The call was however rescinded by the WBO as the board backed the judges after five other judges validated the decision in favour of Jeff Horn.

Manny Pacquiao has hinted he will continue his boxing career despite having lost to Australia's Jeff Horn earlier this month via a controversial decision that angered fans and prompted the World Boxing Organization to review the Brisbane fight. Horn defeated Pacquiao via unanimous decision to capture the WBO welterweight title in the main event of an ESPN-televised card that had done record viewership numbers for a boxing fight on cable.

"Based on this, five anonymous, competent judges from different countries were asked to watch the bout without sound". Horn was given the first, sixth and 12th rounds by 100 percent, the second, fourth and seventh by 80 percent and the 10th by 60 percent.

Philippines legend Pacquiao, victor of an unprecedented eight world titles in different weight divisions, defiantly suggested he was not ready to hang up his gloves after controversially losing to Horn in Brisbane on July 2.

The WBO said the further step of combining the independent judge's scores for each round with the bout judge's scores for each round also confirmed a win for Horn. Pacquiao had Horn in wobbling and in trouble in the ninth round, but couldn't finish him off.

The posts were made Wednesday as Horn was telling reporters in the United States he was the deserving victor of the bout but that only a rematch will settle the controversy. "Manny is a senator, a champion, but was like wrestled there, abused by them", Mitra told The Associated Press in the Philippines' capital after the WBO confirmed it would review the scoring.
