This had to be one of the worst weekends in boxing ever. Yes, the Marquez decision was extremely questionable but the call on Manny Pacquiao’s split decision loss to Timothy Bradley was straight from outer space. We all watched it with our own eyes and know the truth. Even the fight’s promoter, Bob Arum, agreed that the decision was bogus. Arum also said Bradley initially thought he lost.
“I went over to Bradley before the decision and he said, `I tried hard but I couldn’t beat the guy,’ ” Arum told ESPN.
On paper, scorers marked Pacman landing 253 punches to Bradley’s 159. Stats also showed Manny landing more punches in 10 of the 12 rounds. Adding to that is that fact that Pacquiao stated in every post-fight interview that he believed he won.
Honestly, who do you think won?
But there’s more f*ckery that went down this weekend. The shamed MC known as Canibus attempted career suicide one more time during a much hyped up rap battle. Find out what happened after the jump…
Let me start off by saying, yes, Canibus’ career never really took off like we hoped he would after all those freestyles and “2nd Round Knock Out” got us hype. His indy releases that came after were pretty much strictly for the hardcore backpackers. I mean, we even had some hope when the 4 Horsemen project was talked about. Even his little tiff with Slim Shady didn’t cause him to lose all his respect. But it sad as hell to see him destroying what respected opinion a lot of us had for him. That J. Cole disaster was pretty damn horrible, but this DIZASTER takes it to the next level of bizarro-ness. Canibus has been around long enough to know bringing a notepad out a battle is not acceptable in any circumstance. NEVER!
Now, if you’re not familiar with Dizaster try Youtubing some of his battles in the Fresh Coast League. It’s like the West Coast version of Smack but more underground and way more lyrical. Sorry Smack. He was supposed to battle Jin a long while back, but the former 106 & Park champ refused to follow through with the battle. I guess destroying Canibus was the next best thang for Dizaster
Below, check out the battle in full and you’ll see Canibus didn’t have the notepad out from the jump but he pulled it out after giving up the battle because he repeatedly failed to remember his lines. There’s a number of long pauses. Honestly, I doubt any “regular’ opponent would have gotten as many chances as Canibus. They would have been boo’d off for sure.

Canibus also takes a shot at Slaughterhouse at the 4:05 mark and 6:48 mark.
Which was worse?!
