Jeff Horn Wants Terence Crawford Rematch - in Australia

Boxer Jeff Horn wants to bring American nemesis Terence Crawford to Australia for a rematch.

The 30-year-old was comprehensively beaten by Crawford in Las Vegas in June.

That loss not only cost Horn the WBO welterweight title he'd won by defeating Manny Pacquiao in Brisbane last year, but the manner of the defeat did huge damage to his reputation overseas.

Horn will begin the road to redemption at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night when he takes on veteran Anthony Mundine.


That fight will be at a 71kg catchweight and has prompted speculation Horn may look to move up a weight division for his future fights.

One bout, however, would be enough for Horn to keep fighting at welterweight.

"I'd love to fight Crawford again but I'd like to get him back here if that's possible," Horn said.

"If we can draw him out at Suncorp or somewhere in Australia that would be great.

"It all depends on dollar symbols for them."

Horn's trainer Glenn Rushton said there's no doubt a fight in Australia between his charge and Crawford would be a huge event - and one he definitely wants to see happen.

He said it's simply a matter of making an offer Crawford's management cannot refuse.

"At the end of the day we've just got to prove ourselves worthy of that, we need to come back and get two or three good wins, hopefully another world title under our belt, and then get Terence Crawford back for a rematch," Rushton told AAP.

"We need Crawford to keep building his brand and if he keeps doing that, then absolutely we can certainly get him back and I want him back.

"We've got a point to prove."

You have nothing to prove other than admit the WBO was rightfully beaten out of you because it never belonged to you in the first place.

[QUOTE=revelated;19308519]Crawford has ONE big name: Gamboa, and even that's debatable. You're going off eye test rather than resume - which is fine, but let's just be clear here. Jeff "Legend Killer" Horn has FOUR names, all with decisive endings. Crawford…
