Round 1- Horn is the aggressor from the start, as he is able to bull Pacquiao into the ropes a few times. While Pacquiao catches a number of Horn’s shots with his guard, Horn does score with several hooks to the body and gets in a couple rights through the guard. Pacquiao smiles after this first instance. Horn establishes his awkward, dirty style quickly, using his jerky movement as well as using his forearm and whole body in the clinch. Pacquiao gets in some counter lefts, but Horn definitely did the superior work in the round.

Round 2- Horn is still pushing the pace and maintaining the greater work rate, but he is also doing more missing between the two. Most of his right hands appear to be blocked. Both are trading hooks to the body, where Horn’s best work comes from. Pacquiao is able to snap back Horn’s head a few times with counter left hands. I feel these shots in particular edge the round for him.

Round 3- Pacquiao starts to put his jab to work, which throws off Horn’s timing. Horn rushes in several times and to use roughhousing tactics, but he is unable to establish a real offense, as Pacquiao is slipping under his shots and coming back with counter left hands and right hooks. Pacquiao is also scoring with looping punches over the top when Horn is up close.

Round 4- Horn shoves Pacquiao to the canvas early, and this is the most eye-catching thing he does. This is the most tame round of the fight yet. Horn gets in a couple jabs, but Pacquiao is able to win the round with some straight lefts to the body and head. A better round for Horn than the last, but I cannot say he won it.

Round 5- Pacquiao has been doing a good job defending the combinations of Horn and overall preventing him from being the effective aggressor. Horn does get in a couple of right hands early, but his meaningful work after that is too far in between. Pacquiao comes on strong in the last minute, potshotting the left hand repeatedly to the head of Horn, while hopping in and out of range with different angles.

Round 6- Like usual, Horn comes out aggressive and bullys Pacquiao on the ropes in the opening moments. This is the most success he has had doing it thus far, as he is able to get in a right uppercut through the guard of Pacquiao. He does use his head in this sequence however, and another head clash opens up a cut on Pacquiao’s scalp. Horn lands his best right hand of the fight late in the round, but Pacquiao takes it like a champ.

Round 7- Pacquiao is doing the superior work through the course of the round with his 1-2 and right hook to the body. Another headclash opens up a second cut on the head of Pacquiao. Horn gets in a pair of rights late in the round, but Pacquiao backs him off with a left uppercut. While Horn may have got the better of this exchange, Pacquiao still did more in the round.

Round 8- Pacquiao is landing the left hand to the head frequently, while Horn is not doing much but continuing to make himself an awkward target. Pacquiao also gets some justice from earlier in the fight, as he shoves Horn to the canvas himself. While Pacquiao is unable to maintain a real offense when up close, he does cause Horn to run into some check hooks before he gets inside.

Round 9- In the first minute, Pacquiao lands a hard left hand on the chin of Horn. Despite standing up to this shot well, Horn starts to distance himself and merely walk around the ring. Pacquiao is able to cut the distance on him, landing left hands and right hooks as he pleases. Horn tries to tie up and escape the pressure throughout, but Pacquiao continues to blast him in the face with these power shots, leaving the right side of his face a massacred mess. An overhand left sends Horn reeling, but he survives the round. Excellent round for Pacquiao, who did just enough to make it a 10-8 round due to how one-sided it was. The ref goes into the corner between rounds and nearly stops the fight. While I credit Horn for coming back well in the fight after this scary moment for him, I don’t feel it would be enough for it to end the way it did. As a matter of fact, with how high Pacquiao should have been ahead at this point (at best, it would be 6-3), this also shows how bogus the outcome was.

Round 10- After nearly getting stopped in the previous round, Horn comes out and re-establishes his fight. He is able to keep it on the inside a lot, where he scores with some short hooks up close. While Pacquiao is able to land some left hands from the outside, Horn is landing just as often with his right hand. At the age of 38, I think the energy that Pacquiao expended in the previous round slowed him down a bit, which allowed Horn to creep his way back into the fight.

Round 11- Now Horn does virtually nothing besides get dirty in the clinches and miss punches. Pacquiao is not landing a lot of punches with full effect due to a mix of Horn’s jerky movement and by being a bit tired at this stage, but he clearly gets to the target more between the two. A snapping left hand from Pacquiao is the best shot landed in the round.

Round 12- They both pick up the pace for the final round. As expected, Horn is the one forcing the fight and getting off first. He is able to land some clean right hands through the guard of Pacquiao, but Pacquiao lands some left hands and one flurry to the body. The exchanges start to even out more and more as the round goes on, and Horn appears to get to the target more with his wide hooks in the closing exchange. Pacquiao seems spirited after the bell, as he should be. The result is announced as a shocking unanimous decision for Horn, with one judge somehow giving him 9/12 rounds. A stupid ending to a very good fight. While Horn definitely showed heart, guts, and will, he did not do enough to win at all. He was not the effective aggressor by any means, and while CompuBox is not trustworthy, he did not land a lot of telling blows for most of the rounds. This was far from one of Pacquiao’s best performances and his age did show, especially when he seemed somewhat burnt out in the 10th, he clearly outclassed Horn, landing the better shots as a whole and winning the portion on effective defense. One of the best things I can say about Horn is he did dictate pace often, but he was far too inconsistent to win what should have been his first loss. The other best thing I can say about him is he certainly did better than Timothy Bradley did, at least in the first and third fights. As is, this is another robbery decision Pacquiao suffered. He had shown to have difficulties with aggressive and dirty fighters in Nedal Hussein and Agapito Sanchez, and should have effectively pulled away with the win in all three, only to come up short in two of them. I am sure Pacquiao years prior would have stopped Horn, and he honestly may have stopped him had their discussed rematch actually occured, as he nearly did in this fight and still showed to be levels above Horn, while nearing the end of his career. I do enjoy Teddy Atlas lecturing Horn on why he lost, as it was funny, true, and Horn deserved to hear it. Despite the outcome of this bout, Pacquiao would prove to have more left in his career, as he would go on to have an impressive streak after this, while Horn would go on to get beaten up and stopped multiple times after this 15 minutes of fame.

'I do enjoy Teddy Atlas lecturing Horn on why he lost, as it was funny, true, and Horn deserved to hear it'.

Shocked to read that. I'll put the ball in your court, and go along with it being a robbery, why did Horn deserve to hear that?

Addi_Bomaye's picture

I feel like he deserved it cause he got all cocky after winning a fight that most people see him as the loser of (especially after the fact), I thought it was a humbling experience for him.

I couldn't disagree more strongly, he was emotional after one of the best wins in Australian boxing history, didn't disrespect Pacquiao. Atlas is the one who needs a humbling, and if you ask me, he's the one who had his 15 minutes of fame, he looked like a good trainer when Bradley and Gvozdyk beat Rios and Stevenson, but in their next tough fights, it was harder to give him credit as a trainer, I know they are not the only 2 notable foghters he's trained, but he's not a great trainer, he's very disrespectful, tactless, and is poor at his job. Think of the heart and fitness it took for Horn to survive the 9th and respond like that in the 10th, Atlas hasn't been there, there's a pattern, it's the likes of Atlas, Rafael, Merchant, who have never been in the ring, who disrespect fighters, it's very wrong.

Even if Horn had got a gift, Atlas running his mouth would have been well out of line, but Pacquiao wasn't robbed, you don't have to believe my scoring, believe Pacquiao's own trainer, promoter, who had no problem with the decision, the WBO did a review, and the Top Rank commentary backed up that it was a close fight, people have been mislead into thinking Pacquiao was robbed against Bradley and Horn when he wasn't.

I agree Horn and Pacquiao are on different levels, Pacquiao wasn't at his best based on his behaviour before the fight, looking terrible in sparring, Horn's style was bad for Pacquiao, and he wanted it more on the night.

Okay, you won that debate. You we’re definitely right about Atlas. Plus, I did give Horn credit for coming back well after the 9th. Alot of guys would have just sat down afterwards
