Bob Arum: “It was a close fight. I thought Manny won.”
Freddie Roach: “I have to go along with Manny and say I respect the decision of the judges. Well, two of the judges. I did think Manny won but Jeff Horn showed a lot of heart. He is a big, strong fighter and I congratulate him.”
Dr. Jeffrey Roth stitched up Manny’s headbutt lacerations. The right side was 5cm long and took nine stitches to close it. The left side was 3.5cm long and took eight stitches to close.
Newly crowned champion Jeff Horn needed seven stitches over his right eye.
