Manny Pacquiao wants Jeff Horn rematch, on one condition

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

Networks haven't yet given up on boxing though as evidenced by ESPN going all-in for the controversial Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn fight from Australia on Saturday.

"Nothing will change: Senator Manny Pacquiao will remain our People's Champ", Abella said.

Horn's trainer, Glenn Rushton, said that numerous comments made in the lead up to the fight were utterly disrespectful and Horn had proved he was fully capable of fighting against the world's best.

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.

Reports claim the underdog won a guaranteed A$500,000 (£295,000; $384,000) from his fight against Pacquiao, and he could now be set for even bigger paydays.

That is the plan from Manny Pacquiao's camp for the boxing legend, who controversially lost his WBO welterweight title to Australian Jeff Horn last Sunday. 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". But boxing experts were almost unanimous in their opinion that Horn received a gift, and Pacquiao was the bout's true victor.




"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 unbelievable", she said.

If Filipino former champion invokes the rematch clause that was in the contract for Sunday's fight, Horn knows he will be in for an even tougher test.

"Show me something in this round, or I'm going to stop the fight", the referee warned the Australian. That's a little disrespectful.

The eight division world champion said the referee was too lenient and had let Horn get away with too much missed calls.

Nonetheless Pacquiao scored points in the early rounds with his probing left jab but he was on the back foot in the middle rounds as the taller and heavier Australian cut him above both eyes. "If nobody is there I tend to not try very hard".

But Horn was awarded a contentious unanimous decision as the Filipino suffered the seventh defeat of an illustrious 68-fight career. "I respect that", Pacquiao said afterward. We should be celebrating his determination and grit - and his stunning achievement.
