Timothy Bradley and Manny Pacquiao came out for the last round of their welterweight title clash having put on a very entertaining scrap, but one that seemed pretty one-sided in the favor of Pacquiao.
Bradley threw a combination right away but Pacquiao was still keeping his gloves up.
Bradley did achieve some sort of moral victory for getting through the fight without getting knocked out (or even down), but it was basically impossible for me to see any way that Bradley hadn't lost the fight.
But through the final round, he was still throwing punches with the intent to land and hurt, and deserves credit for that.
The bout came to an end right after both men swung a combination.
Both men raised their arms, but Bradley didn't look like he really believed it.
Round: 10-9 Bradley
Manny Pacquiao wins the fight on the SBNation scorecard.

This is a crazy result. I can't believe this. Much more coming on this.
