The date for the rematch has now been revealed. The team behind former WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn have confirmed that he will take on Michael Zerafa in a contracted rematch in Brisbane on December 18.
The stage is set for a revenge match after Horn demanded the chance to make things right with Zerafa following his shock loss to the unheralded middleweight in Bendigo in August - which took place at the middleweight limit of 160-pounds.
There was a rematch clause that nobody expected Horn to exercise - and certainly Zerafa was shocked by the decision after battering and stopping Horn.
Zerafa and his team were outraged by the rematch decision, saying it would deny him a lucrative WBA middleweight title fight with Ryota Murata in Japan.
Horn was going to face Murata for the "regular" title in victory - but things didn't go his way and then everything was looked upon for Zerafa to get the shot.
The physically bigger fighter has vowed to end Horn's career in their rematch to be staged at the Brisbane Convention Centre after claiming his camp pleaded with Horn and his handlers to let him fight Murata, only to be knocked back.
Horn's camp have admitted they may have to talk about retirement if their charge suffers a second loss to Zerafa.
But camp insiders are confident that there won't be another upset, saying Horn had adopted a strict diet and new, disciplined training regime following his admission that he underestimated Zerafa and cut corners ahead of their August fight.
Horn hoped to fight at super welterweight but said he would still be confident if Zerafa insisted on staying at middleweight.
