Networks haven't yet given up on boxing though as evidenced by ESPN going all-in for the controversial Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn fight from Australia on Saturday. "Wasn't the fight that I saw.Horn was very game but I'm hard pressed to see how he could have won that fight by any stretch".

Asked about the comments on Monday, Ms Jones seemed to give her own opinion about the possible poll date.

Brisbane is firming as the likely destination for Jeff Horn's first WBO welterweight title defence, but when it will happen or who he will fight remains entirely up in the air. He was much tougher than I expected.

The state election is due by early May 2018, but has been widely tipped to be held by early November.

Pacquiao had been hoping to set up a second big-money showdown with Floyd Mayweather, but it was Horn who called for a fight with the unbeaten American immediately after his win.

"In that ninth round, I was like "I don't know if I can handle any more of these rounds" but then he came back and he was just like a different person, it was just fantastic", she said.

"That's the decision of the judges, I respect that". Steve Bunce, another ESPN boxing writer, believed however that "Horn deserved his two-round win" and suggested that "Pacquiao was made to look old - now he should retire". Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, said it would be over in three.

Pacquiao's conditioning trainer, the Los Angeles-based former Australian heavyweight Justin Fortune, was critical of the referee and the judging. That's a little disrespectful.

"I wouldn't envision myself running around to state governments of NSW and Victoria to do boxing events with Jeff Horn simply because our friends are up here in Queensland and it's a much better fit".

Horn, a former high school substitute teacher, was not overawed by the occasion at all.

"If I try and make a frown or something then I can feel the bruises in it. I don't know why, I'm just wired that way", Horn said. We should be celebrating his determination and grit - and his stunning achievement.
