The controversy surrounding the Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley decision has left people clamoring for an investigation, and for the judges to try and explain those ridiculous and seemingly indefensible scorecards. One of the two questionable judges, Duane Ford has apparently stepped up and addressed his scoring, unfortunately he fails badly in doing so.

Like the NSAC's Keith Kizer, this questionable judge also feels like he performed well:

"You've got to put the ball in the basket and Manny didn't put the ball in the basket enough. This isn't American Idol. If I judge for the people, I shouldn't be a judge. I went in with a clear mind and judged each round."

"I don't look at the punch stats but I saw Manny miss a lot of punches and Bradley hit Manny and win a lot of the exchanges. I'm comfortable with my performance. I thought Bradley gave Pacquiao a boxing lesson."

American Idol? Judging for the people? I think the guy completely missed the boat on this whole thing. Bad judging is bad judging. It has nothing to do with the popular opinion, and everything to do with making the proper call -- Something he failed to do for several of the rounds he scored, including giving Manny Pacquiao's best round to his opponent.
