Timothy Bradley's upset decision over Manny Pacquiao last night surprised many observers. Count Floyd Mayweather Sr. among them. The father of Pacquiao's will-they-won't-they rival was in the stands for the big bout, telling Boxing Scene's Ryan Burton that Pacquiao deserved to win the fight.
"I feel like Pacquiao won the fight but I am not going to sugarcoat nothing. The last fight belonged to Marquez," Mayweather said while referring to Pacquiao's majority decision win over Juan Manuel Marquez this past November. "This one belonged to Pacquiao. I'm calling it like it is," Mayweather continued.
Mayweather continued, criticizing the ringside judges, saying "whoever these judges was, they need to find a new job."
The junior Floyd Mayweather has repeatedly challenged Pacquiao to a fight, which would pit the two fighters widely considered to be the best in the middle weights against each other.
