Newman Ferrara LLP Announces Investigation Into Boxing Corruption and Suspicious Result of Pacquiao-Bradley Fight in Las Vegas
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Newman Ferrara LLP today announced that the firm has launched an investigation into possible corruption and suspicious conduct involving boxing promoter Bob Arum and certain officials of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), which governed and sanctioned the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley in Las Vegas, Nevada on June 9, 2012.
Viewers, commentators, boxing experts, and book makers were shocked when Bradley was named victor when the fight ended unmistakably in Pacquiao’s favor. Suspicions were raised further by the pre-fight conduct of Arum, a promoter for both fighters, who had already scheduled a re-match for November – an event which could only be profitable if Bradley was named victor in the first bout. In addition to other scrutiny about his conduct, in 1995, Arum paid a substantial penalty for trying to bribe the International Boxing Federation to sanction a fight.
Individuals who paid up to $65 to watch the match on Pay Per View or similar broadcasting networks have the right to expect a legitimate, uncorrupted bout. Concerned viewers of the fight who paid the Pay Per View fees are encouraged to contact Newman Ferrara partner Jeffrey M. Norton at (212) 619-5400 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this investigation, their rights, or potential remedies.
