Twitter Reacts to Jeff Horn Calling Out Floyd Mayweather After Pacquiao Victory
While Jeff Horn may have shocked the world with his unanimous decision victory over legend of the ring Manny Pacquiao, it seems more than just a few people have had their feathers ruffled by the controversial outcome. Teddy Atlas asked Horn straight to his face if he felt he had really won the fight, while Kobe Bryant, Omar Epps and analyst Chris Broussard all took to Twitter to express their horror at the judge’s’ decision.
Horn then took a moment to shock the world all over again when he was given access to a microphone, calling for a fight with Floyd Mayweather, the greatest defensive boxer of our generation. The 29-year-old Australian boxer held up a pair of gloves and a walking stick, asking “Which one do you want?”
Of course, calling out someone as gifted as Mayweather when you’ve been given a home cooked decision victory is probably the last thing you want to do. Then again, with Mayweather fighting UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor who is 0-0 in professional boxing, anything is possible.
Athletes, celebrities and fans reacted to the call out straight away on Twitter, and they definitely think Horn may be reaching more than a little bit when he says he’s in the same league as Floyd Mayweather.

If you think Floyd Mayweather is a boring boxer, please just stick to watching the Rocky films on repeat. Boxing isn't Streets of Rage.
