Andre Ward: "Tim Bradley should give his belt back to Pacquiao."

Super middleweight boxing champion Andre Ward says that if he was Tim Bradley, he would give back the WBO welterweight title belt to Manny Pacquiao.

Bradley won a very controversial decision against Pacquiao on Saturday, and almost all of the reporters and fans in Las Vegas thought Pacquiao dominated the f!ght.

"It was a ridiculous decision," said Ward, who was at the f!ght. "Bradley lost the majority of the rounds. If it was me personally, I would admit defeat and say, 'Here's your belt back.'"

Bradley said after the f!ght that he would watch it again to see if he really won. But his comments got stronger later, saying he thought he "carried the f!ght with my jab" and that he was the "No. 2 pound-for-pound" best f!ghter behind Floyd Mayweather.

If Bradley did watch the f!ght over again, he would clearly see that he lost the f!ght, Ward said. Bradley didn't get one good punch in, Pacquiao said, and Ward agreed that Bradley's lack of power was evident.

"There was nothing there, nothing to suggest it was even close," Ward said. "If you were being generous, extremely generous, maybe you could give Tim four rounds and he loses 8-4. I love Tim, he is a friend of mine, but he has to know that he lost that f!ght."

And Bradley should say that and give the belt back to Pacquiao.

"It's the right thing to do," Ward said. "It's a tough situation, but you gotta make a stand and that will help make sure that this kind of thing doesn't happen again. He won't lose any stock - in fact, his reputation would be enhanced.

"It would help us put the reigns on this Wild Wild West situation that boxing has become."

Ironically, if Bradley had lost the f!ght he might be looked at more favorably by boxing fans.

"He has nothing to hang his head about," Ward said. "He hurt his foot early and he never gave up, took some good shots and hung in there."

Ward was at the Pacquiao-Bradley match to promote his Sept. 8 f!ght in his hometown of Oakland against light heavyweight champ Chad Dawson. Ward was stunned just like everyone else at the MGM Grand when the split-decision result was announced.

"My first reaction was shock, then anger and then sadness," Ward said. "I have dedicated half of my life to this sport and what happened Saturday is unacceptable. And it's going to continue to happen until there is a commission that starts to impose sanctions. There have to be investigations and punishments."

The executive director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission said he anticipates no discipline or review of the two judges who scored the f!ght 115-113 for Bradley. (The other judge had Pacquiao winning 115-113 while the Chronicle had it 119-109).

"That's a shame, because they're messing with people's livelihoods when they allow this to happen. It hurts the sport's credibility, it hurts the pay-per-view numbers ... Boxing was doing great again after the Mayweather- (Miguel) Cotto f!ght, but one situation like this and we're back on life support.

"It hurts everybody. Everybody involved in the sport."

Ward is entitled to his opinion....but this talk of giving the belt back is corny as fu*k, Bradley shouldn't give back a damn thing. I personally thought he lost, but he's not the judge. If at least 2 judges score the f!ght for you, you win, that's just the rules of the game.

Bradley fought hard yea but come on now... if everybody got a belt for 'f!ghtin hard' the sport would be an even bigger joke than it already is

It seems most people here have no idea what they're talking about.

Like they know more about the science of boxing than Boxers themselves or otherwise people whose whole lives revolve around boxing. Across the spectrum all the RESPECTABLE boxing analysts and experts believe this f!ght was fixed and that Manny won THIS f!ght.

People want to talk about Marquez, that was a CLOSE f!ght, but Manny won that f!ght period. End of story.

This situation with Bradley and the judges and however deep it goes is bigger than that. This is about being in 2012 and corruption running rampant. From Wall Street to the elite one percent to the Nevada Athletic Commission.

It has to stop now or we as a people lost. This is about f!ghting against tyranny and corruption. If it doesn't stop here then when will it end?

Also, I agree with Andre Ward, Bradley needs to find respect in himself and give the belt back. Or this will eat at his conscience for the rest of his miserable life. I guarantee you this will follow him wherever he goes and might even cause him to commit suicide in the long run.

I don't think Bradley wants that weight on his shoulders… does he?
