Jeff Horn rejects 'naysayers' after beating Manny Pacquiao

Pacquiao has now lost four of his nine fights and this latest setback could signal the end of his career, with trainer Freddie Roach saying in the build-up he would encourage his charge to retire if he was beaten by Horn.

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

It was a close fight - how someone can score it 117-111 to Horn is beyond me.

Some observers - including ESPN - scored the fight in favor of Pacquiao.

Pacquiao had won the WBO title on points against Jessie Vargas in November.

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

Jeff Horn, an ex-schoolteacher from suburban Brisbane, just gave Australian sport one of its greatest moments.

After laying flat on her back for about six minutes while the trainer attended to her, Konta rose from the court to resume play. In a freakish match, Johanna Konta defeated World No. 1 player Angelique Kerber to advance to the semifinals in Eastbourne.

The veteran had bounced back from his defeat to Floyd Mayweather in 2015 by overcoming Tim Bradley in their rubber match and comfortably beating Jessie Vargas to become a world champion once more.

"It's 1000 per cent up to Manny whether he wants to fight again".

"It was hard, hard getting through that round, hard getting hit, getting caught with a shot and then continue on", Horn said. Others felt Horn made a monumental mistake by not training in the USA and sparring with boxers similar to Pacquiao - even though Czar Amonsot, the WBA Oceania super lightweight, was selected as a sparring partner because he had a similar height and build to the legend. "I respect that", Pacquiao was quoted as saying on ESPN, which reported that the 11-time world champion said he would "absolutely" exercise his contractual right to a rematch.

He was expected to overcome the unheralded Horn in an effort to entice Mayweather into a rematch of their super-fight, but the unbeaten Australian rose to the occasion in what was only his 18th fight in the paid ranks. That's a little disrespectful. "I don't go there and teach but I still go to the schools and I know the kids will be proud of what I have done". In fact, he said that he had thrived on the extra pressure of fighting in front of the 50,000+ crowd.

"But he just couldn't do it and we lost the decision". "No one can justify Jeff Horn winning that fight but what I think was more surprising is how the Australian performed", said fight sports analyst Carlos Cinco when asked by BusinessWorld for his thoughts shortly after the Brisbane fight came to a controversial conclusion.

"I didn't see a lot there".
