The first Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley fight ended in controversy at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in June 2012, courtesy of what fans and fight organizers considered a poor decision by the three judges scoring the welterweight bout.
Pacquiao, who appeared to dominate Bradley from start to finish, shockingly lost a split decision. It was classified by some as the worst decision in boxing history, prompting Washington politicians to ask for a review of the sport.
Maybe judges Glenn Trowbridge, Michael Pernick and John Keane will do better April 12 at the rematch at the MGM.
The trio, along with referee Kenny Bayless, were chosen today by the Nevada State Athletic Commission to work the fight.
Pacquiao also was approved today by the commission for a fight license — a process required for fighters older than 35.
