Pacquiao Vs. Bradley: WBO To Investigate Title Fight

Per a report from USA Today the World Boxing Organization, better known to many as the WBO, will indeed be investigating the recent fight between Manny Pacquiao and southern California native Timothy Bradley, which ended in a very controversial split decision that was not viewed favorably by many.

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.

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum has said that he has submitted a formal request for an inquiry to the Nevada attorney general's office.
