Timothy Bradley shocked the world after pulling off a remarkable upset victory over the legendary Manny Pacquiao last Saturday in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Bradley took the fight and Pacquiao's WBO World Welterweight Championship via split-decision with judges C.J. Ross and Duane Ford scoring the bout 115-133 in his favor and judge Jerry Roth being the lone opposition on the panel, scoring it numerically similar but in favor of Pacquiao.

Negative outcry was the general theme of the reactions from the boxing community regarding the decision, but of course there are a select number of individuals who truly believe that Bradley deserved the victory.

Although I for one believe that Bradley put on a strong enough performance and that the win was warranted, much of boxing's higher-echelon analysts would beg to differ.

A good portion of the boxing world was quick to jump on the "fix" accusation, making villains of Bradley, Arum, the judges, the mafia and even the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Whether or not the fight was fixed or fair, the fact remains that Bradley won.

So here, step back from all the debate and agitation surrounding the fight and instead take a peek into what the future has in store for us in the aftermath of the fight.
