McGregor: Horn Mauled Pacquiao - That Was No Robbery

UFC superstar Conor McGregor believes Jeff Horn (17-0-1, 11 KOs) was the legitimate winner of last month's fight with Manny Pacquiao.

Horn pulled off a huge upset decision win to capture Pacquaio's WBO welterweight title before a crowd of 51,000 at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.

Afterwards, there were many who felt Pacquiao had done more than enough to win - and called the outcome a "robbery."


There was even a scoring investigation conducted by the World Boxing Organization. They determined that Horn was the rightful winner of the bout.

McGregor also agreed with the judges.

"Look at what happened to [Pacquiao] in that last fight. He got mauled. He got absolutely mauled in that fight. People were crying ‘big robbery,’ I didn’t see no robbery in that fight. I saw a man that just got mauled in a fight," McGregor said

Pacquiao will get the opportunity to avenge that loss, if a deal is finalized for a planned November rematch at the same Brisbane venue.

McGregor is making his professional boxing debut on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. He will take on returning former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. - who at 40 years old is snapping a two year retirement stint.

McGregor has stated in recent weeks that he intends to continue his boxing career - if he pulls of the big win.

If McGregor pulls off an earth shattering upset, would he have any interest in facing some of the other big names in boxing?

“None of those names interest me at this present time. Like I said, I’m facing the god of boxing at the moment. (Mayweather) is supposedly the God of boxing and he could have stayed the God, he could have rode off 49-0. Instead, now I am here, and now I am the God of boxing," McGregor said.

Oh absolutely. After what Nelson pulled in that fight, Robert will have to up his ref'ing skills to make sure it's not dirty and cut ridden, otherwise boxing will have another turd lobbed into the punch bowl of garbage refs.…

McGregor just lost some of his fans who were Pacquiao fans and transitioned to his fans.

he was busted up because of headbutts, not punching. its hardly the same thing as someone getting pummeled with clean punches.
