Jeff Horn is the new WBO welterweight champion.
The good news is that it was a very entertaining fight on the big stage, which is all too rare for boxing of late.
The bad news is that it was another controversial decision, which is all to common in boxing.
Pacquiao said he respects the judges’ decision. A very gracious comment considering how controversial this decision is.
Horn just challenged Floyd Mayweather to a fight in the post-fight interview and then said he would also be open to a Pacquiao rematch.
He also added that today is “not the best moment in his life,” saying that is to come with his wife who is pregnant with his first child.
What a day for Horn. He won a world title and scored major points with his wife.
The outcome is that boxing has a new name and draw in Jeff Horn. The Australian Rocky is a world champion and he won’t be teaching school again anytime soon.Read all here
