Pacquiao vs. Bradley 2 results: Bryan Vasquez decisions immature Jose Felix Jr.

Chris Farina - Top Rank

Jose Felix Jr. was unable to keep his cool, repeatedly fouling Bryan Vasquez as the fight slipped away from him. The result of a point deduction was Vasquez winning a decision that would otherwise have been a draw.

Bryan Vasquez and Jose Felix Jr. kicked off the pay-per-view broadcast for Manny Pacquiao's rematch with Timothy Bradley. The bout was for the interim WBA super welterweight title.

Felix had some good moments early in the fight, but Vasquez was able to come back strong as the first quarter of the fight came to a close.

Once Vasquez began to take the fight over with solid power punching Felix lost his cool. He began to throw low blows with a high rate of frequency, including throwing a knee at the groin of Vasquez at one point. The end result was only a single point deduction, but there could easily have been multiple points taken with the frequency of clearly intentional fouls.

Vasquez showed his maturity, however, and continued pounding away, simply outworking Felix, who looked frustrated that he couldn't get the job done with just a constant jab.

The official scorecards read 117-110, 114-113 and 114-113 all for Bryan Vasquez. The two 114-113 cards were oddly close and meant that the fight would have been scored a draw had the referee not taken a point for the fouls.
