Sports fans were extremely upset when Horn was announced as the winner by unanimous decision.
In a shocking, controversial outcome, Jeff Horn (17-0-1, 11 KOs) upset Manny Pacquiao (59-7-2, 38 KOs) by unanimous decision to win the WBO world welterweight title Sunday at Suncorp Stadium in his hometown of Brisbane, Australia.
Many thought the decision would come down to Pacquiao's corner as a unanimous decision after Pac Man landed solid counter punches on the young Aussie throughout the fight, but all three judges saw Horn as the winner and new WBO welterweight champion -- one actually scoring the bout 117-111 for the underdog.
When the decision was announced, just about everyone within arms' reach of a phone or computer -- including athletes and sports fans the world over -- vented their frustrations with the judges.
This was Horn's first bout against a marquee opponent in a pro career that began in 2013. Pacquiao clearly wasn't the fighter he used to be, as he struggled with Horn's physicality and couldn't finish the 29-year-old in a ninth round where he looked ready to topple at any moment.
