Pay Per View customers who shelled out nearly $65 to watch a supposedly fixed boxing match between Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley might fight to get their money back.The law firm Newman Ferrara LLP said Tuesday it was looking into possible corruption involving Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum and World Boxing organisation officials.

Many viewers thought the results of the fight were illegitimate after the judges declared Tim Bradley the winner.

The firm is contending that viewers had a right to see a fair match and should get a refund.

That law firm also claims that Arum previously paid a substantial penalty for attempting to bribe the International Boxing Federation.

Surprisingly, Arum also requested that the Nevada State Athletic Commission conduct its own investigation into the fight, The Telegraph reported.
