Australia's Jeff Horn, a former teacher shocked Filipino Manny Pacquiao with a defeat to claim a unanimous 12-round decision and win the WBO world welterweight title in front of 50,000 fans at Brisbane's Lang Park on Sunday.
The unheralded 29-year-old former schoolteacher, who improved his record to 18-0-1, was adjudged the winner over the eight-division world champion by scores of 117-111, 115-113 and 115-113.
Pacquiao's long-time trainer Freddie Roach predicted the fight would be short and sweet but Horn - unbeaten in his 17 previous professional fights - applied pressure by winning some of the early rounds and Pacquiao needed treatment during the 6th and 7th rounds for a cut on the top of his head that resulted from a clash of heads.
