Manny Pacquiao lost his WBO welterweight world title to Jeff Horn in a stunning, unanimous points decision in a Sunday afternoon bout billed as the Battle of Brisbane in front of more than 51,000 people.Still, Pacquiao dominated the later rounds and had Horn wobbling at the end of the 9th.Pacquiao's long-time trainer Freddie Roach predicted the fight would be short and sweet but Horn -- unbeaten in his 17 previous professional fights -- applied pressure by winning some of the early rounds and Pacquiao needed treatment during the 6th and 7th rounds for a cut on the top of his head that resulted from a clash of heads.Roach had said earlier in the week that he'd think about advising Pacquiao to retire if he lost the fight, but that would depend on how he fought.Horn can't see Pacquiao retiring any time soon.
