How a guy coming off a loss to Alvarado managed to book a fight with Pacquiao and that was seen as legit says something about the sport.

I wasnt either but Pacquiao is coming back from a year layoff after a brutal KO loss. I'd say he looked pretty good considering. It definitely was nowhere near the beating I thought it would be. Good fight though...or asswhooping or whatever.

Them dudes actually let their hands go..this dude went into straight shell mode from the 7th round on...Pacquaio trying to knock him out would've been wasting energy. If Brandon hadn't been in that shell he'd be even worse than he is today. For a year off and coming off something that would take the confidence out of anyone he looked amazing. A hell of a lot better than most people thought he'd look in all honesty. When he started opening up with the combos you knew he had just snapped his confidence back into place, my issue is I hope he doesn't let that confidence get him reckless again. I like the apprehensive pacquaio he boxes beautifully when he isn't in tasmanian devil mode.

Not to mention, it probably was promoted more than any fight this year. Moreso than even Mayweather vs Canelo. It felt like no matter what station I turned to, that fight was in my face. Two fighters trying to bounce back from losses. Remind me again how many Andre Ward and Guillermo Rigondeaux commercials you saw lol

Makes no sense. What do you prove by beating a fighter coming off a loss? Especially when said fighter wasn't on your level BEFORE before both fighters recent losses? What was proven, that Pac isn't brain damaged by his KO loss? This fight was tailor made style and momentum wise, Rios on the downslide, hmmm, sounds familiar.

So basically no one shouldve fought Manny after he got KOd since he was coming off a loss.makes sense.
