Boxing results: Diego Chaves earns controversial draw with Timothy Bradley

Timothy Bradley and Diego Chaves produce war but the decision is controversial

“I THOUGHT I won at least eight rounds,” said a shocked Timothy Bradley after the judges declared his 12-round welterweight war with Diego Chaves a draw at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.

The American, looking to rebound from an April loss to Manny Pacquiao, started fast and bowled in an overhand right that gained power in flight. It thudded off Chaves’ face but his body stayed upright. It was a punch Bradley had fun with all night.

The pair were exchanging from the third round and it became a thrilling spectacle. Even so, Bradley seemed to be doing enough.
