The WBO boxing organisation says it will review American fighter Timothy Bradley's controversial victory over Manny Pacquiao in their welterweight championship fight in Las Vegas at the weekend.

Bradley, the WBO's junior welterweight champ, moved up in weight and claimed a split decision to take Pacquiao's WBO welterweight belt.

However, there was a storm of controversy as the vast majority of observers had Pacquiao of the Philippines a clear winner.

It was the first defeat in seven years for Pacquiao, who landed 94 more punches than Bradley.
