MANILA, Philippines - Like majority of the boxing fans around the world, several international celebrities, including boxing legend Oscar de la Hoya and Manny Pacquiao critic himself – Floyd Mayweather Sr. – expressed shock and disbelief on the outcome of the Pacquiao-Tim Bradley fight.

Miley Cyrus said on Twitter: “Yo Manny! you just gotta remember what my daddy @billyraycyrus always told me “when you knock em out, you dont need no judge!”

She even added, “I couldn’t agree more with the trending topics manny pacquiao is still the worlds best boxer.”

“My boy Pacman just got robbed without a gun,” twitted NBA player Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks.

Khloe Kardasian’s also in protest: “The stats don’t add up to the decision made. This is crazy! Can I really get my money back now?”

Bruno Mars also tweeted: “Pac man 4 life”.

Even Pacquiao’s old foe, Oscar dela Hoya, did not agree with the judges’ decision.

“Bradley should have given the belt and announce victory to Pacquiao right after the decision,” he said via Twitter.

Meanwhile, it was also reported that even Floyd Mayweather Sr., who has long been critical of Pacquiao, is on the Filipino boxing champ’s side for now.

“Just spoke to Floyd Mayweather Sr. He thought Pacquiao won. Thought Bradley fought well but definitely lost,” said Brett Okamoto, an ESPN correspondent, on his Twitter account.
