Boxer Manny Pacquiao feels like he won his WBO welterweight title match with Timothy Bradley on Saturday and let a TMZ camera know when they stopped him on the streets.

Pacquiao lost a controversial split decision to Bradley when stats showed he threw and landed more punches. Bradley won 115-113 on two scorecards, while losing on the third by the same margin.

“I did my best,” Pacquiao said after the fight.  “I guess my best wasn’t good enough.”

When asked by TMZ if the judges were unfair when they crowned Bradley the new champion, Pacquiao said. “That’s their decision, dude … hard to change.”

He then added, “I respect that decision, but we know in our hearts.”
