I accidentally posted this in the football forum so I repost here.
Rematches are designed for close fights not fixed fights. If you support the rematch, then you are one of the fools who got suckered in.
What did Bradley earn or do to deserve more millions on a rematch? Why would the boxing fans want to pay their hard earned money to the ones who ripped them off?
Manny should retire. Continue to train privately in Phil, unretire and negotiate a fight w/ Floyd in May 2013 promoted by MP Promotions and Mayweather Promotions. With uncle Bob out of the picture, negotiations will be met and bigger purses will go to both boxers instead of uncle wanting a huge piece of the pie.
Coming from a Pacfan from Cebu (not me)
First and foremost, on behalf of your million fans around the GLOBE I would like to express my sincerest gratitude for not only bringing honor to our country as the one and only undisputed Eight-Division World Champion, but rather as an inspiration to all young Filipinos who are aspiring to uplift their lives just like where you at right now, somehow.
My only simple advice for you is that please discontinue your plans in having a rematch against Timothy Bradley. All your fans up to your greatest critics and naysayers believe that you clearly dominated and won that fight doubtlessly. Ok, let’s say you can have the rematch and you win, that’s only an indication that you have nothing to prove unless you just after the MONEY. What if in your rematch, Bradley won’t engage with you and will just run all night long in order to survive in the 12 rounds and same decision by the judges you will get? Thus, do you think you won’t be ridiculed and humiliated including WE your Filipino fans? Don’t mind these two Judges who gave prejudicial judgment the outcome of your fight they are just paid for something in return.
I think the best thing you can do is move on, leave this controversial fight the way it is so that this becomes part of the boxing HISTORY. You can now even retire for good because I believe you have already done more than enough to cement your legacy as one of the greatest boxers if not the greatest boxer of all time.
But nonetheless, should you decide to fight one more time before retiring it should be against Mayweather or nothing. I know this fight will embrace another milestone as the fight of the century, either win or lose. But be sure to leave TOP RANK PROMOTER because this dream fight that the world wants to see will never ever MATERIALIZE if you will stay under their hat.
Lastly, I’d like to remind you that why you’re no longer wearing a ROSARY or a SCAPULAR before the start of your fight against Bradley? Don’t you remember that wearing those things were part of your success during your darkest struggle prior to reaching the Eight-Division World Champion title? Not until you become the limelight of boxing you now disregarding what have you been doing before?
Anyway, no matter what happens you’re always be our real CHAMP.
