              Eight-time world champion boxer Manny Pacquiao was in Washington Tuesday, visiting with Nevada Senator Harry Reid on Capitol Hill. Pacquiao was wrapping up his press tour for his next fight, May 7th against Shane Mosley in Las Vegas. (Feb. 15)

The special panel tasked by the World Boxing Organization president Francisco Valcarcel to review the controversial fight of Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley had already the conclusion. The fight was indeed the win of the pound for pound king Manny Pacquaio.

The five members of the panel have unanimous votes with 117-111 for two judges, while the three judges scores 118-110,116-112, and 115-113. Despite the panel's findings, WBO rules cannot allow the decision to be overturned. The most the boxing body can do, according to Valcarcel, is to order a rematch, something Arum has recently said he is no longer keen on doing.

The panel’s finding generally reflects the sentiment of boxing observers who are on the ringside. The observers said that Pacquiao wins the fight by various margins.

Bradley won Pacquiao's welterweight belt via a split decision, with two judges scoring it 115-113 for the American and a third scoring it 115-113 for Pacquiao. The decision sparked massive outrage within the boxing community and even had two United States senators pushing for the creation of a national boxing commission to regulate the sport, prompting Valcarcel to order a review.
