WBO will re-examine Bradley vs. Pacquiao match

Championship committee will meet 'soon' to evaluate video

LAS VEGAS - Officials with the World Boxing Organization announced on Wednesday they will review the boxing match between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley -- a match that ended with a controversial win by Bradley.

WBO President Francisco "Paco" Valcárcel said the Championship Committee will meet soon and will examine video of the match with five international judges.

"I want to clarify that in no way this says that we are doubting the capacity of these judges, which we consider as honest and competent judges," said Valcárcel.

Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KOs) and Bradley (29-0, 12 KOs) fought for Pacquiao's WBO welterweight title on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Resort. 

The bout ended in a split decision victory in favor of Cathedral City native Timothy Bradley. The three judges scored the bout 115-113 (Duane Ford), 115-113 (C.J. Ross) and 113-115 (Jerry Roth).
