BOXING: MANNY PACQUIAO ASKS WBO TO ACCEPT REVIEW OF TITLE LOSS TO JEFF HORN


Manny Pacquiao or Pac-Man as his fans like calling him has asked WBO to accept a request from Philippines Sports officials for a review of his welterweight title loss to Jeff Horn...
Philippines' Games and Amusement Board called out to World Boxing Organisation's boss Francisco Valcarcel to conduct a thorough of the judging and refereeing of the "Battle of Brisbane" bout...

The bout was staged outside and surrounded by 51,000 boxing fans at the SunCorp Stadium



Pac-Man said he would not want to see the sport die because of "unfair decision and officiating"...

He also said he has a "moral obligation to uphold sportsmanship, truth and fairness."

Pac-Man trainers also weighed in sighting poor refereeing as the headbutts were not being checked and final statistics show Pac ahead of Horn by twice as many punches...

Pac had a rematch clause in the contract but when the dust settles then we will have a clear picture of his future...
