Arum: Pacquiao vs Horn Rematch Would Likely be Held in November


According to Top Rank CEO Bob Arum a rematch would likely be held in November, with the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne, the likeliest venue. 

A return to Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium where the first fight was held was unlikely because of the possibility of rain. "If it was Brisbane, I couldn't do it in Suncorp because of the risk of rain. You have to do it in 14,000 seat-arena." Arum said

"But in Melbourne, you have a place that's bigger than Suncorp, which has retractable roof so we don't have to worry about intense heat or rain."

There will be an immediate rematch between Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquaio and the newly crowned WBO Welterweight world champ Jeff Horn because there is a rematch clause in contract and both sides want to do it again with the venue being the only issue for the fight. 

Jeff Horn believes that the rematch with Pacquiao will settle the controversy once and for all. Even the WBO confirmed him as the winner after re-scoring the fight.

"I feel like I've defended the title already and and I've only had it for a week"

"I kind of feel it has been put to bed and that I definitely won the fight because it has been rescored"

"But people are always going to have their own opinions and you're not going to be able to change those. So i guess only way you're going to be able do it is to have rematch. And I think I would do better a second time."

Manny Pacquiao hints boxing fans that he will continue his boxing career in a post to twitter:
"I love this sport and until passion is gone, I will continue to fight for God, my family, my fans and my country"
