5 independent judges confirm decision for Horn over Pacquiao

5 independent judges confirm decision for Horn over Pacquiao”

The WBO have released a statement following their official review into the decision of the Jeff Horn-Manny Pacquiao fight.

The Filipino, 38, urged governing body the WBO to review an "unfair decision and officiating".

The unanimous decision in the Australian's favour was questioned by observers and the Philippines Games and Amusements Board (GAB) sent a letter asking for a "thorough review" of the fight on Monday. "(E) ven though we do not have the power to reverse the decision of the Judges based on discretion and, in this case, we do have a rematch clause in the fight contract".

The WBO wrote back on July 6, local time, to announce it would appoint five anonymous judges from different countries to watch the fight again.

Of the five judges scoring the fight, one judge had Pacquiao winning by one point (114-113) while one judge had the fight even (114-114).

The original fight was scored 117-111, 115-113 and 115-113 by Roldan, Flores and Cerdan respectively, who have each overseen hundreds of fights.

Three of the five judges had to be in agreement to determine a victor from each round.

While Pacquiao has contested the decision and said he wants a rematch, and that Horn has taken the challenge of a second fight, there's nothing on the table just yet.

Pacquiao was unanimously outpointed in Brisbane last week as 29-year-old Horn won his first world title.
