JEFF Horn’s proposed rematch with boxing legend Manny Pacquiao in Brisbane in November is in danger of falling over.

The Pacquiao camp is still keen to fight but may want to postpone until next year, according to Top Rank boss Bob Arum who spoke to the Daily Telegraph in Las Vegas.

Horn’s promoter Dean Lonergan reacted furiously.

“To say he’s having second thoughts is pissing me off,” Lonergan said.

If he carries on again, it would be my advice to move on and forget about him.

“We’ve already booked the venue for November 12.”

Arum will leave Las Vegas this week for the Philippines to get a definite answer.

“A lot of it is about Manny’s senatorial duties and he’s not a youngster anymore,” Arum said.

“That was a very physical fight and he may feel like he needs more time to get ready.

“Whatever happens we’ll do a title defence for Jeff in November against a top welterweight in Brisbane.

“Jeff is a young guy and we have an obligation to him to have him earn money and keep him active."

“If it’s not Manny you adjust prices and maybe do it at a smaller venue.


Lonergan later issued a statement.

“Two weeks ago Manny Pacquiao confirmed to Bob Arum of Top Rank that he wanted to exercise his option to rematch with Jeff Horn for the WBO world welterweight championship,” it said.

“November 12 was the date Pacquiao agreed to the rematch. Up until late this week that was the outcome Top Rank, DUCO promotions, TEQ and Brisbane marketing were working towards in good faith to achieve having the rematch in Brisbane late this week.

“When Bob Arum saw media reports out of the Philippines that representatives of Manny Pacquiao were trying to get the fight in Manila, Arum gave Manny Pacquiao until Saturday, August 26 to confirm that he would recommit to fighting in Brisbane.

“Pacquiao has yet is to reconfirm and as such now has put the Horn rematch in jeopardy.

“On that basis, Top Rank, DUCO promotions, Tourism Events Queensland and Brisbane marketing are now reassessing their options”

Arum’s Top Rank has signed a 16-fight deal with the ESPN network.

Part of that deal is to stage a fight out of Brisbane in November with Horn, who has picked up a huge following in the United States as a result of his win over Pacquiao.

A bigger statement for Pacquao, in case Horn refuses to fight in the Philippines, is to walk away and fight somebody else.

Why does Horn deserve to have both fights in Australia? Who does he think he is?

The champion.

The problem is that the previous contract states that rematch should be in Australia...

Pacquiao-Horn fight in Manila. Why not?


By Al S. Mendoza - AUGUST 29, 2017

JUST to clear the air: It wasn’t Tourism Secretary Wanda Corazon T. Teo who wanted the Pacquiao-Horn rematch held in Manila. Instead, it was the other way around: Manny Pacquiao’s camp, through Eric Pineda, had offered to have the fight staged here in December.

There is even a venue already: the INC-owned Philippine Arena in Bulacan, which can seat 50,000.

While we would be deeply honored to have a hand in possibly staging here the Pacquiao-Horn return bout, we need to put it on record that we’ve been approached and requested for help in making it a reality,” Assistant Secretary Ricky Alegre of the Department of Tourism (DOT) said. “In fact, it wasn’t only once or twice but thrice that we were offered to backstop the project.”

Almost immediately after Teo broke out the news of the Pacquiao-Horn rematch being planned to be held here, Bob Arum issued a disclaimer.

“It can never be held in Manila because a contract stipulates that Australia would be the venue should a rematch is held,” said Arum, Pacquiao’s American promoter.

Yes, but in boxing, nothing is really final.

Until both boxers are finally up in the ring, and the bell is sounded signaling the start of the first round, there is no fight to speak of.

I see one crucial move if we honestly want the Pacquiao-Horn rematch held here: Pacquiao and Arum should make a pact with Secretary Teo to have it staged here. Next, they agree to fly to Brisbane and convince Aussie officials as copromoters in the bout when held in Manila.

Now, to cement this mission, President Duterte must be the No. 1 proponent of Manila hosting the fight. Better yet, the Chief Executive writes a letter to concerned Aussie officials toward this end. Personally delivered by Madame Teo.

Can the Aussies reject a President, especially in the mold of Mr. Duterte?

And, before I forget, Asec Alegre must be in that trip, too. I know him from Adam.

You’ll never know when his two cents’ worth of wisdom would come in handy when the going gets tough. Razor-sharp

Manny explores Philippine Arena option

Posted on Thursday Aug 31st at 8:00pm
By Joaquin Henson

MANILA, Philippines - Sen. Manny Pacquiao said the other day he’s exploring the possibility of staging his rematch with WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn in the country on Nov. 12 and disclosed a training timetable to start next week.

Pacquiao said there is no stipulated site in the rematch clause of his contract with Horn. “If you’re Bob (Arum), wouldn’t you keep your options open?” said Pacquiao who lost the WBO crown to Horn on a unanimous 12-round decision in Brisbane last July. “What if there’s interest from another country and a bigger offer is made? Why would you limit yourself to Australia for the rematch? I wasn’t born yesterday. Bob knows what he’s doing.”

Arum was recently quoted in media as saying he would visit Pacquiao here to finalize the terms of the rematch. Pacquiao, however, said he hasn’t been advised of the visit. The only thing he confirmed is that he is in talks with the Horn camp about the second meeting. “Pinaguusapan,” he said.

A source said Horn is guaranteed a purse of $1.7 Million in the rematch. According to Dan Rafael of ESPN, Horn received a contracted purse of $500,000 for the first fight and a portion of the gate receipts while Pacquiao’s minimum was $10 Million. If the rematch is held in the Philippines, Horn’s paycheck will be a substantial upgrade from his guarantee to lure him out of Australia. An amount of $3 Million has been mentioned as a likely offer for Horn. In the event the rematch is staged in the country, it will probably be held at the 55,000-seat Philippine Arena in Bulacan.

Wherever the fight is, Pacquiao said he’ll start getting ready with conditioning drills next week. He mentioned a training schedule of two months to prepare for the rematch whose outcome was tainted because of American referee Mark Nelson’s tolerance of Horn’s illegal tactics. Nelson turned a blind eye to Horn repeatedly butting, elbowing, holding and tying up Pacquiao to restrict his space to operate.
Pacquiao said he couldn’t imagine how judge Waleska Roldan scored it 117-111 for Horn. The two other judges Chris Flores and Ramon Cerdan both saw it 115-113. If Flores and Cerdan scored one more round for Pacquiao, the result would’ve been a majority draw with the title staying in his hands. “Maybe, I’ll agree to fight Horn in Australia again if I’m allowed to choose the referee and judges,” said Pacquiao jokingly.

Regarding the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor bout in Las Vegas last weekend, Pacquiao said it showed the difference between boxing and mixed martial arts. He noted that in the first six rounds, McGregor had the upper hand but as the fight progressed, it was obvious the Irishman had no stamina to survive a long haul. Mayweather baited McGregor to punch himself out in the early going then with the UFC brawler tiring out, stepped up his attack and scored a stoppage in the 10th round. Right after the fight, Mayweather was interviewed by Showtime’s Jim Gray in the ring and said he owed it to the fans to engage McGregor because it wasn’t the case when he faced Pacquiao two years ago. Mayweather’s mention of Pacquiao sparked speculation that he may be open to a rematch despite his announcement of another retirement.

Pacquiao isn’t closing the door on a Mayweather rematch but for it to happen, he must beat Horn convincingly in their return bout to regain the crown and put it on the line against Money. At the moment, Mayweather may not be thinking of another fight because his bank account just got a considerable deposit, maybe in the vicinity of $250 Million. But with Mayweather’s loose spending habits, it probably won’t be long before he’s lured back into the ring if there’s another fat paycheck waiting.

Pacquiao said if Mayweather stood his ground against him instead of fighting defensively, the outcome would’ve been different. As it turned out, the fight was close even as Pacquiao hurt his shoulder in the fourth round and fought with basically one arm the rest of the way. There was no clear consensus along press row as to who was the winner. Pacquiao wondered if he could give Mayweather trouble with one arm, imagine what he could do with two.

“I didn’t know (Miguel) Cotto fought on the same night as Mayweather,” said Pacquiao. “If I only knew, I would’ve watched Cotto’s fight instead.” Cotto, whom Pacquiao stopped in 2009, decisioned Japan’s Yoshihiro Kamegai to win the vacant WBO superwelterweight crown at the StubHub Center in Carson, California last Saturday night (Sunday morning, Manila) when Mayweather battled McGregor

Rematch talks still in progress

Posted on Thursday Sep 7th at 8:00pm
By Joaquin Henson

MANILA, Philippines — Sen. Manny Pacquiao said yesterday his rematch with WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn of Australia remains under negotiation and he’s optimistic of finalizing a deal to make it happen at the 55,000-seat Philippine Arena in Bulacan late this year.

Asked to comment on Australian promoter Dean Lonergan’s recent announcement that he has withdrawn from the rematch initially set for Nov. 12, Pacquiao said he didn’t know anything about it. If negotiations work out, Pacquiao said the return fight could be held in November or December.

Lonergan said Pacquiao is scheduled to go on a state visit to China and government duties will interfere with his preparations for the rematch so that Horn may fight somebody else in November. Jessie Vargas, whom Pacquiao decked twice and decisively beat on points last year, has been mentioned as a possible opponent. Another option is MMA brawler Conor McGregor who was stopped by Floyd Mayweather, Jr. last week. Neither Vargas nor McGregor could pull in the kind of sales figures that Pacquiao would.

Pacquiao is slated to fly to Beijing on Sept. 27 but it won’t be a state visit. He’s attending a boxing show produced by MP Promotions with Sean Gibbons as matchmaker on Sept. 29. Pacquiao will be back in Manila on Sept. 30. The show will feature eight bouts with the main event a WBO title fight. Five Filipino fighters will be brought in. Chinese boxers, including featherweight Que Xu, will figure in every match. Que fought in the Pacquiao-Vargas undercard in Las Vegas last November and has a 10-2-1 record, with 3 KOs.

Pacquiao is a major attraction in China and last month, was introduced as an Anta brand ambassador during a trip to Xiamen and Beijing. The huge Chinese market is a magnet for investors, businessmen and service providers. According to Pacquiao, a regular boxing event with no world titles at stake can easily draw a TV audience of 300 million. If a pay-per-view subscription is $10, an audience of 100 million will generate revenues of $1 Billion. Considering Pacquiao’s popularity in China, his fight should attract a pay-per-view audience of over 300 million.
Pacquiao declined to reveal details of the talks with Horn’s camp. However, a source said the rematch clause stipulates a purse of $1.7 Million for Horn if it’s held in Australia and Pacquiao has offered the champion $3 Million to fight in the Philippines. What is now being discussed is the split of the TV rights and pay-per-view income. Horn has supposedly asked for a larger share of the Australian and New Zealand pie. Would investors or sponsors be able to put up a purse to make it worth the effort for Pacquiao? “Don’t worry about me,” he replied.

Pacquiao said once the rematch is set for the Philippine Arena, he’ll invite celebrities to be at ringside, including Mark Wahlberg and Sylvester Stallone. He also plans to invite Mayweather.

Pacquiao said he hopes to regain the WBO welterweight crown from Horn before the year ends so that negotiations can begin to bring Mayweather out of another retirement. If Mayweather agrees, the plan is to stage their rematch in April or May next year. By then, Pacquiao will be 39 and Mayweather, 41.
