If nothing else, the WBO review of Manny Pacquiao's loss to Timothy Bradley means we can all feel better about our sanity and can trust our own eyes.Actually, it really does mean nothing else. Sure, five other judges took a look at the fight and all of them scored it for Pacquiao. That's hardly surprising, and it's pretty easy for them to have done so after the fact.
