How did you score Pacquiao vs Horn?

Who really deserved to win in Brisbane?

The Upset of the Year — deserved or not — is in the books. Jeff Horn is still undefeated as a professional, he’s the new WBO welterweight champion, and Manny Pacquiao is a 38-year-old fighter with no belt.

But who deserved the win? That’s the real question for most of us.

As mentioned in the recap, there’s no lack of controversy here. Pacquiao (59-7-2, 38 KO) dominated the CompuBox stats, but as many of you have noted, that doesn’t mean everything. Horn (17-0-1, 11 KO) fought better than just about anyone expected, too, but does that mean he deserves the W?

This isn’t really something that matters that much, of course. Whatever our debates and arguments, Jeff Horn won in Brisbane. We’re almost surely headed for a rematch — it’s guaranteed as long as Pacquiao wants it, which he says he does, unless Horn wanted to give up his WBO belt, which surely he does not.

But how did you score it? Manny or Horn?
