Taken from sky sports news:
Manny Pacquiao's call for a rematch with Timothy Bradley has been backed by the World Boxing Organisation.
The Filipino's split-decision defeat in Las Vegas cost him his WBO welterweight belt and caused uproar in the boxing world.
The governing body commissioned a panel of veteran judges to review the fight, and all five gave it to Pacquiao.
The original result will not be overturned, but WBO president Francisco Valcarcel said: "If they want to make a rematch, we will approve the rematch and if they don't we will order one."
Pacquiao, who suffered the fourth defeat of his career at the MGM Grand, said: ''My supporters shouldn't worry. We're going to get that title.''
