Battle Of Brisbane: Manny Pacquiao vs. Jeff Horn
Undefeated but unknown Jeff Horn pulls off a monumental upset on his home turf of Australia when he captures the WBO Welterweight Championship with a controversial but unanimous decision over Manny Pacquiao. Horn comes to fight, taking the first round by force and making many rounds close through the first half of the bout. In the sixth, a clash of heads opens a cut on the top of Pacquiao's head before Horn stuns him with a right hand. Another clash of heads sees Pacquiao cut over the left eye, causing blood to pour over his face. In the ninth, Pacquiao unloads on Horn, lighting him up with power shots for half the round and bloodying his face, but the challenger survives. Horn makes a fight of it in the twelfth before the judges award him the bout.
