Jeff Horn upsets Manny Pacquiao in controversial decision

“The Battle of Brisbane” was supposed to be a walkover for Manny Pacquiao, a potential tune-up for a rematch with Floyd Mayweather, but Jeff Horn — and the judges — had another idea.

Horn came out swinging, literally, and announced his presence with authority. But after going toe to toe with Pacquiao for eight rounds, he got battered, bruised, and bloodied in the ninth round and seemed to lose all momentum towards the end of the fight.

Just when it looked like Pacquiao was going to win an easy decision, the judges took over and gave the hometown fighter the nod.

Just listen to the shock in the announcers voices as Horn is announced as the winner.

Horn was clearly in the fight early on, as Pacquiao was bloodied early on. But then came the ninth round and Horn barely got out of it alive.

In fact, the referee warned Horn after the round that he was inclined to call the fight, telling Horn, “I think you’ve had enough.”

 

But Horn stayed in the fight and hung around long enough to get the home-town decision.
