Boxing analyst Teddy Atlas couldn’t believe the results of the Pacquiao-Horn boxing match held in Brisbane, Australia. The championship match, which hailed Jeff Horn as the winner, sparked a critical social media trend worldwide. Just like Atlas, other celebrities across the globe couldn’t believe the results of the match.
Horn undeniably came out stronger in the first few rounds, but Manny Pacquiao rocked on the second half of the match. The referee even asked Horn to show something in the 10th round or the fight will be stopped.

Atlas could not contain his emotions when he confronted Horn.
As reported by CBS News, Atlas said,
“They gave a trophy, a win, a huge win to Horn, the local kid for trying hard. You’re not supposed to get for trying hard; you’re supposed to get it for winning!”
But he wasn’t done there yet.
During the post-match interview, Atlas, who was supposed to interview both the fighters told Horn face to face:
“Congratulations, great effort, but I thought you lost,” he said.
Atlas blamed corruption in the world of boxing for the shocking results of the match.
“It’s a corrupt sport. I’ve been in the sport 45 years. I’m sorry. … It’s a little blunt … but we have a corrupt sport,” he said to open his appearance. “… What else could it be? Corruption.”
Meanwhile, several boxing fans across the globe could not contain their disappointment over the results of the much-awaited match. Some celebrities even took to Twitter their reactions about the game and most of them thought the match was rigged.
The guy on the right won.
Various international personalities react to the results of the match.

Aaron Rodgers said boxing is a joke.
Karl-Anthony Towns said the results disrespected Pacquiao, a legend.
Mike Miller couldn't believe it either.

At the end of the day, however, the winner is the one who puts everything into the fight. What’s important is acknowledging the one who fights until the end with angst and perseverance – that is a real champion.
Manny Pacquiao never really cared about winning or losing, he just loves the sport. A real champion fights above and beyond winning. He may retire from boxing, but his heart is always fighting inside the ring.
Amid the controversy, Pacquiao remains grounded and humble, not minding what the whole world is thinking about the fight.
“He deserves it, no complaint.”
That, folks, is what we call humility and sportsmanship.
