Jeff Horn Beat Manny Pacquiao To Win WBO World Welterweight Title
Jeff Horn beat Manny Pacquiao to win the WBO world welterweight title in Australia last night, after a unanimous points decision from judges.
The three judges scored the fight 117-111, 115-113, 115-113, to former schoolteacher Horn, from Brisbane.
Twenty-nine-year old Horn has won 17 and drawn one of his 18 fights, while veteran Pacquiao, eight-time world champion, has lost four of his last nine fights.
Reports claim that Horn will have picked up a guaranteed $500,000 (£383,832) for the fight.
But not everyone thought Horn deserved to go home with the belt:

Pacquiao, however, seemed a bit more level-headed, telling journalists: "That's the decision of the judges. I respect that."
What do you guys reckon?
