Horn stuns Pacquiao in bloody battle

Brissy Boy Jeff Horn Unfazed By Claims The Pacquiao Fight Was A Stitch-Up

Jeff Horn beat Manny Pacquiao in Brisbane on Sunday to win the WBO welterweight championship in what the pundits are calling "one of boxing's greatest upsets".

'There's always going to be the backlash where people are going to say I lucky, or whatever, ' Horn said on Monday.

Local hero Horn started the Battle of Brisbane bout strongly with a dominant opening two rounds, but the Filipino star fought back in ominous fashion, nearly ending it in a brutal ninth round where he made Horn his personal punching bag.

"We would like to echo the stand of many boxing followers on the possible errors of the referee and the judges who officiated the subject fight", their statement said. "I respect that", Pacquiao was quoted as saying by broadcaster ESPN. Steve Bunce, another ESPN boxing writer, believed however that "Horn deserved his two-round win" and suggested that "Pacquiao was made to look old - now he should retire". At 29, unheralded, unrated and flat-out laughed out by American pundits, Horn stunned the boxing world.

In the middle of Suncorp Stadium, Horn won the WBO welterweight title against a legend of the sport, Manny Pacquiao.

"Nothing will change: Senator Manny Pacquiao will remain our People's Champ", Abella said. With Horn charging forward all day, he ducked down and it was nearly inevitable one of them would be opened.

Pacquiao's close loss to Horn had Roach contemplating if his ward is done being a boxer.

However, Pacquiao's strength and conditioning coach, Justin Fortune, was less than impressed with the officials.

"Nagpahiwatig na (He has given a hint)", said Winchell Campos, a Team Pacquiao member, after the Bible service attended by close to 200 worshippers at the Sofitel Brisbane ballroom.

"In that ninth round, I was like "I don't know if I can handle any more of these rounds" but then he came back and he was just like a different person, it was just wonderful", she said.

Pacquiao suggested immediately after the fight, however, that he would fight on and exercise his right to a rematch. "He might have come underdone in this fight, I don't know". Those punches are counted by humans and with the awkward style of both fighters, it was hard without the benefit of slow-motion replays to see just who landed what as the two flurried furiously at times in the ring.

"I have a lot to do with the school still", he said.
