Manny Pacquiao Robbed! London Olympics & NFL Quick Hits W/ Ochocinco: 6/12, Vol. 162, 2nd Edition

Let me at a throne of mercy find a sweet relief; kneeling there in deep contrition, help my unbelief…I’m calling you Savior, Savior….hear my humble cry! Welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.!

Call the police!  Manny was robbed!
Not only is the boxing world, but the sporting world in general are up in arms over the Manny Pacqaio / Timothy Bradley split decision, in favor of Bradley.  Many have suspected that boxing was corrupted and the split decision did no favors in winning them over.  According to CompuBox, Pacquiao landed 34% of his punches compared to Bradley’s 19% and Pacquiao also landed 82 more power punches.  As news filtered of Pacquiao’s defeat, Filipino’s expressed anger and shock over the decision and some even cried for their fellow countryman.  Bob Arum, promoter for both fighters, have submitted his formal request to investigate a “full and complete inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the scoring” to the Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto.  But of course, Arum already stated he would make a lot of money on the re-match, which is to be determined.
