WBO Prez: We Can Not Reverse Pacquiao-Bradley Decision

By Rey Colon

The World Boxing Organization, led by Puerto Rico's President Francisco ‘Paco‘ Valcárcel, will have the organization's Championship Committee evaluate the controversial fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, where Bradley captured the WBO's welterweight title with a split decision (113-115, 115-113, 115-113). The result has been highly protested all over the world.

Valcárcel informed BoxingScene.com that the WBO selected five (5) recognized international judges, including Puerto Rico's Nelson Vázquez, who will review the video and then take a vote regarding the result. The WBO will then follow their regulations, making Pacquiao the number one contender or ordering an immediate rematch, but the are unable to reverse the decision.

As a courtesy, the WBO will send their review to the Athletic Commission of the State of Nevada.

“We want to get the impression of five international judges but we can not reverse the decision. Of course, we can place [Pacquiao] at number one [in the rankings] and arrange a rematch. But we want to check because five pairs of eyes can see better than three. We are going to compare [our findings] with the official cards and submit our opinion," Paco indicated.

[QUOTE=hugh grant;12243110]The decision should be reversable, because unless it is, there is no point in watching boxing. So if the judges are bradley fans without anyone knowing it, so they score for Bradley even though he clearly lost, it cant…
