Manny Pacquiao v Jeff Horn: WBO judges rescore fight and get same result

Former welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao's controversial loss to Jeff Horn has been rescored by WBO judges - who reached the same result.

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

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

It asked five judges to analyse the fight and they found "Pacquiao won five rounds while Horn won seven rounds".

The five "anonymous, competent judges from different countries" watched the fight without sound, it added.

The WBO stressed the analysis was carried out for "transparency" as it did not have the power to reverse the original decision.

"It can only be revoked when fraud or a violation of law has occurred, which is not relevant in this case," a spokesperson said.
