It was definitely home cooking for the Australia native. Yet, Jeff Horn defeated Manny Pacquiao by unanimous decision at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

The Pacman had Horn beaten in almost every round except for four rounds in our belief. The judges said Horn won 115-113 and 117-111.

Horn’s corner had to beg for another chance following the ninth round. Now, he’s the WBO Welterweight champion.

“Show me something in the next round, or I’m going to stop the fight,” the referee said as he was going to stop the fight late. “Show me something.”

The judges gave Horn a “participation trophy” for trying hard despite clearly being beaten. Following the fight, he called out Floyd Mayweather — but Pacquiao said he wants a rematch.

The bogus decision made Horn improve to 17-0-1 in his career. This is Horn’s first decision since he defeated Ahmed El Mousaoui on December 5, 2015.

Pacquiao fell to 59-7-2 in his career. He’s lost twice in the past six decisions — and it’s his first loss since losing to Mayweather on May 2, 2015.
