Pacquiao Won! -WBO

The World Boxing Organization (WBO) has released the result of its review of the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley. The result is unanimous; all five judges who have reviewed the fight have scored in favor of the peoples’ champ Manny Pacquiao!

However, in spite of the result of the review, WBO says it has no power to reverse the decision of the judges in the Pacquiao-Bradley fight. All they can do now is order a rematch.

The contract between the two fighters has a rematch clause anyway so WBO’s order for a rematch does not seem to be that crucial.

According to Pacquiao, he welcomes the result of the review and expresses gratitude to all who have supported him but as far as the rematch is concern, it is all up to his promoter.

I think the review has proven that Pacquiao is the true winner of the fight.
