Horn: If Crawford Rematch in Australia - Might Be Different Story!

Jeff Horn is still mulling the idea of a revenge match with WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford.

Crawford stopped Horn in the ninth round in Las Vegas in June to take the WBO crown that Horn captured with a shocking upset over Manny Pacquiao in July 2017.

The loss to Crawford, which is Horn's first as a pro, has created a thorn that he wants to remove badly.


Horn is being lined up for a major Australian showdown, when he goes against heated rival Anthony Mundine in the coming months at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

After a few wins, Horn is hoping to get Crawford back in the ring.

He believes the rematch might play out differently, if he gets Crawford to fight him in Australia.

“Vegas was an amazing experience but I did a lot wrong,’’ Horn said to Courier Mail. “I know I can fight a lot better than I did against Crawford. He was able to outbox me on the back foot but I’ve learned from that not to rush.

“It’s frustrating to be out of the world title picture and to have that TKO loss against my name — it was my first loss since I was at the Olympics six years ago. I’m still getting over it.

“There’s no better remedy, though, than to come back with a big win. To get back on the world stage I have to beat Mundine well. I would love to fight Crawford again in my backyard and it might be a different story next time.’’

Horn is really motivated for the fight with Mundine, especially with the scenario of returning to the scene where over 50,000 fans watched him beat Pacquiao.

“It was breathtaking fighting Pacquiao here, having everyone cheering your name,’’ Horn said. “To come here and do it again against Mundine will be a dream come true.’’

the fight wasn't close at all, and why on earth should Crawford go there anyway? No matter what, the outcome remains the same

He is right you know. It will be different. Instead of getting hizazz beaten in Vegas, he'll get hizazz beaten in Australia. :burnout: :rofl: :alcoholic

Horn must want a death wish, if Crawford pummels him continuously, in Australia they would allow it to continue which would give him severe brain damage than he already has! Leave Bud alone Jeff, don’t quit your day job!
