Timothy Bradley's manager said on Sunday that Bradley sustained a fracture to his left foot during his controversial victory over Manny Pacquiao on Saturday, while promoter Bob Arum said there would be no rematch unless there is an investigation of the fight and the judges' decision, according to Yahoo.com.
Bradley's manager, Cameron Dunkin, told Yahoo.com's Kevin Iole that X-rays show Bradley has a left foot fracture. His right foot is swollen but is not broken.
Bradley was in a wheelchair for his the post-fight press conference following his split-decision victory over Pacquiao in Las Vegas that gave the undefeated Bradley the WBO welterweight title.
Bradley said he heard his left foot snap in the second round, and in the fifth, he injured his right foot. He continued despite the injuries.
Bradley was a 4-to-1 underdog, and most observers thought Pacquiao had won the fight. All three judges scored it 115-113, with Duane Ford and C.J. Ross having it in favor of Bradley and Jerry Roth having Pacquiao as the winner.
It was assumed there would be a rematch, but Arum was still angry about the decision on Sunday and told Yahoo.com there would be no rematch unless Nevada attorney general Catherine Cortez Masto launches an investigation into Saturday's verdict.
