Las Vegas, NV – The controversial decision in Saturday's Timothy Bradley-Manny Pacquiao title fight will soon be under investigation.
The chairman and CEO of Top Rank, Bob Arum, announced Monday he will submit a "formal request to the Nevada attorney general's office for a full and complete inquiry" regarding the bout.
Arum, the promoter for both fighters, was among the many who voiced their displeasure over Bradley winning two of the judges' scorecards in the WBO welterweight championship fight.
A rematch appears imminent, but apparently not before the suspicions of a fix are put to rest.
"The public has a right to know. The fighters have a right to know," said Arum in Monday's released statement. "The only way to restore fans' confidence in boxing is by letting an independent body investigate every detail of the fight no matter how big or small."
The split decision, in which still-undefeated Bradley won 115-113 on two cards, was greeted by gasps and boos at the MGM Grand and ended Pacquiao's 15- fight winning streak.
