Watch: Pacquiao’s reaction after commentator says that he should’ve won vs Horn

Manny Pacquiao suffered the fourth lost in nine matches after he was defeated from Australian, Jeff Horn for the WBO world title on Sunday.

However, commentator Teddy Atlas didn’t hold back on his thoughts about who should’ve won the match.

Atlas, who was commentating for ESPN, believed that the Philippine should’ve won the contest.

He said: “It reminds me of that practise look, I’m not gonna mince words that stupid practise in the States where some idiot decided to give trophies to everybody just for a good effort.”

“Instead of saying a guy won, a guy lost and you deal with it. You learn. It’s part of growing up, it’s a part of life.

“But they give everybody a trophy. That’s what they did tonight. They gave a trophy a win to Horn, the local kid, for trying hard. You’re not supposed to get it for trying hard. You’re supposed to get it for winning!”

“I thought Pacquiao won the fight if you go by the real rules, the Marquess of Queensberry rules. Who lands the cleaner punches.”

And Pacquiao looked like agreed with Atlas’ word as he was seen smiling with a tone of irony, while a rematch is said to be on the cards. //Actuantes//
