Posted: July 5, 2012 in Uncategorized

Unbeaten Timothy Bradley has relinquished his WBO light-welterweight title after winning the welterweight version in controversial circumstances against Manny Pacquiao on June 9.

The American had worn the 140Ib belt since 2009 before opting to fight at welterweight.

As a result, Mexico’s Juan Manuel Marquez has been elevated to full title holder at light-welterweight.
