No reversal of PacHorn decision, says WBO

After calls for a review of the world welterweight title bout between Jeff Horn and Manny Pacquiao, World Boxing Organization said that the controversial ending couldn’t be reversed.

The sanctioning body said that a reversal is only possible if there was violation of any law or if fraud was evident in the fight. Both instances, though, weren’t found in the 12-round fight that Horn won via unanimous decision in Brisbane, Australia.
