Many fans of Manny Pacquiao believed that the Filipino boxing champ was robbed by the title and they don’t believe the score cards released by the judges.
Even Tim Bradley said that Manny won the fight.
“I thought Manny won the fight but I’m not a judge” Tim Bradley said.
“Jeff Horn landed 15% of his total punches and 17% of his power shots, and gets a gift decision in his hometown,” @BoxingHype tweeted.
But some netizens said that it’s already time for the Pacman to retire because of his old age.
People thought that the match between Pacquiao and Horn will end in the 9th round, after the referee nearly stopped the fight because of the exhausted Australian boxer.
But during the last three rounds of the fight, the Aussie fighter continued his fight against the Filipino champ and won the fight via a decision.
Aussie Jeff Horn wins WBO welterweight title by unanimous decision by scores of 117-111, 115-113, 115-113
