The Philippines Games and Amusements Board said that it only wants to protect the integrity of boxing. It cites the miscalls by the referee and judges. Based on this, five anonymous, competent Judges from different countries were asked by the WBO to review the bout without sound. The results show that Pacquiao won 5 rounds while Horn won 7 rounds.

Unfair but Cannot Change

THE World Boxing Organisation re-scores the Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn welterweight title fight. This is because of the contentious unanimous decision awarded to the Australian challenger. However, it was clarified that there is no plan to change the result. The WBO just responded to the request of a Philippines government department to review the fight. Pacquiao accepted the decision but said that the referee was unfair.




Re-Scoring Results

The re-scoring tallied directly with two of the judges on the night. They both gave the 115-113 score for Horn. The third judge, Waleska Roldan, scored the Australian 117-111.




Promoter not Surprised

Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum indicates that a re-match with Horn is possible for November or December this year. Pacquiao was also open to this as confirmed by him during an interview after the fight. He is always welcome to the Australian audience because of his graciousness after his defeat.









End of Contract

The Philippine Senator, on the other hand, claims that his promotional agreement with Arum is at an end and he also considers retirement at 38. He is actually old already for the ring but Arum leaves the re-match decision to Pacquiao.
