The first surprise came when ring announcer Michael Buffer announced that there was a split decision, and the biggest surprise came in the reading of the scores. Jerry Roth had it 115-113 for Pacquiao, while judges Duane Ford and C.J. Ross had it for Bradley by the same score.
The Associated Press scored the fight 117-111 for Pacquiao.
Arum submitted a formal request to the Nevada Attorney General's office on Monday asking for an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the fight. A spokeswoman for the Nevada Attorney General's office said in an email to the AP that Arum's complaint is currently under review.
The decision ended Pacquiao's 15-fight winning streak, but also sets up a potential rematch later this year.
