Timothy Bradley defeated Manny Pacquiao in a stunning split decision on Saturday night in Las Vegas. There was an instant outcry as soon as Bradley was announced the winner. Even Bradley was stunned by the outcome. Pacquiao generally kept his composure in the ring and went through the formality of the post-fight interview without much controversy.
After departing the ring, Pacquiao spoke with ESPN's Bernardo Osuna and was much more distraught and mystified by the judges' decision. SB Nation's Bad Left Hook transcribed the interview in which Manny clearly indicated that the decision blindsided him:
Bernardo Osuna, ESPN: "Manny, how surprised were you by the decision when they read it as a victory for Timothy Bradley?"
Manny Pacquiao: "I'm really...I'm very surprised. I'm very surprised."
Pacquiao was soft-spoken and searching for words as he tried to comprehend what had just transpired. In the moment, he said he'll take any opponent his promoter sets up for his next fight:
Osuna: "For the future, you had plans maybe for a fourth Marquez fight, a Mayweather fight, now are you gonna take the rematch clause, or is there another option for you?"
Pacquiao: "Rematch, whatever. Whatever the promoter gives me to me.
Osuna: "But you want to get back in the ring against Tim Bradley."
Pacquiao: "I want that. It depends."
