lol I wouldn't even use "debatable" as a word to describe the situation. There is nothing debatable about who won that fight. Manny Pacquiao easily won that fight.
and yeah Kevo, I'm pretty damn sure that Paquiao was advised to take a little extra time to let the NBA game to end and to let them hype the fight a little more (they were hugging bradley's balls all prefight, talking about how its such a tough fight and manny is taking him lightly, etc).
Either way, even if he was mostly responsible, he made up for it in my eyes with a brilliant display of superior technique, footwork, power, speed, everything.
