Jeff Horn beat Pacquiao, an eight-time world champion, following a unanimous points decision in Brisbane, Australia. "And he has been out of action and coming back to have a fight with Conor McGregor", Horn said.

Local hero Horn started the Battle of Brisbane bout strongly with a dominant opening two rounds, but the Filipino star fought back in ominous fashion, nearly ending it in a brutal ninth round where he made Horn his personal punching bag. "I was feinting a lot, trying to upset his rhythm and I think that was working throughout the majority of that fight", said Horn, who stands three-and-a-half inches taller than Pacquiao. But Pacquiao is no longer among the elite, which is why he had to go to Australia in the first place to score a reputed $10 million payday.

A 2012 Olympian, Horn's best win had come against faded former world titlist Randall Bailey and it was widely believed facing Pacquiao would prove too much of a step up.

"It was hard, hard getting through that round, hard getting hit, getting caught with a shot and then continue on", Horn said.

Delhi University's first cut-off list admissions concluded

"I think we have established some mental dominance there over Manny Pacquiao".

Ask any number of people at Suncorp Stadium, in Las Vegas or anywhere else in the world and it's pretty clear Manny Pacquiao was robbed of his welterweight title on Sunday. The bullying nearly drove Horn to suicide. At 38, it was exactly the fight he didn't want.

Pacquiao's Australian coach, former heavyweight boxer Justin Fortune, had described the referee as "sketchy" and the judges as "crazy" following the bout.

"We have provisions about a rematch and so forth but Kate tells me she's running for office again in, when, November?" he said on Sunday after the fight.

"It was a close fight, it could have gone either way", said Arum.

Pacquiao did manage to land some left jabs in the opening rounds to take the early points, but Horn refused to back away and his brawling tactics paid dividends through the middle stages.

"Show me something in this round, or I'm going to stop the fight", the referee warned the Australian.

Pacquiao said he would "absolutely" return for a contracted rematch against Horn.

"From the beginning, we knew Pacquiao was in for a rough night because the kid (Horn) was packing heat". You could sense that he was willing to do whatever it took to get the victory.
