By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Dean Lonergan who co-promoted the WBO welterweight title bout when Jeff Horn caused a major upset victory over Manny Pacquiao last weekend at Suncorp Stadium Brisbane with over 51,000 fans in attendance was critical of ESPN broadcaster Teddy Atlas, who refused to accept the decision and called the sport “corrupt.” Lonergan stated that Atlas was in the tank for Pacquiao.

“A big reason the American people are questioning the result of the fight is that Teddy Atlas was simply biased in his commentary,” Lonergan told the Daily Telegraph newspaper. Continue reading “Horn promoter rips “biased” Atlas”

WBO to review Horn-Pacquiao bout

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBO President Paco Valcarcel has announced that the WBO will review Jeff Horn’s victory over Manny Pacquiao with a panel of five judges with audio muted but the decision will not be reversed.

“We will appoint five (5) anonymous competent Judges from different countries to watch the bout without sound distraction. Then, we will tabulate the results to ascertain clearly which rounds each fighter won using an average scale based on 60, 80 and 100 per cent. This means that 3 of the 5 officials have to agree to determine which fighter won the round.

“The purpose of this review is to be able to give the fans certainty of who was the winner of the bout, even though we do not have the power to reverse the decision of the judges based on discretion and, in this case, we do have a rematch clause on the fight contract.”

The WBO had previously reviewed Timothy Bradley’s victory over Manny Pacquiao in 2012.
