I agree.

On THAT particular day, against THAT particular version of Pac, he was the better fighter.

But I sure wouldn't bet on him in a rematch.
I’d still say Horn is a big threat to Pac.

Horn outworked and out fought him a couple years ago. Pac-Man is only getting older and will be even more battle weary after he’s handed another loss by Thurman.

Horn fought cleverly and aggressively, and regardless of how people scored it, he made life hell for Pacquiao for most of the fight.

Whether he could repeat it we will probably never get to find out. But as we have seen since, the claims at the time 'Pacquiao was shot,' were just plain wrong.

Maybe he's not completely shot.
But I don't think he's done anything since losing to Horn to show he's not at least nearing on being shot.

Easy enough to look spectacular against shot to shit Matthysse and Broner who didn't come to fight and threw next to nothing back at Pac.

I think Thurman is gonna nail the coffin this weekend on Pac's legendary career.

Hindsight and all that, looks like Pac is enjoying an ‘Indian Summer’. Going to be interesting to see how Horn goes at middleweight this weekend. Zerafa is the perfect fight to test the waters IMO.

Ah that ol' chestnut hindsight ay! Ya get that on the big jobs I guess haha>

I'm really looking forward to the fight this weekend. The undercard isn't spectacular but the main should be. I don't see either man getting the job done within the distance.

There’s an Team Ellis show on in October, I’ve got a couple of mates fighting on it, the card looks like a decent domestic card at first glance, I’m going to go if anyone else is keen.
