Jeff Horn will beat Manny Pacquiao again, says trainer

Manny Pacquiao lost his WBO welterweight world title to Jeff Horn in a unanimous decision today (Saturday HST).

In a gripping, brutal and controversial contest, the 29-year-old Australian's aggression seemed to surprise the legendary Filipino and he won the bout on points, the judges scoring it 117-111, 115-113, 115-113 in Horn's favour. Horn said, "I don't really get into that type of thing (making anti-LGBTQ statements)".

I'm no expert on how fights are scored and judged but, for now, I'm just happy to see that the victor was the one who has (to our knowledge) never said that gay people are worse than animals.

Pacquiao, 38, has a rematch clause in his favour and said in the ring after suffering his seventh career loss he would be happy to activate it.

".Pacquiao looked very old and very much his age".

Pacquiao had been hoping to set up a second big-money showdown with Floyd Mayweather, but it was Horn who called for a fight with the unbeaten American immediately after his win.

He won the title after defeating Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines in a 12 rounds points decision.

"Manny Pacquiao is an absolute warrior, a legend of the sport".

Pacquiao alleged that Nelson was too liberal in allowing Horn to use wrestling and rough tactics while he was being pinned on the ropes many times during the bruising bout. The bullying nearly drove Horn to suicide. I didn't expect that tough.

"Jeff executed beautifully and it just went pretty much how I thought it would go", said Rushton.

"While we respect the decision, we are constrained to request for a thorough review by the WBO for possible miscalls of the referee where some deductions were not made and of the judges in their judging that have caused varying opinions on their objectivity".

"I think (Mr Arum) is just very keen to see me re-elected, I had to explain to him that it's January at the earliest", she told reporters.

"That was hard, sometimes I think people need to be investigated".

"He did his best at the end but I could see he was struggling mentally to get through those later rounds and whether he could come back".

The decision was met with criticisms not only in the Philippines but in the USA as well but Pacquiao insists that the 115-113 was fair enough.
