Horn did well, for all the hype over Hooper Horn was easily our best performer at these games. Just a shame to come against the Ukrainian, otherwise there would be a medal around his neck. The Ukrainian was just a little bit too busy and ring savvy for the inexperienced Horn.

He really had a go...really proud of him.

He was outclassed pretty much from the start but hung in there all the way..thought he deserved a few more points overall.

He didn't just try to stick to a gameplan that wasn't working...tried a few different things but the Ukranian knew to much, landed the more telling blows clearly...I think the Ukranian would make a pretty good pro.

Bad luck Horny, last man standing 'great effort...and well done Naomi for representing woman in the first year of womans boxing at the olympics







Hooper is turning pro, who he will fight under is the next question? Some say he needs a trainer who will teach him discipline, take out the ****y in Hooper and you will have a better boxer. Needs a good smack over his bare bum [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] KMA.

Congrats to Jeff Horn on getting through to the quarters. Outstanding effort

Unfortunately I can't see us winning an Olympic boxing medal any time soon though. Hopefully in 4 years time that will prove to be a silly comment.

Jeff had a red hot go and put it all on the line, the work rate in the last round was frantic.
Can't ask for much more than that, he did Aus proud...
