The Press Scores For Manny Pacquiao Vs Jeff Horn Tell You All You Need To Know

If you were in any doubt as to whether or not Manny Pacquiao was robbed after the scenes in Brisbane over the weekend, this should clear up the matter.

Heading into his clash with Jeff Horn on Sunday evening, Manny Pacquiao was the overwhelming favourite with most believing that the Filipino would dismiss his challenger with relative ease.

However, despite a reasonably solid performance from the 38-year-old, the vast majority of boxing fans were shocked when the judges unanimously scored the fight in favour of his Australian opponent.

Although some suggested that Horn deservedly won the fight, the vast majority felt that Pacquiao should have been announced the winner with some even stating that the Filipino had been blatantly robbed.


With the debate still rumbling on, one determined Reddit user (hotrodfantasy) has compiled the scores of every member of the boxing media that he could find and, as expected, an overwhelming majority scored the bout in favour of the Pacman.
