Did Pacquiao Make the Right Choice Passing Up on the Rematch with Horn? What's next?

No Pacquiao- Horn Rematch, at least for now

In an expected yet surprising move, the Filipino boxing icon pulled out from the rematch with Jeff Horn.

The rematch between the two fighters may much more be anticipated than their first meeting because of the controversial decision when they met the first time. You may recall that the 29-year-old Australian defeated the 38-year-old eight division champion in a controversial decision that outraged the boxing community all over the world. The undefeated, then unknown boxer Horn did well against Manny Pacquiao but not nearly enough to defeat the WBO welterweight champion, Manny Pacquiao at least in the eyes of the majority. However, the judges saw the fight differently and Jeff Horn got his moment of glory in front of his hometown fans.

 A rematch clause that will not be exercised, at least not yet. 

November 2017 was the original date of the rematch. There were already reports that the fight will once again be in Jeff Horn's turf but after a number of conflicting reports and conversations, we found out that Manny Pacquiao is stepping away from the rematch and will be focusing on what could be his full-time job after boxing, to be a full-time senator. There were also reports that Manny wanted the fight in the Philippines and not in Australia. 

Senator Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao has decided to forego the rematch as he is prioritizing his fight outside the boxing ring. The Fighting Senator has been busy with his senatorial commitments among other things and by the looks of it, boxing may no longer be a priority as he now focuses on bigger and socially relevant battle that will affect the lives of Filipinos.

Manny has already earned his spot in boxing history and has cemented his status as one of the best boxers of all time and while retiring on a winning note would be preferrable, there is no need for him to further risk his health especially in a fight that may have no bearing on his legacy. A win against Jeff Horn doesn't prove anything aside the first fight being a farce.

My Prediction: Pacquiao will call it a career and retire healthy.
