Pacquiao and Bradley rematch a must, says outraged Arum

BOXING promoter Bob Arum will look to make a November rematch between Manny Pacquiao and new WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley after admitting the latter’s split-decision win was “unbelievable”.

Two judges gave Bradley a 115-113 points victory despite many observers, Arum included, believing Pacquiao to be the clear winner, making a potential superfight with Floyd Mayweather even more unlikely and earning the promoter’s scathing criticism.

“Can you believe that? Unbelievable,” said Arum. “I’m going to make a lot of money on the rematch, but this [decision] was outrageous.”
