Bradley Focuses on The Win, Not The Controversy
PALM DESERT - The WBO says it will review Saturday's title fight between Manny Pacquiao and local boxing champion Timothy Bradley. Cathedral City native Bradley won the fight in Las Vegas 115-113 on two scorecards, while losing by the same margin on the third.
Bradley is still a Cathedral City resident and a Cathedral City High School graduate.
Some are questioning the judge's results so now the WBO's Championship Committee will review video of the match with five "recognized international judges" and will make a recommendation. Bradley spoke to the media today about his win, saying he is confident in his performance and notes that he doesn't even have a bruise on his face, while Pacquiao looks all beat up.
This weekend Bradley will be honored by his hometown of Cathedral City. On Saturday, June 16 from 7 to 8 p.m. in Cathedral City's Town Square, the boxing star meet fans during a welcome home rally. The event is free and open to the public.
