Hey buddy, I don't know whether or not you agree, but I thought this was a fantastic performance from Manny Pacquiao, and I understand why it has made people want Pacquiao to return to the ring, but to be honest, I think this fight was a great way for him to finish his career on a good note, and it is time to retire now, permanently, what do you think?

Hey Champ! I do agree that Pacquiao looked great in this fight, especially since we all weren't sure what Bradley and Atlas were gonna do as far as a fight plan. I think they chose the wrong one. I love Manny's fights so much that it's hard for me to let him go. Ya know? For his health, his family, and his extracurricular distractions, he should probably retire. However, I still think he can beat so many, if not all of these younger champions. I don't want to see him get hurt, but I also am not sad that he may keep fighting. It's really hard to accept when enough is enough.

Yeah he did, it's interesting, against someone as experienced as Pacquiao, what are the right tactics?, it's such a challenge, he was beaten more emphatically in this fight than either of the first two, but I'm sure you noticed, that eighth round, wow, what a session from Bradley, that was without any doubt the best round he had in all 36 rounds he spent boxing against Pacquiao. Of course it is, that just shows your a fan who really appreciates great fighters, I don't think any of us want to stop watching him fight, but we know in our hearts that the safe, sensible option at this juncture is to hang up the gloves?, if Pacquiao did return to the ring, who would you most like to see him fight?

What do you know about Jeff Horn?

I know he isn't so experienced, he's a big puncher, he's ticked all the boxes so far, beaten Ali Funeka and Randall Bailey, I mean, these are not great fighters, but I guess just because you beat a limited fighter doesn't mean you won't build on that when you step up, on the other hand, I think because lack of experience and lack of all round skill, he isn't in the same class as Pacquiao, he hasn't proven anything at a high level, and I think he might be a bit one dimensional. I think Horn is decent, can punch, and because he has both time and studying on his side, he might be able to give him a couple of minor problems. I think Pacquiao will stop Horn.

Champ, I gotta talk to you. If I saw correctly, you scored the fight for Horn. I'm going to be honest with you, my friend, I don't get it. I thought Jeff was aggressive, active, and lively, but extremely ineffective. I saw Pacquiao being patient, accurate, and effective throughout. You know I make highlight videos, and I've completed 9 rounds thus far. At this point, I've got it 88-83 for Manny. I could see it maybe a round or two closer if you're looking for Horn to win, but I think it's clear for Pacquiao. Jeff is missing most of his punches. Manny looks older and slower than normal, but he's still outboxing Horn. Or at least that's how I see it. Talk to me, Champ! Let me know what you're thinking, my friend.

Ok, well I'll explain it, first off, for the past 6-7 years I have looked up to Boxnation pundits, Steve Bunce, Barry Jones, Steve Lilis, John Rawling, they are THE best pundits in the UK with no shadow of a doubt, I, in years, have never seen them screw up, they all said the same as me, could go 2 rounds either way, but for us, Horn won, I stand by their confirmation that I got this one right, 100%!, not only would one of these guys have to be wrong, which is very unlikely, but they would all have to be wrong, for me to be wrong, now if you want to argue that that is the case, then I'll argue that I'll win the lottery five times in a row, and I hate gambling, haha, but no seriously, I know we're right on this.

I'll say a few things, Teddy Atlas is a bully, and a disgrace to the sport, lost every shred of respect I ever had for that man, Stephen A Smith has less boxing knowledge than my cat, stats, compubox, they are absolute garbage.

Bob Arum, is an outspoken, stubborn, old fashioned businessman who gets straight to the point, is willing to confront people, if he has something to say, he will say it, he, Manny Pacquiao's promoter, said the fight could have gone either way, as did Freddie Roach. After the full 12, there was little sense of triumph in the Pacquiao corner, Jeff Horn however, clearly a man who had 100% confidence in believing he had won. Paulie Malignaggi, also, said that the fight could have gone either way had Horn winning, that's 5 analysts, who believe me, are not wrong, so if you want to argue that the majority is right on this, the deal is, you have to argue that these guys were wrong, and I won't for a second believe that, I stand by my score, mark my words, as time rolls on, more and more people will realise that Horn won that fight.

As for your analysis on the fight, we can use words like 'effective', whatever, but to breal this down and explain in detail the meaning rather than using one word to unreliably represent it, Horn was active, aggressive, and accurate enough that he was out landing Pacquiao, for sure, the body work was great, those right hands ladning clean, Pacquiao really struggling to get his shots off. I didn't see him being patient, his work was under time pressure, and accurate, yes, but how many punches did he throw?, not enough to out land Jeff Horn, nowhere near, and he wasn't so accurate that he could get away with that low work rate, you can't land punches you don't throw. That doesn't surprise me, many people have it like that, but that is down to bias, misguided people, mistakes, maybe just missing a couple of details, another reason, but I'm extremely confident in that I'm right on this.

It's funny you mention 'looking for Horn to win', because man, everybody was really, really looking for Pacquiao to win, I'll tell you now, I wasn't, I wasn't expecting anything from Horn. Horn missed a lot of punches, but he also landed a lot, he definitely out landed Pacquiao by quite a lot. He sort of half out boxed him, in spots yes, enough to win the fight?, no.

So to sum this up, Horn, landing more, out hustling Pacquiao, overwhelming, draining, frustrating, out working the older, weaker man, Pacquiao, with the more calculated shots, the more accuracy, the better use of power, his experience serving him well, landing with mkre accuracy over all, at times, over lapping Horn's shots with his own. The fight coukd go 115-113, either way, my explaination to a outsider to this discussion is that you might be a little biased, and hey, sometimes it isn't something we realise is there, but nevertheless, we are biased.
