MANILA, Philippines -- Manny Pacquiao says he wants a rematch with Timothy Bradley after a five-judge panel assembled by the WBO championship committee unanimously favored the Filipino fighter in a video review.

Pacquiao said Thursday he would prefer a rematch rather than Bradley giving up the WBO welterweight title that he won on a split decision because "people may think I just usurped it."

The five judges on the review panel all scored the fight in Pacquiao's favor – 117-111, 117-111, 118-110, 116-112 and 115-113. At the June 9 bout in Las Vegas, judge Jerry Roth had it 115-113 for Pacquiao, and Duane Ford and C.J. Ross had it for Bradley by the same score. The Associated Press scored it 117-111 for Pacquiao.

"My supporters shouldn't worry. We're going to get that title," Pacquiao said.

The WBO can't overturn the result of the fight.
