While Manny Pacquiao and Jeff Horn were swinging for the fences in Brisbane, Australia, ESPN commentator and former boxing world champion Timothy Bradley somehow wound up in Argentina as he was calling the action, Sunday afternoon. 

Wait, what? Wasn't Bradley supposed to be in Brisbane as well? 

Talking about the possibility of Australia's own Horn getting a hometown nod since the fight was being held Down Under, Bradley slipped up, by saying "we are in Argentina." 

He was immediately corrected by co-anchor Teddy Atlas, but the damage was done, and Twitter went in on the former Pacquiao opponent. 


While of course it was just a simple mistake on Bradley's part, in this age of social media, you cannot make mistakes. Especially if you're doing commentary on live, free American TV, with millions and millions of people tuned in. 

Horn ended up outpointing Pacquiao after twelve rounds to become the new WBO welterweight champion. This is a milestone that he'll be sharing with his fellow Argentinians...I mean Australians, my bad.
