Paddy pays back punters after Pacquiao defeat

ON THE ROPES: Pacquiao feels the force of Bradley last night (Getty)

It was a result that stunned the world, even by modern professional boxing standards.

Last night in Las Vegas the brilliant Filipino Manny Pacquiao lost his WBO welterweight belt to Timothy Bradley in a controversial split-decision defeat.

With that Paddy Power has rolled out one of our famous Justice Payouts. If you had placed a bet on Manny to win in a pre-fight outright or on points, that money is now back in your account. We Hear You!

Judge Jerry Roth awarded the fight to Pacquiao. CJ Ross and Duane Ford gave it to Bradley, from California. The crowd responded with boos after 12 rounds which Pacquiao dominated.

As ever, Pacquiao was diplomatic about the decision. “You know I respect the decision but 100 per cent I believe I won the fight,” he said.

New welterweight champion Bradley, in a wheelchair after injuring his ankle during the fight, wants a November rematch.

“I’m happy, I’m the new welterweight champion. My team and I, we did it baby and I told you that we were going to shock the world and I definitely would like to do this again,” he said.

“I heard the boos at the end of the night which is ok, but we need to definitely do this again in November and let’s make it more decisive for everybody,” he added.

Paddy Power Blog reporter Lee Dover had tipped up the unfancied Bradley in his pre-fight report, here.

    What happened during the Pacquiao-Bradley match was a disgrace to boxing. The judges ruined the beauty of the whole fight. Has boxing become a dying sport now? Will the fans then realized and get into the light of truth that they have to stop patronizing the sport that made the fools out of them?
