I wonder exactly how the Ring rankings will be affected with tonight's fight. As far as I know they get the rankings from polling a bunch of boxing writers right? Because clearly, Bradley should not be ranked higher than Pacquiao even if he won the decision.

I think Mayweather and Pacquiao will still be tied at 2, but Bradley could drop a spot or two.

Boxing is killing itself but Arum is certainly speeding up the process.

What should the NSAC do against fixed fights?

Only the judges can be suspended I think. It's funny that the worst judge from the Brandon Rios vs. Richard Abril fight scored the fight for Pacquiao. Very strange that the fight would be scored 115-113 on all three cards.

Bob Arum is blaming the commission in his interview for ESPN. More fights in Texas? Pacquiao mentioned that he would like the rematch in Vegas at the MGM again.
