Jeff Horn's Coach: There is Unfinished Business With Pacquiao

Glenn Rushton, the trainer of former WBO world champion Jeff Horn, says his boxer would love to do a rematch with eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao.

Last month at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the 40-year-old Pacquiao defied the critics by winning a tough twelve round decision over previously undefeated Keith Thurman to win the WBA welterweight title.

Two years back, Pacquiao lost a controversial twelve round decision to Horn in Brisbane. The victory gave Horn the WBO belt. Since then, the Filipino star has defeated Lucas Matthysse, Adrien Broner and now Thurman.


Rushton was impressed by Pacquiao's recent performance.

He believes Pacquiao was a better physical specimen than the boxer who lost a decision to Horn.

“I think he is, I think the fight galvanized him a bit,” Rushton said to

Before he can think about Pacquiao, Horn will first collide in the ring with Michael Zerafa in Bendigo on August 31.

Should Pacquiao want revenge, Horn and his handlers are ready and willing to make a second fight - but he warns that Pacquiao would suffer another loss.

“If ever Manny Pacquiao wants that fight with Jeff Horn, I think it’s unfinished business, then we’re up for it, we would certainly do it again,” Rushton said.

“I believe the outcome will be the same but I think it’ll be an even better fight than the first one.”

Before he tasted defeat for the first time, Thurman had actually praised Horn for his performance against Pacquiao.

“Go back and watch the fight (against Horn). That’s the day I gave him the nickname 'T-Rex Arms.' Jeff Horn was a real man. He manhandled Manny Pacquiao," Thurman said.

[QUOTE=Richard G;19997217]We all know that there is never going to be a rematch with Horn for lots of reasons, I for one would not like to see it mainly because he has moved up in weight and to come back…

[QUOTE=fernandtg;19996559]So you just chose to reply to my last sentence? Talk about ducking. :lol1: Why is it reasonable to rematch Horn (in Australia, to boot) but not Floyd? In terms of legacy AND money, the Floyd rematch makes much more…

[QUOTE=Richard G;19995087]Hating at it's finest? The real hate comes from twisted freaky pactrads who can't accept that their god can legitimately lose a fight. I admire Packy's boxing ability but he does duck, a lot, and for that he can…

[QUOTE=fernandtg;19993679][URL=""]Wishful? You sure? [/URL] Those who count gave him the win on Brisbane, hence Pacquiao's refusal to fight over there again. Other than that, why would you even think that a guy who just fought Thurman and stated that he's…
