LAS VEGAS (AP) The WBO says it will review the title fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, which ended with Bradley's controversial split decision win over the Filipino champion.
WBO President Francisco ''Paco'' Valcarcel said in a statement Wednesday that the WBO's championship committee will review video of the match with five ''recognized international judges'' and will make a recommendation.
He says in the statement that the WBO does not doubt the ability of the scoring judges.
Bradley won 115-113 on two scorecards, while losing by the same margin on the third. The decision was roundly booed Saturday night by the crowd at the MGM Grand arena.....................

Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
Quite frankly.......Pacquiao got screwed. I looked at all of the stats from the fight. Pacquiao landed a higher percentage in every category. This split decision is the exact reason why I no longer follow boxing. The sport of boxing has become corrupt because of the money. They have decided to hand pick winners before the fight ever begins, based on the revenue that the "next" fight could produce. From guys being paid to flop, to the apparent pre-picked winners......the sport of boxing has gone to crap. Not to mention, the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) guys can beat the crap out of any of the boxers.
I spend most days hunting, fishing, and on Truckingboards. The rest of my days are just wasted.
