Manny Pacquiao won the June 9 fight with Timothy Bradley, a 5-member panel of judges convened by World Boxing Organization president Francisco "Paco" Valcarel has ruled, according to www.ring.tv on Thursday (Manila time), June 21. All the 5 judges voted unanimously in favor of Pacquiao after watching the video of the fight. 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. The Associated Press scored it 117-111 for Pacquiao.
"My supporters shouldn't worry. We're going to get that title," Pacquiao said. The WBO can't overturn the result of the fight. Valcarcel informed RingTV.com that his judges all had the matchup for Pacauiao, by scores of 117-111, 117-111, 118-110, 116-112, and115-113.
Pacquiao said he was elated by the decision, describing it as proof of "justice." He told ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel: "Nandiyan ang katarungan." He expressed the hope that the decision would bring back boxing fans' faith in the sport. He also thanked his fans for supporting him all throughout.
Ringtv quoted Top Rank CEO Bob Arum as saying, "That's a Solomon-like conclusion. Paco is a good man, he really is. I have great respect for him and what he says... It's appropriate for him to make that final conclusion."
On the night of the fight, Bradley (29-0, 12 knockouts) defeated Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KOs) by scores of 115-113 on the cards of official judges C.J. Ross and Duane Ford, while Jerry Roth had it the same way for Pacquiao.
Valcarcel however conceded that the fight ended in a controversial result, and eventually decided to convene a panel of 5 judges to review the fight. Pacquiao and Bradley’s fight contract contains a rematch clause, scheduled for November 10. But Arum and other Top Rank officials have said that they will most likely not push through with it.
