* The Pacquiao era is over, falling at the hands of previously unknown Jeff Horn, whose inspired performance sees him enter at #9, as #3 Pacquiao exits, probably for good


* I’m sure he’ll box on, but as a faded force, so thank you Manny Pacquiao for one of the greatest boxing careers of the modern era. Privileged to say I saw a prime Pacquiao fight live in 2010.
