The day after the stunning split decision that gave Timothy Bradley Jr.  a controversial win over Manny Pacquiao, an Irish betting site is refunding Pacquiao bettors in what it calls a “justice payout,” American magazine Sports Illustrated reported on its website.

Paddy Power, Ireland’s largest telephone betting service, issued this statement on its blog on Sunday:


“It was a result that stunned the world, even by modern professional boxing standards.

“Last night in Las Vegas, the brilliant Filipino Manny Pacquiao lost his WBO welterweight belt to Timothy Bradley in a controversial split-decision defeat.


“With that, Paddy Power has rolled out one of our famous Justice Payouts. If you had placed a bet on Manny to win in a prefight outright or on points, that money is now back in your account. We Hear You!”

The boxing world reacted with collective shock when the judges handed the split decision to Bradley. That decision came despite Pacquiao landing almost 100 more punches throughout the fight. He also landed more punches in 10 of 12 rounds.
