    As the dust settled on Saturday’s Horn-Pacquiao fight, all anyone could talk about was how Manny Pacquiaio was robbed of a victory. He led in points, he led in rounds yet after the fight, when the referees announced that the young Australian had pulled off the upset, fans were up in arms.

    How could this be, they asked? Boxing is rigged they yelled, as if that was some sort of newfound revelation. It’s boxing, my friends. The fix has been in for years.

    My take on the fight is altogether different, however, for regardless of how you feel about the outcome, this bout featured something we hadn’t seen in ages and I am not referring to a changing of the guard.
