JEFF HORN DEFEATS MANNY PACQUIAO IN CONTROVERSIAL DECISION

By now, you’re waking up to notifications and posts on social media about the crime that took place in Brisbane earlier this morning . Jeff Horn scored a very controversial upset over WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao by a unanimous judges decision in the fight that was billed as “The Battle of Brisbane”. The judges scored the fight 117-111, 115-113 and 115-113 in favor of Horn. Only problem was that anyone who watched the fight, saw Manny put on a great performance.

The fight was almost stopped by the ref in the 9th round when Horn seemed out of it.  “I’m here to protect you, OK? I think you’ve had enough,” Mark Nelson said. “Show me something in this next round, or I’m going to stop the fight.” Manny did fight conservatively and took a big risk allowing the decision to be in the judges hands.

“I didn’t expect that … that’s part of the game,” Pacquiao said. “That’s the decision of the judges. I respect that.” There’s a rematch clause in the contract, so we’ll be seeing the two in the ring again soon.

“Absolutely, yes. We have a rematch [clause] so no problem,” Pacquiao said. “Yeah, yeah. He beat me.”
