Pacquiao Vs. Bradley: Nevada Commission To Review Scoring

The Nevada State Athletic Commission will review Tim Bradley's split-decision victory over Manny Pacquiao due to the controversy and outrage it has engendered since Saturday. However, don't expect much to come of it. Executive director Keith Kizer merely wants the judges to give verbiage to their scoring decisions (via RingTV):

"I want them to review it with me for my own edification. So I'm going to have them come in individually and we will watch it. I expect these judges will show that they used correct scoring criteria and can verbalize their decision-making, as they have been able to do in the past."

Kizer went on to say that he wants the judges to explain how close the rounds were in their minds and what standard they used to assign a round to a particular boxer. But don't expect these reviews with the three judges to occur rapidly. Kizer believes he'll need the rest of the month to get them to come down and individually examine their scores.

Bad Left Hook cuts to the matter of what is really going on here:

This sounds like it amounts to, well, very little, quite honestly. Keith Kizer's "edification" doesn't seem a terribly important thing to me. I don't mean that to insult Kizer, really, but this isn't any kind of investigation, and it really doesn't mean much at all. They're going to say, "Well that's what I saw," and he's going to say, "OK."

The mirage of an investigation is no investigation at all.
