World boxing champion Manny Pacquiao has won the June 9 fight with Timothy Bradley, World Boxing Organization (WBO) said on Thursday, June 21.
According to RingTv, five judges convened by WBO president Francisco “Paco” Valcarel has voted unanimously in favor of Pacquiao after watching the video of the fight.
The judges scored in Pacquiao’s favor by 117-111, 117-111, 118-110, 116-112, and 115-113.
On the night of the fight, Bradley defeated Pacquiao by scores of 115-113 on the cards of official judges C.J. Ross and Duane Ford, while Jerry Roth had it for Pacquiao.
The report added that WBO cannot reverse the decision of the judges on June 9 despite the review of the five judges.
“The only thing that we can do is authorize a rematch,” Valcarcel told RingTV.
Pacquiao and Bradley’s rematch is scheduled on November 10. But Arum and other Top Rank officials have said that they will most likely not push through with it. It appears that Pacquiao may fight Mexican rival Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time this November, the report ended.
