Pacquiao Reveals He Wants Bradley Revenge Bout

MANILA, Philippines — Manny Pacquiao says he wants a rematch with Timothy Bradley after a five-judge panel assembled by the WBO championship committee unanimously favored the Filipino fighter in a video review.

Pacquiao said Thursday he would prefer a rematch rather than Bradley giving up the WBO welterweight title that he won on a split decision because "people may think I just usurped it."

The five judges on the review panel all scored the fight in Pacquiao's favor — 117-111, 117-111, 118-110, 116-112 and 115-113. At the June 9 bout in Las Vegas, judge Jerry Roth had it 115-113 for Pacquiao, and Duane Ford and C.J. Ross had it for Bradley by the same score.

Pacquiao's return date has been set aside for November 10th, likely at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. He arrives in Los Angeles on Sunday and plans to meet with his promoter, Top Rank's Bob Arum, next week to discuss his November fight and the possible options on the table.

I think Timmeh beats him convincingly in the rematch

I see no reason why manny would entertain a rematch with either jmm or tim other than he needs to murk them to make people believe he can compete with floyd or to make money rather than fight floyd.
