The five officials, from all over the world, sat down and viewed a video of the fight earlier this week. Not surprisingly, considering the fact that most fans and experts had Pacquiao winning big over the unbeaten Bradley, all 5 WBO judges re-scored the fight for Pac-Man - and they scored it big for Manny..
The first judge had it 115-111, the second had it 116-112, the third 117-111, the fourth 118-110 and the fifth and final judge had it 117-111 for the Filipino superstar.
That's about as comprehensive as you can get, and the new scores are bound to convince the critics further that either incompetence or something darker was at work on June 9th.
Despite these new scores, the WBO will not be able to either overturn the official result or give Pacquiao back his welterweight title.
Only a rematch fought in the ring can bring Pac-Man's belt back. But will we see one?
