Jeff Horn Can't Wait To Prove Point By "Beating Pacquiao Again!"

2012 Australian Olympian Jeff Horn (17-0-1, 11 KOs) is very eager to get in the ring with Manny Pacquiao for a second time.

Last week, Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank confirmed to BoxingScene.com that his fighter had exercised an immediate rematch clause to meet Horn in the ring before the year is out.

Last month, Horn pulled off a major upset when he secured the WBO welterweight world title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Pacquiao before a crowd of 51,000 fans at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.

The decision was deemed controversial by a lot of observers, who felt Pacquiao had done enough to win. But nobody disagrees with the fact that Pacquiao's performance was flat and his activity was lacking.

Horn wants to prove that his victory was no fluke.

"I'm happy for a rematch, especially after all the flak I received before the second scoring came out. Now it's out, I still receive people saying I didn't win. I'm willing to prove it again and beat him for the second time," Horn said to the Sydney Morning Herald.

"I'm still proving a point. I've got to make sure I train just as hard. I never say I want a knockout but it's always easier if the fight ends before the 12th round. I can improve a lot more from where I have been in the past. I think I did well in the last fight, I'll do better the second time," he said. "I've done it before, I know what I have to do to try hard and do it again. I know I can push through to more levels."

The rematch, like the first, will take place in Horn's backyard of Australia, likely on a date in November. Because of the winter weather, the rematch will have to take place indoors. The paper notes that the Queensland government has first and last rights but their entertainment centre only holds 13,000 fans. Melbourne has Etihad Stadium with a roof while Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena holds 21,000.
