Manny Pacquiao

Post by Bluejaygrad03 » Sun Jul 02, 2017 12:06 am

Undefeated Australian fighter Jeff Horn just upset Manny Pacquiao in a WBO Welterweight Championship fight tonight in Brisbane (early PM in Australia). Horn won by unanimous decision (two judges had it 115-113, third judge had it 117-111).

The fight was very close but based on what I watched in the fight, I figured Pacquiao would have won this one. Especially when Pacquiao nearly had this won by TKO after the 9th round.

This match was noteworthy enough as it was a non-PPV fight airing tonight on ESPN but this decision makes it an even more interesting one.

And Teddy Atlas was having nothing to do at the end of the broadcast with the judges scoring based on what he saw.

This fight was exhibit A on what a sham boxing is. Stats do not lie. When one fighter lands almost twice as many punches and is declared the loser...
I favor capital punishment. But there are alot of cases where I don't think capital punishment applies (parking violations) and cases where it should be applied (murder, child molestation, illegal HS football recruiting).- BirdWatcher

I'm shocked! When did boxing scoring become rigged? :joker

Around the same time pro wrestling ceased being athletic competition and became sports entertainment. :lol:

Mayweather vs McGregor is a joke. The real fight is September 16th, Canelo vs GGG.
