MANILA, Philippines – Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao poked fun at the result of the "super fight" between Gennady Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on Sunday on Twitter.

Pacquiao live-tweeted the boxing match held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and after nine rounds, he said he had it 6-3 in favor of the Kazakh star.

The "Pacman" may have been surprised at the result, however. The match ended in a split draw, after one judge scored it in favor of Golovkin, another saw it for Canelo, and the third scored it an even 114-114.

"Did they bring these judges over from Australia?" Pacquiao tweeted, along with a laughing emoji.

Pacquiao, of course, was referring to the result of his own bout against Jeff Horn last July in Brisbane, Australia, which saw the Filipino ring icon lose a disputed decision.

All three judges saw the "Battle of Brisbane" in Horn's favor, much to the dismay of Pacquiao and his camp.
