Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 judges

Meet the judges for Pacquiao vs. Bradley 2
On June 9th, 2012, veteran judges Duane Ford and the notorious Ms. CJ Ross became two of the most infamous personnel within the boxing community. When Michael Buffer announced the official verdict of "Pacquiao/Bradley I", rendered by the "three blind mice" at ringside, fight fans everywhere were justifiably outraged.

Or were they?

Because scoring a prizefight is ultimately subject to interpretation, and completely dependent on a judge's personal tastes and preferences, as well as a great number of other factors, the only sure fire way of determining an absolute winner of a contest is by a clean and controversy free knock-out.

If the bout does go to the judges' scorecards, a prizefight in the end becomes a beauty contest between two contestants.

A fight is scored on a round by round basis, and a ten point must system is used in accordance with the ABC rules of boxing.

A judge's primary criteria when scoring a prizefight is 1) clean, effective, and consequential punching, 2) effective aggression, and 3) ring generalship...with a strong emphasis on clean, effective, and consequential punching.

With that said, let's introduce the fight fans to the three judges at ringside assigned to the April 12th main event of the evening, "Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley II".
