After much controversy in the outcome of the Pacquiao-Horn fight that saw the latter walk away with a surprising victory via unanimous decision, the WBO has agreed to re-score the fight.

However, they can’t change the outcome, so…yeah.

Said the President of the WBO, “The purpose of this review is to be able to give the fans certainty of who was the winner of the bout, even though we do not have the power to reverse the decision of the judges.”

WHAT? They want to give the fans certainty by reviewing the fight without being able to reach ANY other outcome other than the one already declared?

This is destined to fail as a tactic. The fans that are irate are feeling that way because Pacquiao should have won. Either the judges will find Pacquiao DID win, but do nothing to change the result, or they’ll confirm he didn’t, and those fans will just argue that another level of corruption exists.

Boxing. You gotta love it.
