Former teacher Jeff Horn stuns Manny Pacquiao in great boxing upset

If Jeff Horn defends his newly won world title against Manny Pacquiao later this year, the boxing world will know who the former Brisbane schoolteacher is. Horn said, "I don't really get into that type of thing (making anti-LGBTQ statements)".

Lonergan said he had received advice not to schedule a fight at Suncorp in November, the shadow date for Horn-Pacquiao II, because of the higher chance of rain. "We have a rematch clause, so no problem".

Networks haven't yet given up on boxing though as evidenced by ESPN going all-in for the controversial Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn fight from Australia on Saturday.

Boxing has been seemingly on a never-ending search for relevance for the past two decades but the buzz generated by the Pacquiao-Horn fight and ensuing fights on ESPN could be a win-win for both.

The bout ended with the fighters in a clinch on the ropes and although Pacquiao gave a little shuffle and a grin to show he had plenty left in the tank, his fate was in the hands of the judges.

"Manny Pacquiao is an absolute warrior, he's a legend of the sport, " he said.

Horn, 29, surpassed nearly every expectation that had been placed on him. He was much tougher than I expected.

"It would be awesome to have him back here fighting and do it again if he wants to, " he said.

However, Pacquiao's strength and conditioning coach, Justin Fortune, was less than impressed with the officials.

"I'm going to talk to Manny about maybe calling it a day, maybe this is it", Roach said. "But I thought they were very disrespectful when people were saying things [before the fight]. I can remember some days that I felt that because of the bullying".

"He didn't fight badly or anything like that, he did well in some of the rounds, but he just wasn't consistent enough for what I want", said Roach.

"That was hard, sometimes I think people need to be investigated".

"I wouldn't envision myself running around to state governments of NSW and Victoria to do boxing events with Jeff Horn simply because our friends are up here in Queensland and it's a much better fit. Hopefully he comes back in the rematch and beats Horn just like he did to Tim Bradley after losing that first fight, which was also a bulls-- decision".
