Pacquiao Vs. Bradley: WBO Will Review Title Bout

The WBO announced Wednesday that it will review the controversial title fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley. Bradley won the fight last Saturday in a split decision that many outside of the ringside judges would have given to Pacquiao. WBO president Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel said in his statement that the WBO's championship committee will look at the tape with five "recognized international judges" and make a recommendation.

Bradley won, 115-113, on two scorecards, while losing on the third. The decision was not well-received by the crowd, nor by the media. Promoter Bob Arum has already taken the match to the Nevada State Athletic Commission for review.

Pacquiao has already said he would fight Bradley November rematch. Still, it is a good sign for fans of the sport that the proper due diligence is being enacted following the outrage over the weekend.
