WBO President Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel said in a statement Wednesday that the WBO's championship committee will review video of the fight with five "recognized international judges" and make a recommendation. He said the WBO does not doubt the ability of the scoring judges.
"I feel confident there has been nothing untoward but if an investigation makes everyone feel better, do the investigation," Reid, the Senate majority leader, told reporters at his weekly press conference. It was first reported in the Las Vegas Journal-Review.
Reid, 72, is a former boxer who once served on the Nevada Athletic Commission and has judged fights. He is often ringside at big fights in Las Vegas, but skipped this one because of his wife's birthday.
"Remember this fight involved hundreds of millions of dollars, As I said I am confident there was nothing untoward. I think people just make bad decisions in a lot of things they do including judging fights. But it doesn't hurt to clear the air and take a look at this."
