Pacquiao Fans Ready to Move On after WBO Scoring Review Backs Horn

Pacquiao HornA scoring review by five independent judges has backed the controversial scoring decision handing Jeff Horn a unanimous win over Manny Pacquiao in the WBO Welterweight title fight.

Fans of Pacquiao reacted with relative silence and, at least on social media, appear to have accepted the decision.

The scoring review gave Jeff Horn backers a chance to crow-many of them ridiculing ESPN and its ringside boxing analyst Teddy Atlas who openly criticized the decision immediately after it was announced.

“Upon the analysis, the findings stated that Pacquiao won the 3rd, the 8th and 9th by 100%; the 5th round was won by 80%; and the 11th round by 60%. Horn won the 1st, 6th and 12th rounds by 100%; rounds 2nd, 4th, and 7th by 80%; and then, the 10th round by 60%,” the WBO said in a statement.

“From the results, it can be established that Pacquiao won 5 rounds while Horn won 7 rounds.

“The next step of the analysis was to combine the Independent Judges with the Bout Judges to find the percentage agreement by round. Upon doing this analysis, the findings of the Judges stated that Pacquiao won the 3rd and 9th by 100%; the 8th round was won by 87.5%; no rounds were won by 75%; the 5th round by 62.5%; and the 10th and 11th were even rounds.

“On the other hand, the Judges findings stated that Horn won the 1st, 6th, and 12th rounds by 100%; by 87.5%, he won the 4th and the 7th; the 2nd was won by 75%; none were won by 62.5%; and the even rounds were the 10th and the 11th.

“Based on this analysis, Jeff Horn was the winner of the bout.”


Under the agreement signed before the fight, Pacquiao has the right to a rematch. Media in Australia reports that rematch would likely occur in November, and due to the weather, will be moved from the 51,000 outdoor stadium in Brisbane to a 15,000 seat indoor arena at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.
