas could have been gotten two with the two judges chosen for the “big fight”.

When the HBO judge Harold Lederman claimed that the two judges Duane Ford and C.J. Ross were not qualified for this level of a fight you knew something was in the works. "I could have given them 10 judges who would have scored that fight correctly," said Lederman who was quoted recently by USA Today.

Remember when the promoter of this fight Top Rank’s Bob Arum brought in a MI and IL judge in 1992 to work the James “Lights Out” Toney defense against Dave “TNT” Tiberi to Atlantic City, NJ? Tiberi was a clear winner on the NJ judges score card along with the many fans watching. The two out of state judges went for Toney. Did lightning strike twice? Tiberi vowed never to fight again and didn’t. He created the Muhammad Ali Act to prevent promoters from doing what Arum did to him as a fighter. By the time it got to NV the then and now Senator Harry Reid watered it down. So don’t expect any action from Reid on this one.

Does Arum want to make sure Floyd Mayweather never gets the payday a Pacquaio-Mayweather fight would bring him? You don’t have to fix a fight, just put in an inferior opponent so why not inferior judges? Even Bradley could not bring himself to say “I thought I won the fight”. He said “I will have to look at the tapes”. (*editor's note: Bradley has since gone on record to say he won the fight.) It’s a shame a good guy like Bradley got caught in the middle of this but it could have happened if “jailbird” Mayweather ever fought him. We all know how the image of boxing would be with Mayweather instead of Pacquaio as the No. 1 P4P boxer people look to! When you compare who Pacquaio has fought to who Mayweather has fought there is no comparison. Pac Man has earned his reputation at the No. 1 boxer in the world!
