Pacquiao Vs. Bradley Video: Luke Thomas Discusses Robbery

The morning after a robbery in boxing, usually things don't seem quite so bad. That's not really the case today as no one seems able to quite come to grips with the fact that Manny Pacquiao had a clear win stolen from him.

Luke Thomas, SB Nation's senior editor of combat sports, discussed the events of last night in a video:

As Luke points out, New Jersey took action against judges who had returned indefensible scores, suspending those they felt failed to do their job. I don't see that happening in Nevada, though.

After one of the bigger robberies in recent years, when Richard Abril was robbed against Brandon Rios, I called Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director, Keith Kizer, who expressed little to no interest in even looking into the scoring.

For whatever reason, I think Nevada will choose to look the other way once again, and that's a damn shame.
