Pacquiao: We won the fight

Manny Pacquiao may have been the picture of graciousness and sportsmanship in the wake of his stunning loss to Jeff Horn, but the "Pacman" pulled no punches after the bout when asked about the controversial result.

"For me, we won the fight," Pacquiao told reporters in Brisbane, Australia. "It's clear naman, kahit i-review mo ang fight."

Making the first defense of his WBO welterweight belt, Pacquiao was expected to cruise past the little-known Horn, who was fighting in a world championship bout for the very first time in his career.

Instead, Pacquiao found himself in a war with Horn, who never let up through 12 rounds. The Filipino icon nearly ended matters in the ninth round, only for Horn to get a second wind in the final three frames.

Horn wound up with a 117-111, 115-113, 115-113 win to become the new world champion.

When asked about the result inside the ring, Pacquiao said he had no complaints.
