Pacquiao welcomes WBO decision on Bradley bout
MANILA, Philippines – Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao welcomes the World Boxing Organization’s unanimous decision declaring him the winner in his June 9 fight against Timothy Bradley in Las Vegas.
Pacquiao said the development should serve as a lesson to the judges, but added that he is not taking any action and will simply leave the matter to the WBO.
The WBO and the Nevada State Athletic Commission launched investigations into the fight after the judges handed down a controversial split decision in favor of Bradley.
Pacquiao is still open to a rematch with Bradley, but he will still discuss the matter with his promoter, Top Rank’s Bob Arum, next month. Mornings @ ANC, June 21, 2012.
