Timothy Bradley has fractured foot

6/11/2012 - Boxing

Timothy Bradley suffered a fractured left foot in Saturday night's controversial victory over Manny Pacquiao.

Bradley's manager, Can Dunkin, also said Sunday that Bradley's
right ankle is twisted and swollen.

Bradley, who attended the post-fight news conference in a
wheelchair, said he heard his left foot snap in the second
round. In the fifth, he injured his right foot.

Despite the injuries, Bradley continued and went on to win
a highly controversial split decision to claim the WBO
welterweight title and end Pacquiao's seven-year unbeaten
run.

"I've never been as ashamed of the sport of boxing as I am
tonight," said promoter Bob Arum, who handles both
fighters.

Bradley came on strong in the later rounds, winning five of the
last six on two scorecards and four on the third.

He won 115-113
on the scorecards of judges Duane Ford and C.J. Ross, while
losing on Jerry Roth's scorecard by the same margin. The
Associated Press had Pacquiao winning 117-111.

Ringside punching statistics showed Pacquiao landing 253 punches to
159 for Bradley, who vowed before the fight to take the 147-pound
title from Pacquiao.

The Compubox statistics showed Pacquiao landing
more punches in 10 of the 12 rounds.

Bradley was so confident entering the fight that he had oversized tickets printed up for a November 10 rematch that now will likely happen.
