'Pacquiao was robbed,' 'lawn chairs,' and other #PacHorn reactions

MANILA, Philippines – Australian boxer Jeff Horn is the new WBO welterweight champion, after defeating Filipino champ Manny Pacquiao. (READ: Horn wins decision over Pacquiao in bloody Brisbane brawl)

It was a literal bloodbath between the two boxers who both put their heart on the line. As always, social media is almost always all hands on deck whenever Pacman is in a fight. (READ: Live updates: Pacquiao vs Horn - Battle of Brisbane)

Manny Pacquiao looking like a Tasmania Devil #PacquiaoHorn — jamar dowdye (@Blindninja82) July 2, 2017 Predictions were made. Some saw Pacquiao as the 'clear winner.' What an ending. Pacquiao the clear winner but wow. The sort of fight they make movies about. #PacquiaoHorn — UnderhookDDT (@UnderhookDDT) July 2, 2017 Others thought that if Pacquiao fails to knockout Horn, he would lose the match, which he did: Pacquiao might take a loss here. Two cuts off head clashes. He's gotta finish this. — UNO Mas (@theoneUNOMas) July 2, 2017 Some thought he needed to lose: I hope that loss to Pacquiao knocked some sense into him — Kevin Tan (@kevincraigftan) July 2, 2017 And that he needs to retire: As usual, Pacquiao is a sport: Even with the questionable loss pacquiao is very respectful and gracious. That's impressive right there #PacquaioHorn — Sully (@SullyVibe01) July 2, 2017 But the rest of the social media, did not take the loss lightly. See some of the reactions below: Horn headbutt Pacquiao twice, and the ref almost stopped the fight in the 9th round but still won? #PacquiaoHorn — Jake Clemons (@ClemonsJake) July 2, 2017 #PacquiaoHorn — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) July 2, 2017 Uhhhhhhh, can U Say Bullshit??!!Manny got Fucked!!! That's the Face of a Winner??! — Samuel L. Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) July 2, 2017 I have to apologize... your real winner is Manny Pacquiao. #PacquiaoHorn — Aheggs (@Aheggs12) July 2, 2017 The judges right before the winner was announced #PacquiaoHorn pacquiao got robbed... — Andy Valerio (@AndyValerio84) July 2, 2017 #PacquiaoHorn how was Horn the winner when Pacquiao was punchin his eye in the back of his head — RudeAssGirl (@queen0fFiasco) July 2, 2017 The whole world: Manny Pacquiao is the winner. Judges: .... #PacquiaoHorn — Kaj N. Gumbs (@POTUS_2017) July 2, 2017 Bogus bogus. Home town cooking? Tough loss. Pacquiao didn't start well but finished great. — Charles Tiu (@charlestiu) July 2, 2017 Lmao they robbed Pacquiao with that loss — darom (@BASEDARAB_) July 2, 2017 Would have loved a Pacquiao loss if he really did deserve to lose. — Mikee Javier (@mikeemeatymeat) July 2, 2017 Yankees blow the win and Pacquiao gets robbed by unanimous decision.. What a night.. — Andrew Hitch (@Andrew_Hitch) July 2, 2017 In the 6th round of the match, Pacquiao received a huge cut on the head and netizens were concerned: Pacquiao getting bloody after that headbutt #PacquiaoHorn — gifdsports (@gifdsports) July 2, 2017 Lots of blood on Pacquiao's scalp, luckily for him it's not on the eye. Shouldn't be a big issue except for cosmetics #PacHorn — Ryan Songalia (@ryansongalia) July 2, 2017 Meanwhile, there was some serious shade being thrown at the SunCorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia, where the "Battle of Brisbane" was held. Netizens can't help but feel for the people who paid for ringside seats and got white "lawn chairs." A panorama of Suncorp Stadium for #PacHorn — Ryan Songalia (@ryansongalia) July 2, 2017 Imagine those people paying all that money to sit in a plastic deck chair — John Olson III (@jhnyo3) July 2, 2017 Switching to the Pacquiao fight, and imagine paying thousands of dollars to sit in $5 plastic walmart chairs — The Boy Absolute (@ScandalousMurph) July 2, 2017 Lol pacquiao still top 10 pound for pound but boxing in a ring surrounded by plastic picnic chairs. Makes no sense — Young Demogorgon (@thatmanbutta) July 2, 2017 Do they seriously have some cheap ass plastic lawn chairs for ringside seats? #PacquiaoHorn #TopRank — Mario Torres (@MarioLeonTorres) July 2, 2017 Another boxer who caught the attention of social media was Timothy Bradley, Jr, who lost twice to Pacquiao out of 3 matches, when he referred to the Japanese as "those Japans." Did Timothy Bradley just say "something about those Japans" ? #PacquiaoHorn — aaron charlow (@acharlowmedia) July 2, 2017 Quote of the Night from Tim Bradley: "There's something about those Japans" #pacquiaohorn — Derek (@Latin4Cookies) July 2, 2017 The JAPANS, Timothy Bradley are you serious? lololol "Something about the JAPANS" #PacquiaoHorn — pierre (@WonderfulNews) July 2, 2017 Meanwhile: Despite his loss today, I will always be grateful to Manny Pacquiao for lifting our spirits and uniting our nation all those years. #PacHorn — Gideon Lasco (@gideonlasco) July 2, 2017
