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, commissioned by WBO President Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel, scored the fight 117-111, 117-111, 118-110, 116-112 and 115-113 in favor of Pacquiao contrary to the score of judges Duane Ford and CJ Ross scoring the fight 115-113 in favor of Bradley. Jerry Roth, meanwhile, scored the 115-113 in Pacquiao's favor.
However, WBO said they can no longer reverse the decision of the judges on fight night.
