After losing his WBO welterweight championship to the Australian Jeff Horn, in Brisbane, Manny Pacquiao was given the chance to regain his belt.

Although, after protests from the Pacquiao camp, the scoring of the original fight was deemed to be fair, the WBO agreed to the duo meeting again.

The contest was scheduled for 12th November but news has broken that Pacquiao has now withdrawn from the re-match.

Now 38-years-of-age, Pacquiao?s camp have cited ?other commitments? as being the reason for his withdrawal.

Heavily involved in politics, with Pacquiao now senator of the Philippines, the feeling is that his political aspirations could well see the end of his boxing career.

Meanwhile, Jeff Horn is looking for another opponent for the bout in Australia.
